Ashgrove has a well-established reputation as a school where the children and staff enjoy excellent relationships based on respect, care and learning. We are proud of an ethos that combines both tradition and innovation.
We believe that all children are born with a natural curiosity and the ability to learn. Each child has much to offer. Our challenge in Ashgrove Primary is to give children the confidence, skills and experiences that will inspire them to excellence and to develop their individual abilities with breadth and imagination. We present pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum in accordance with the Education Reform (NI) Order and expect children to leave Ashgrove, confident in the skills and knowledge that they have gained and in their ability to make the most of life's opportunities.
The school consists of eleven classrooms; a central hall used for PE, assemblies and concerts; a separate dining hall and a variety of ancillary rooms and stores. Classrooms are in groups of three and four and enclose practical tiled areas with cloakrooms and toilet facilities. We have been provided with four mobile classrooms to facilitate our increased enrolment and a permanent library.
Ashgrove occupies an attractive site on the Ashgrove Road with expansive grounds providing excellent opportunities for sports and studies. The school has its own football pitch, which proves popular with boys and girls alike.
