About Ashwell

Since 1962, we have welcomed young women of all faiths and backgrounds. The environment at Ashwell has at its heart, a strongly Christian ethos. Ashwell is unique, facilitating serious study as well as offering opportunities for cultural and personal enrichment, and fostering life-long friendships.

From our weekly pizza and beer nights and the cultural AshTalk presentation, to volunteering and film nights: we encourage each of our residents to set their studies in the larger context of a flourishing life in which they use their personal gifts in the service of others.
