The Ashcroft Difference
The Ashcroft Difference is about the learning experience, the Ashcroft Vision and the technology rich, supportive environment. The distinctive advantages of both school education and college culture combine to develop ambitious, responsive, principled, caring and internationally minded young people. We are investing in the future success of our students by creating an excellent educational resource. We have made a strong commitment to our students by:
- Investing in new facilities
- Maintaining a strong traditional A level curriculum
- Implementing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)
- Encouraging creativity and breadth through our BTEC National provision in Music and Performing Arts
- Providing an extensive and inclusive super-curriculum
This unique combination of investment in young people in the widest context creates a compelling point of differentiation for students at this pivotal time in your life. These are just some quotes from Ashcroft Alumni Students:
"I don’t regard Year 12 as a year group, it’s more like a group of friends I’ve had for six years. The new students who’ve joined this year have settled in really well, it feels like I’ve known them for ages."

"I was always pushed to achieve my goals at ATA and firmly believe that I would not be where I am today without the guidance and support offered by the teaching staff."
Ailis is now a graduate English Literature & Linguistics at Queen Mary’s, University of London
"ATA helped me to nurture my creative interests and provided a great foundation for my studies pre-university. The facilities we benefited from were unrivalled elsewhere, and the encouragement I received from teachers played a large part in my decision to apply for Cambridge."
Alice has now graduated with a Starred First from Cambridge, and a multi-award winning dissertation. She assists our Oxbridge applicants, and now manages Content and Partnerships for a fast-growing start-up.
