The new Ashby Hastings school will be holding a virtual 'Welcome' meeting for prospective parents and the local community later this month.

At this meeting, the ambition, ethos and vision of the school will be outlined and there will be an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions.

The meeting is on February 24 at 6.30pm, and you can register by emailing

[email protected], or alternatively, further details can be found on the school's website

You will receive an invite via email a day before the virtual meeting takes place.

Further meetings, including induction events for new pupils, are planned in the summer.

The primary school opens in the Autumn Term this year and it has made its first appointment in Rachel Mckeown, who will be the Head of School and will work alongside Matthew Brookes, the Executive Head, in establishing high quality provision for Ashby Hastings.

Rachel is currently a senior teacher within the Symphony Learning Trust and is relishing the opportunity to start her work for Ashby Hastings.

She said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for me to bring high quality education to a brand new school for Ashby. We are determined to ensure Ashby Hastings is at the very centre of the local community and building links with our neighbours is of paramount importance to us all."
