Head of School’s welcome

Ashburnham Community School is an outstanding primary school located in Chelsea London.  Ashburnham is a happy, friendly school where children achieve academic excellence. I am immensely proud to be the Head of School, leading an enthusiastic and committed team of teachers and support staff. I work alongside Paul Cotter who is the Executive Headteacher, working across Ashburnham Community School and Fox School, an outstanding primary school in Notting Hill, London.  Please refer to the speech Sir Michael Wilshaw delivered as Ashburnham Community School was mentioned as example of excellence: https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/speech-at-the-future-of-education-inspection-launch

Ashburnham is a one form entry community school, with up to thirty children in each year group; we also have a Nursery school. In total there are 220 children aged between three and 11 years old at the school.

We offer a spacious, open learning environment which both encourages and supports children’s development. The school is based on one level which means that a close, friendly atmosphere is fostered amongst staff and children. We are also lucky enough to have one of the largest playgrounds in the borough so there is plenty of space for children to play.

This outstanding school embodies strong values which are underpinned in all we do; respect, honesty perseverance, kindness, and collaboration. We have high expectations of all our children, both academically and socially. This is achieved by the engaging, exciting curriculum which is complimented with a rich program of trips and workshops. We are passionate about ensuring that all children who leave Ashburnham are well rounded and polite children who are achieving excellent results and fully prepared to succeed in their next stage of education.

I greatly value the partnership I have with parents and I believe that working together is the best way to ensure your child develops a lifelong love of learning so she or he can flourish.

I hold school tours throughout the year and encourage you to come along and have a look for yourself.

I look forward to meeting you.

Kind regards

Ben McMullen

Head of School
