Headmaster’s Message

From the Headmaster . . .

Thank you for visiting our website. As you peruse these pages I hope you gather a sense of the excitement and joy our school community experiences each day working alongside young people, leading and encouraging their growth and development, challenging them with the joy of learning, celebrating their achievements and encouraging them through disappointments, building their character and confidence.
At Ascot, we provide a school where you and your child are welcomed and known, where children are challenged, supported, celebrated and nurtured. They are taught how to learn and we expect them to progress as they follow a rigorous academic programme in English and Japanese. We seek to develop also those qualities of character and aptitude which will prepare them for life in this century – the ability to work singly and in cooperation, the ability to think broadly and deeply, the ability to inquire, the ability to apply learning, the ability to be emotionally intelligent.
We welcome you to our new campus in Kobe – Kita, to meet with us and to see what we are about. Do please visit!
We will not be found wanting in our daily endeavour to provide an outstanding, student-centred and relevant education for your child.
Martin Donnellan
