Ashfield caters for children between the ages of 7 and 11 years. Most of the children transfer directly from our feeder school, Merry Hill Infant & Nursery School.

During the Junior Years we encourage the children to become more independent learners. To that end, all children at Ashfield learn to use Six Hats Thinking. These Thinking skills have a number of important benefits for learning: children learn to think independently; they learn to consider things from different perspectives; and thinking skills contribute to effective problem-solving and decision-making in all aspects of life, preparing them well for the next stage in their education.
