How to find Ashton Park School

Ashton Park school is located just off the A370 at Ashton Gate – turn left onto Blackmoors lane and the school is signposted on your right. After entering the school, turn left just before the sign shown below, onto the track leading under the trees (don’t continue onto the mini roundabout or into the main car park) continue until you see the Ashton Gate building on your left – there is then a car park on your right, just in front of the school hall where the grading is being held.

Turn left just in front of this sign!
