Ashleigh Primary School is a Foundation school which caters for children from Reception to Year Six. We have been serving the Darwen area for a hundred years.

We are very proud of our school with its vibrant and stimulating learning environment. We are determined to make every child's life here a rich and rewarding experience so they leave with a love of learning, high self-esteem, pride in their success and ready to enjoy the challenges in life.

Each child is valued and their unique qualities are recognised, nurtured and celebrated.

The relationships we develop with our children, their families, our community and the wider world, enable us to create a warm, caring, happy ethos where EVERYONE is welcome.

Take the time to come and visit us. We will only be too pleased to show you round and answer your questions. Please telephone 01254 703171 to make an appointment.

If you are already a parent of one of our children, stop by for a chat, I am always on the playground in the mornings and usually after school on a Friday. I am always available to any parent who would like to speak to me personally, and in the unlikely event I was out of school, the office would be happy to  make an appointment for you at the earliest possible time.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

I look forward to meeting you.


Mr. I. Matthews
