Ashgate Croft is the largest of 10 special schools in Derbyshire and as such, we offer a full range of opportunities for children and students with special needs aged from 4 – 19 years. We believe that education for our pupils includes not only the subjects of the National Curriculum, but, just as importantly, life skills and social skills. We aim, therefore, to teach pupils the skills
y for self-care and living that others may take for granted. We want all our pupils to eventually leave school to become successful members of the wider community, hence our school motto is “Building Skills for Life”.
