About Ashlawn School
Our OFSTED inspection report, in October 2003, said that "pupils at Ashlawn are doing better than most schools nationally ...Teaching is good with a high number of very good and excellent lessons"
In 2002 our examination results won Ashlawn a schools achievement award, and in 2003 results were even better.
Ashlawn is not only about results, however. We want our students to be safe, happy and confident as well as successful. Ashlawn works hard and successfully at getting relationships right. We believe that students and staff alike do better when relationships are warm and people feel valued.
Ashlawn is a thriving, successful, diverse, friendly and purposeful school, where again, OFSTED said "There is a relentless pursuit of further improvement".
Ashlawn is situated two miles from Rugby town centre on the edge of open countryside. We are a bilateral school, offering places to students of all abilities. We attract students from Rugby and the surrounding area. The school currently has 1658 students on roll, 110 teachers and an active support staff. There are 245 students in the Sixth Form following a variety of one and two year courses. In addition there is full access to the school and the curriculum for students with physical disabilities.
Ashlawn is a warm, happy school. Our outstanding facilities and resources complement a positive, purposeful atmosphere in which everyone works hard and with pride. Our science laboratories utilise the latest state-of-the-art equipment, while computers and Information Communication Technology enjoy a high profile throughout the school.
We are constantly updating our hardware and software within the five networked IT suites. Integrated Learning Systems, the Internet and Computer-Assisted Design are used as additional learning tools.
