Situated in the grounds of Ashton Park Secondary School, the sports centre is a dual use facility meaning that during the school day the sports facilities are used by the school pupils. After school hours, weekends and school holidays the sports facilities are available for community use.
The sports centre has it’s own fitness suite which is open for community use at all times during opening hours, no restrictions apply during school hours.
Ashton Park Sports Centre is a self sustaining business, it relies purely on income generated by community use therefore we strongly encourage and aim to achieve as much local community use as possible to keep us sustainable and in operation.
We aim to meet the needs of the community to increase participation and offer a varied programme of activities with professional qualified staff at hand as stated in our mission statement.
The Rock Project is the UK & Ireland’s premier school for children’s contemporary music tuition. We offer group lessons in electric guitar, bass guitar, drums and vocals and the opportunity for young people aged 7-18 years old to put their musical skills into practice by performing regularly each week as part of a band.
