Welcome to Ashmole Academy
Ashmole Academy is a high performing co-educational comprehensive school, situated in Southgate, on the eastern boundary of the London Borough of Barnet. The school was established in 1958 and in 1999 became a foundation school. From 1st October 2010 Ashmole became an outstanding school Academy. We currently have approximately 1500 pupils on roll including more than 350 students in our Sixth Form. Every year the school is over-subscribed.
At Ashmole Academy we value young people of all abilities and talents. We regard academic success as vital and work very hard to ensure that all children fulfil their true potential. We have high expectations from our students, we expect hard work from each person and are rarely let down.
Ashmole Academy is also a caring school. We aim to create an environment of tolerance and respect where the aspirations and responsibilities of individuals are emphasised. We expect our students to show care and the utmost respect for both staff and students alike.
Close co-operation between home and the school is essential if our young people are to gain the maximum benefit from their schooling. The school's strong pastoral support system enables us to develop effective home-school relationships that are beneficial to the student concerned.
Education is about preparing young people for their future. Our students leave school to go to University, College or to start a career in their chosen field of employment. To assist in the preparation for that future career, the school has an extensive Sixth Form provision covering a wide range of courses, careers facilities and a well proven system for helping our young people with their University or College applications.
