Ethos and Aims

Empowering young minds through respect and nurture.

We believe that the achievement of academic success and the nurturing of self-confidence and positive attitudes to life and learning lay essential foundations for a child’s future.

Our staff encourage children to achieve highly across a broad spectrum of learning experiences. Creative, artistic, social and sporting activities are promoted right from the start and this ensures that individual talents and abilities are quickly recognised and nurtured.

We have high expectations of our children and expect them to give of their best at all times. We have listed our vision and values below.


To instil in our children; a keen curiosity for learning, the confidence to be creative, innovative thinking skills, and respect for themselves, others and the wider world. To follow a nurturing ethos and build positive family partnerships which promote a happy and adventurous childhood.


Our values are at the centre of the Ashbridge experience, and wholly based on what we believe children need to thrive. Whether a child is 3 months old or 11 years old, our values remain the same with the implementation of them tailored to each child’s needs, age and stage of development.
