Subject departments


We have high expectations of our pupils and our highly individualised teaching, delivered by specialist staff, helps ensure that children achieve the very best of their potential.

At Ashdown House School, we maintain an ethos where it is not only acceptable to be bright and enthusiastic, it is desirable. All children are encouraged to be independent learners and are offered support and extension opportunities to stimulate and further enrich learning wherever possible.

We provide opportunities for all pupils to work with like-minded peers, for example through grouping within a mixed-ability class. All achievements are recognised through whole-school or section assemblies. In this section, find out more about our extensive academic curriculum.
