Set in magnificent grounds, the school has undergone significant refurbishment in recent years with continuing improvements in progress as we expanded to eight forms of entry in September 2017.

This is an exciting time to join our school and make your impression as we continue to develop and build on our success. The school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2018 and is focused on rapid improvement in results with the aspiration to be rated ‘Outstanding’ at our next inspection. We would encourage applicants to read the report, which can be found on the school website (www.ashlyns.herts.sch.uk).
