A Message from the Head Boy and Head Girl

As Head Girl and Head Boy we have put together a few ideas as to why we feel you would benefit from joining us at Ashton on Mersey School.


Moving to a new school can be an anxious time, particularly because you are going from being the oldest in primary school to the youngest in secondary school. However, there is nothing to worry about. Ashton on Mersey welcomes new pupils warmly and offers many exciting opportunities in order for pupils’ confidence to grow. To benefit from all the opportunities, it is important to get involved in all aspects of school life and take advantage of all that is on offer.

Being at Ashton you will gain a lot more independence, with things such as organising your time to complete work in class and also homework projects that you will be given to complete in your own time.

There will be many opportunities to meet new people and experience new things, for example sliding down the slopes skiing in Austria or going back in time and walking the streets where Jack the Ripper roamed with the History trip.

As you progress through the school there are opportunities to become ‘Leaders’ and take part in organising events for other years or primary school pupils.

Ashton is a large team and wants everybody to be part of that team. The opportunities are there for you to be a part of this fantastic school, we hope you make the most of them!

‘An extensive range of enrichment activities in sport and the arts add significantly to students’ positive attitudes to school, their outstanding personal development and to the excellence of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.’
