Ashington High School is committed to developing our students into confident and responsible young adults. We cater for students looking to study a Level 3 pathway, whether A Levels or BTECs, challenging them to achieve their potential through high-quality teaching, positive learning experiences, support, guidance and a wide variety of opportunities.
The wellbeing of our students is crucial. We appreciate that the pressures of Post-16 study can be high, at a time when students often desire more freedom. As a result, we have developed a varied, flexible support structure to meet the demands placed on our students.A strong pastoral team is on hand to help students prepare for the transition from Year 11 to Post-16, backed up by systems that allow us to provide tailored support. Academic staff are assisted by a team of careers, health and academic specialists, who provide the depth of knowledge necessary to support good decisions.
The vast majority of our Year 13 students progress to university or advanced level apprenticeships with local, regional and national employers. The strength of examination results opens up these life choices to our students.
