Ashgrove School, Bromley

Welcome to Ashgrove

A co-educational school for children aged 3 - 11 years.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to our school which was founded in 1986. It offers an excellent social and cultural mix and provides a first class education in a caring, well-disciplined and happy environment.

Ashgrove is a small school with a huge vision. Step inside and see for yourself.

Dr. Patricia Ash, Principal and Founder.


Ashgrove is a relatively new school for boys and girls aged between three and eleven years which opened in September 1986 with thirteen pupils. The success of the school was quite remarkable: within two years there were six full classes and a long waiting list. Ashgrove had already established itself as a school which strives for excellence, both academically and socially. Many children who have since left Ashgrove now attend some of the most competitive secondary schools.

There is a positive approach to education by praising a child's efforts and hard work. Ranking is totally discouraged in favour of encouraging children to make full use of their natural abilities and to become worthwhile members of society. Since great importance is attached to the development of a child's character, individuality, initiative and self-confidence are actively encouraged.

Unllike other schools, subject specialism across the whole curriculum at both infant and junior levels is seen as essential. Children experience a variety of well-motivated teachers, expert in their own subject areas, which they present in a style both individual and stimulating.  As a result children enjoy learning and gain in confidence.

Early emphasis is placed on the basic skills to include the acquisition and practice of reading, writing and number work. Later the emphasis is on proficiency in essay work, comprehension, spelling, grammar and punctuation. Pupils are given a thorough knowledge of and understanding of basic mathematical concepts rather than rote learning.

The curriculum which is broad and well-balanced includes art, craft, design and technology, French, humanities, information technology and computer programming (where children write their own programs) music, physical education and science. Children play the recorder and various percussion instruments as well as being taught to read music. Workshops are organised during the school holidays giving children the ooportunity to experiment with different instruments. . Individual tuition for specific instruments can often be arranged.

Much of the sport takes place at Bromley Cricket Club's beautiful 8 acre site ( situated just a few minutes walk across the road from school offering excellent facilities for cricket, football, hockey, netball, rounders, squash and tennis.

Other activities include kwik cricket and ball related games which take place at the Bromley Pavilion and health related fitness which takes place at school.

Testing is used to monitor progress and familiarise children with taking examinations. This is carried out every year in both the spring and summer terms from the age of seven years in English, mathematics, verbal and non-verbal reasoning.



  • An informal and friendly organisation where all parents are automatically members.

  • It fosters relationships between staff, parents and others associated with the school.
