Welcome to Ashley Road School


Ashley Road School is situated in the west end of Aberdeen City.  It is one of five primary schools within the area of Aberdeen Grammar School.  The school provides high quality learning experiences for children from Nursery to Primary 7.

wpcc656f28_06At Ashley Road School we aim to create a challenging and supportive learning environment in which all children can enjoy and gain as much as possible from their nursery/primary school years. We endeavour to foster an interest in lifelong learning and prepare the children well for the future. We are committed to providing a first class education for all of our children. We work closely with parents and other agencies to provide the best learning experiences for each child.  We want all of our children to be successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.   We hope you find the information you are looking for in the website. We are always happy to speak to parents/carers and discuss in greater detail any questions they may have about our school.
