Our curriculum is enriched by specialist subject teachers whose expert knowledge of and passion for their subjects is infectious and inspires our pupils’ learning. Small class sizes, differentiated lessons and sets in English and Mathematics for our older pupils, ensure that our pupils are appropriately challenged and make exceptional progress.

We continually review our curriculum in order to provide the best possible preparation for Common Entrance and Scholarships, with equal emphasis on the importance of the life and personal skills that children acquire along the way. As a result, we are hugely proud not only of the range of outstanding senior schools that our children join after leaving Ashdown House, but also of the wealth of scholarships and awards they win in the process. Throughout the year, we conduct a range of assessments to measure and monitor each child’s attainment and ability. The results of these assessments are shared and discussed with parents through our termly reports, parents' evenings, and, importantly, through the regular, informal contact that we have with Ashdown families.
