Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to the Ashton School website.  Please feel free to visit the site to find our more about our ethos, mission, traditions, history, students achievements and latest news.  Enjoy your visit!

In August 2014 our building project nears completion and much progress has been made since we first entered the new building just one year ago.  The landscaping has been completed and in recent months two pieces of artwork have been installed.front of school

“Unfurl” was designed by past pupil Alex Pentek.  The second piece of artwork, installed more recently, was designed by artists Liam Lavery and Helen Horgan in response to suggestions made by students. The second piece of artwork has been mounted on the Sports Hall wall and feature elements of our school crest and symbols representing our school traditions.

Mr. Landen, Principal, congratulates Rachel Palmer on her excellent Leaving Certificate results. Rachel’s great-uncle’s name (R. Young) is listed in the Great War memorial plaque in the background.

Wednesday, 13th August, was another great day in the history of Ashton – a day when all knew and recognised the pride we have in our students when we see them achieve. Teachers and parents alike celebrated the success of the Class of 2014 on the day they received their Leaving Certificate results.

Alice Walsh and Eoin Conway achieved our top scores for 2014.  We wish Alice, Eoin and all their classmates every success as they pursue their chosen careers.
