Ashbury is served by an excellent Primary School catering for around 65 pupils from 4 to 11 years of age; the School’s motto is “We Care” which very much signifies the School’s ethos.

The School has a Partnership Foundation Stage Unit with a Pre-School which caters for children aged from two and a half to four.

The primary school capped a fantastic year in 2016 when OFSTED graded it a very good school, SIAMS graded it an outstanding school and the National results for progress from Key Stage 1 to the end of Key Stage 2 ranked it 2nd nationally.

A number of Secondary Schools in the area cater for older pupils.
