Activities and Events at Ashbourne

Ashbourne organises an exciting programme of events, activities, trips and clubs to suit many tastes and which offer our students fantastic opportunities to discover new ideas, share their creativity, develop skills, have fun and make great friends along the way.

The Ashbourne Revue is one of the highlights of the year where students, and staff, across the college get the chance to showcase their creative talents. Other popular activities include the Creative Arts Evening, the European Trip,  Ashbourne Allstars Football Team, staff-versus-students Go Karting and our Critical Theory Seminars.

We also run events and activities to help support our students’ academically throughout the year with subject clinics and careers events, and entry into internal and national competitions. Many of the clubs we offer, such as Critical Theory, Astro-particle Physics and Computing provide our students with the opportunity to explore new topics and ideas beyond their A level programme of study.

Due to COVID-19 we are unable to run all events and clubs this year; please refer to the schedule to find out what is taking place.

Why Choose Ashbourne College?
StudentsParentsTeachers
Ashbourne has provided me with the platform, the time and the space to grow intellectually. We are encouraged to read widely and since Ashbourne offers extra curricular critical theory, I have found my subjects being independently stimulated and motivated by cross disciplinary links. Aside from academic growth, Ashbourne has offered me a chance to feel a part of something. The opportunity to be the co-editor of Ashbourne Identity, the college’s student magazine, has given me a sense of responsibility, creative freedom and pride toward Ashbourne’s diversity. From Ashbourne’s Christmas Revue to its annual European trip, the college’s nurturing and collaborative atmosphere will remain a highlight of my time at Ashbourne

If I had to describe Ashbourne in three words it would be welcoming, intimate, and fun. I have never met such an eclectic group of people who all get on and are integrated with each other so well. It’s a great opportunity to get the grades that you want alongside gaining confidence and maturity
