Ashcroft Technology Academy was described by the IB in their pre-authorisation visit as “one of the best world schools they have visited”: testimony indeed to the international ethos of the school and strong work ethic and international mindedness of our students. The IB Diploma Programme has added a vibrant dimension to our curriculum and IB students certainly enrich the lives of others as well as their own by attending such a high performing school. This year saw record breaking results in the Sixth Form at Ashcroft and we are particularly pleased with the increase in the number of top grades with 43% of our students securing places at Russell Group universities including Oxbridge. This percentage was even higher for our IB students, with nearly all students gaining a place at a Russell Group university. We are now in our fifth IB year and can reflect on excellent achievement and move forward with confidence and ambition.
Students leave our Sixth Form articulate, confident and accomplished young adults who understand the importance of rigour and high standards. Underpinning our proven track record of success is a team of highly motivated and hard working staff who know students well and who are committed to supporting students to succeed. Ashcroft Technology Academy Sixth Form provides students with an outstanding education through academic challenge, engaging and innovative teaching and extensive extra-curricular and super-curricular programmes. The outstanding achievements of the IB Diploma Programme make a valuable and unique contribution to the identity of Ashcroft Technology Academy, now an outstanding IB World School. We are very proud of our students’ achievements and we hope to welcome you to our Sixth Form next academic year.
