Welcome from Our Head Teacher


Thank you for your interest in our school. Ashton St. Peter’s is a small church school situated on the West side of Dunstable. When choosing a school for your child, it is important to make an informed decision, based on the needs of your child and family.

Here at Ashton St. Peter’s, our Christian ethos and values permeate the curriculum and all that we do. We have dedicated staff who are passionate in providing all children with new and exciting learning opportunities through which they can learn and achieve well.

We encourage our children to be enthusiastic, independent learners. They have opportunities to work individually, in pairs or in groups, learning important skills such as listening, co-operating, negotiating and sharing with each other.

We provide an exciting ‘Creative Curriculum’ within which your child will flourish and learn. In the mornings children participate in English (reading and writing) and Mathematical activities and our standards in these core subjects, at the end of Year 2 (Key Stage 1) are above National expectations. At the end of Year 6 (Key Stage 2) standards are above National Averages. (2015/2016)

Children participate in a range of activities outside of the classroom too. For example, swimming, visits to the  library, the Grove theatre and half termly to the Priory Church for worship. Children in Year 4 have the opportunity to stay for 3 days at Dell Farm and in Year 5 and Year 6 children enjoy a week long residential trip to France! All these opportunities provide exciting experiences which enhance learning and build happy memories!

I warmly invite you to visit our school, meet our children and staff and see for yourself how much fun learning can be! To make an appointment please contact the school office on 01582 663410.

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Mrs. Shirley McGinty
