Welcome to De Aston School

Whether you live 100 metres from the school or, as some of our Boarding families do, 7,000 miles from the school, there can be no more challenging decision than choosing a school that is right for your son or daughter. De Aston offers a wide range of young people an excellent, well-rounded educational experience that promotes modern British values. Though designated a broadly Christian school, we are open to families of every faith and those of no faith.

De Aston School challenges all its students to achieve their personal best, in order that their success in school will prepare them for success in later life

Our students come to school to…

  • Be safe, achieve and enjoy being here, following a curriculum that addresses individual needs;
  • Make progress towards their social, moral and spiritual potential and so become good citizens of the twenty-first century;
  • Develop a commitment to learning which will stay with them throughout life;
  • Be equipped to take their place in the worlds of work and education;
  • Learn the importance of respecting others, themselves and the environment.

Careers Fair – Thursday, 23rd February, 2017

Thursday, 23rd February, 2017 there will be a Careers Fair held at the school. All students will have opportunity to attend during the school day at allocated time periods, with the opportunity of browsing the exhibitors during the lunchtime period.

At this time we are expecting approx. 20 exhibitors ranging from Universities, Apprenticeship opportunities, employers such as EDF Energy, West Lindsey District Council, Armed Services, HMRC, BAE, National Health Service and others. There will also be opportunities to look at youth support through sport, counselling and National Citizen Service.

Student Destinations Summary

  • Student destinations refers to the placement or provision taken up by students at the end of Y11, 12 or 13
  • For a student to have a ‘sustained destination’ they must remain in their chosen placement or provision from October until March
  • The latest publicly available data on 16-19 study programmes (2012/13) inspection dashboard indicates that 9% of Y13 leavers did not sustain their destinations which is in-line with the national figure.  School held data indicates in 2014 this was 6.7%, in 2015 6.1% and predictions for 2016 are 6.5% - well below the expected national figure.
  • School held data on % Y13 Disadvantaged Students NOT Sustaining Destination: 2014 = 0%, 2015 = 9%, 2016 = 6%
  • Latest publically available data (2012/13) on 16 year olds show that the proportion who did not sustain their destinations was 9%, slightly above the national.  School held data indicates in 2014 this was 3.7%, in 2015 3.6% and predictions for 2016 are 3.5% - well below the expected national figure
  • School held data on % Y11 Disadvantaged Students NOT Sustaining Destination: 2014 = 6%, 2015 = 5%, 2016 = 9%
