Ofsted school description
Ashfield Comprehensive is a popular school that is oversubscribed. The school is much larger than most secondary schools. The majority of students are of White British backgrounds. The remaining minority come from a small range of different ethnic backgrounds. Students' attainment on entry is broadly average. The percentage of students who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities, including those who have a statement of special educational needs, is below the national average. Although there is deprivation locally, the overall socio-economic background is average. The proportion of students eligible for free school meals reflects this, and is broadly in line with the national average. The school gained specialist technology school status in 1998, to which it added languages and vocational specialisms in December 2006. It received designation as a Training School in 2004.
