Mr Lee McConaghie, Headteacher


Ashton on Mersey School is one of the most popular and oversubscribed schools in the region with a reputation for aspiration, endeavour and excellence. As Headteacher, I am proud to lead a team of teachers and support staff who truly believe that every pupil should achieve or exceed their potential. The school has an established and embedded ethos of setting high academic standards by carefully crafting a pupil-centered approach where individual needs are matched with a broad, ambitious and exciting curriculum. In addition, the school is passionate about providing rich and diverse opportunities in an environment designed to nurture lifelong learners and citizens who can thrive regionally, nationally and globally.

At Ashton on Mersey we are unwavering in our commitment to opening up a future of choice for our young people. This can be seen in every aspect of our work as we hold true to our motto: Believe Achieve and Succeed. I hope this website gives you a flavour of life at our school.
