Ashley Oliver-Catt
Head of School

I live with my partner, in Chichester and very much enjoy living within cycling distance of the beautiful beaches at West Wittering and the canal. During my spare time I enjoy catching up with friends and family, photography and going to the cinema or theatre. I also really enjoy relaxing on a hot sunny beach in the holidays…especially on a Greek Island!

I have had the privilege of being Head of School at Cliffdale Primary Academy, since September 2012. We have been on an incredible journey of improvement in that time and I am extremely proud of the many successes that we have had at Cliffdale, not least of which was our judgement of ‘Outstanding’ from Ofsted in November 2016.

I am constantly impressed by the amazing children at Cliffdale and genuinely enjoy watching them learn new skills every day, grow in confidence and develop as independent individuals. Each and every one of them comes into school with a smile on their face, ready to learn.

The staff at Cliffdale continually strive to ensure that our pupils reach their fullest potential, always thinking of new, creative and dynamic ways of presenting learning activities to the children. The combination of wonderful children and brilliant staff really does make Cliffdale such an exciting, vibrant and brilliant place to work ~ no two days are the same and I love it! If you haven’t been to see us yet, what are you waiting for?!
