The 21-year-old will link up with The Kassam Stadium side in a bid to gain first-team experience having spent time on loan at Notts County last season.
After training with his new team-mates on Friday, the stopper could be in contention for a starting berth alongside Andy Crosby and Matt Bound for Saturday's opening League game against Lincoln on Saturday.
"I came down yesterday and trained with the lads," Ashton told the club's official website.
"I'm usually a centre back but I have played at full back as well. I hope I'll get a few games in the middle here though.
"I enjoyed my loan at Notts County last season because it was good to get away and play first team football.
"I hope I can have a good spell here as well and who knows what might happen after that."
