About The School
Ashgate Croft School is an Area Special School within Derbyshire Local Authority, with 138 pupils currently on role (YR-Y14), ranging widely in cognitive and physical ability and needs.
The majority of pupils have severe learning difficulties and would have difficulty coping in a mainstream school. Some of our pupils have profound and multiple learning difficulties, with an increasing number on the autism spectrum. A few pupils have moderate learning difficulties.
Class sizes range from 6-12 pupils. Smaller class sizes have become an essential feature of the education for some pupils with autism and/or extremely challenging behaviour.
Stay up-to-date with school news. The summer term newsletter is now available on the website.
Our School Council is an important part of our school. They make decisions and work hard to help improve things. Find out more about this year's councillors and the areas we're aiming to improve.
