A warm welcome from the Head of School, 

Kate Webster

Located in Chelsea, West London, Ashburnham is a happy, friendly school where children achieve academic excellence. I am immensely proud to be the Head of School, working with a talented and committed team of leaders, teachers and support staff. We are one of four schools in the Fox Federation and I work closely alongside Paul Cotter, the Executive Headteacher of the Fox Federation, and the rest of the Federation Leadership Team.

Ashburnham is a one form entry school, with up to thirty children in each year group. We have an on site Nursery for 3 and 4 year olds. Our Nursery is completely self-contained, but being located just across the playground, the children benefit from joining in with aspects of ‘big school’ life throughout the year. Please click to see our ‘admissions’ page which has more information on our Nursery and Reception classes – the most common admission year groups.

We offer a modern, spacious, well-resourced learning environment which supports children’s development. When walking around the school, visitors always comment on how purposeful, calm and nurturing the atmosphere is. We are also lucky enough to have the largest playground in the borough, fully equipped with a huge climbing frame, a tree house, a reading shed and two sports pitches, so there is plenty of space for children to play and socialise during break times.

Our school embodies strong values which underpin all we do: curiosity, collaboration, kindness, inclusion, respect and resilience. We have high expectations of all our children, both academically and socially and aim for all children to meet these expectations through our engaging, exciting curriculum, which is complimented by a rich program of enriching experiences, community events, trips, workshops and clubs. We are passionate about ensuring that all children leave Ashburnham as well-rounded, confident and articulate young people, having achieved excellent results and who are fully prepared to succeed in their next stage of education.

I greatly value the partnership I have with parents and carers and I believe that working together is the best way to ensure children develop a lifelong love of learning so they can achieve their absolute potential.

I hold school tours throughout the year and I would very much welcome the opportunity to meet you and show you around our lovely school in person.
