Trust launches partnership with Ashton Park

Bristol City Community Trust is delighted to announce that it will partner Ashton Park School in the 2017/18 academic year.

Supporting the Trust’s Level 3 provision, the partnership will see students study a proportion of their weekly lessons at Ashton Park School, with the remainder being held at Ashton Gate Stadium.

Speaking of the partnership, Community Trust’s head of education Chris Stenner said: “The staff and students at the Trust are really proud of this partnership.

“It will not only enhance the vocational provision being offered at Ashton Park but also increase the opportunities available for young people to progress into further education.

“Furthermore, it will also provide young people in the South Bristol area the chance to study in an inspirational learning environment, giving them the best chance to leave with the skills that allow them to go on to university, apprenticeships or jobs.”

“We are delighted to announce our partnership with the Community Trust, and are very proud to be to be establishing a relationship that we believe will build success for the future for all young people in Bristol,” Ashton Park’s headteacher Nick John commented.

“We see this as a natural evolution and one of the key things we have been working on together is to address the needs and opportunities for young people in South Bristol, which doesn’t have the high quality provision our young people need and deserve.”

“It is going to be an incredibly exciting project,” said Ashton Park’s associate headteacher Steve Mosley.

“At Ashton Park School, we pride ourselves on our good quality A-Level provision, but we are always looking to develop vocational provision in South Bristol.

“We already know the Trust excel in the work they do at Level 3. The number of young people they take through their course and into university is fantastic and we hope to share our expertise with them, but we look forward to learning a lot from their excellent practice.”
