School Premises

Ashill School (established in 1842) serves the immediate village and neighbouring hamlets but ‘open enrolment’ has attracted children from other areas. Ashill is a quiet, pretty village and received a special commendation in the Somerset Village of the Year Competition for 1997.  Ashill School is a co-educational Community County Primary day school for children aged 4-11.  The school is not affiliated to any religious denomination; however, we do have close links with St Mary’s Church which is situated next to the school.

Part of our playing fields

The site provision includes one large permanent classroom and an ‘Elliot’ classroom detached from the main building.  We have no purpose built school hall but benefit from using the well-kept village hall for certain activities. A new oil heating system was installed in the main school in 2008.

The school has very attractive grounds and surroundings and full provision for sports activities are provided by the large playing field and purpose-built floodlit all weather pitch.

Other areas include an excellent library, administration area, a redeveloped conservation area, two hard-surfaced playground areas, a Foundation stage covered play area, a new garden themed adventure area with creative play equipment, picnic area and a Community room.  A staffroom and food technology area provides state of the art cooking facilities. Ashill's very popular preschool and toddlers’ group is on site.

There are ten student computers in the school (ratio 1:4), all with access to the Internet.  We also have  two Smartboards, one for each class, for interactive learning.  Each curriculum area is well stocked with a wide range of resources and equipment to meet the needs of the children and demands of the National Curriculum.  Our facilities are impressive yet we continually strive to improve them further.
