Ashlyns School

Secondary Dacorum Borough



Ashlyns is a popular and oversubscribed school in the historic market town of Berkhamsted. Set in magnificent grounds, the school blends beautiful listed buildings with modern and exciting development.  It has undergone significant refurbishment in recent years with continuing improvements in progress as we expanded to eight forms of entry in September 2017.  

The school was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2018 and is focused on rapid improvement in results with the aspiration to be rated ‘Outstanding’ at our next inspection. We would encourage applicants to read the report, which can be found on the school website (

Ashlyns is a thriving school with a fascinating and rich heritage. Originally established to provide for the most vulnerable in society, the school continues to emphasise the traditional values of respect, honesty, and hard work. These values, combined with high expectations, innovation, and creativity, mean that Ashlyns is a school that encourages students to develop and make the most of their abilities and interests.
