Ashwell’s ethos is inspired by Cardinal Newman’s idea of a university – a broad, well-rounded education, which teaches students “to think and to reason and to compare and to discriminate and to analyse.”


We offer you the environment and support you need to make the most of your studies, and in addition we organise a wide range of enrichment activities – from socials and celebrations to talks, films, concerts, cultural evenings and excursions, as well as spiritual activities.
