What says..

A veritable rabbit warren. ‘We get given maps in year 7 and it took me about two weeks to find my way around,’ commented our guide. One of the tidiest, best-kept schools we have visited. Plenty of silverware on show in reception area.  Pleased to note that there is sport for all; the enthusiastic but less talented get chance to play in teams as well.  Lots of lunch time practice sessions. Lots of careers advice, encouragingly, university not being the only option. School recently awarded…

What the school says...

Whether you live 100 metres from the school or, as some of our Boarding families do, 7,000 miles from the school, there can be no more challenging decision than choosing a school that is right for your son or daughter. De Aston offers a wide range of young people an excellent, well-rounded educational experience that promotes modern British values and provides young people aged 11-19 with academic and vocational opportunities. Though designated a broadly Christian school, we are open to families of every faith and those of no faith. De Aston School challenges all its students to achieve their personal best, in order that their success in school will prepare them for success in later life.

At De Aston, we are fortunate to have exceptional facilities, set in extensive and secure rural grounds. Our grounds are perhaps the most beautiful in Lincolnshire and provide an excellent setting for the wide range of extra-curricular sports that occur here. We are an historic school, founded in 1863, that offers young people the very best in 21st century education. Young people at De Aston have everything they need to enjoy school life. Ofsted have described the leadership and management of the school, as well as the achievement and behaviour of our students as ‘outstanding’.

Head

Academic matters

Unwilling to disclose exam results, though some 60 per cent got 4-9 in both English and maths GCSE in 2017; A level A*-B grades usually in the high 30s, with an average grade of C- in 2017. They are on top of the pupils, offering support for all. Gifted and talented spotted in year 7 and nurtured throughout their time at the school. Lunch time sessions offered to explore subjects in more detail, plus a broader church such as chess, discussion and quizzes. G&Ts also help with the younger years with learning support. The less able are monitored constantly and ‘pulled along,’ to quote one parent. Learning support very effective, with lots of extra tutoring available. We spotted quite a...
