Ashford Central School is a K-10 Central School. Students studying for their Higher School Certificate (HSC) usually attend either Macintyre High School or Inverell High School in Inverell.

The daily bus trip to Inverell means our senior students spend in excess of two hours per day on a bus to travel the 116 kilometre round trip. Students at Ashford are drawn from the township of Ashford and the surrounding district. Some students travel a considerable distance to school by bus.

At Ashford Central School we are committed to the provision of a comprehensive, quality education program, the equal of any in the state. We achieve this through quality teaching and assessment practices, the provision of a broad balanced curriculum, an emphasis on literacy and numeracy from Kindergarten to Year 10, comprehensive student welfare structures and effective use of technology.
