A warm welcome from the Headteacher

Your child is the most important person to you and our school. If your child feels safe and happy, they will achieve. My mission as headteacher is to ensure that all students achieve their personal best.

At The Abbey School, a mixed secondary school with a thriving school population of over 1,000, we offer a first class education which is tailored to your child’s individual strengths and needs. We are very proud of our students and invest all that we have in making our students and staff the best that they can be. We continually strive for excellence and are ambitious in our plans to develop the school and its facilities within the Faversham community.

We believe in achievement: in educating the whole person, developing all the talents that your child may have. Our aim is to provide a seven-year journey to adulthood, equipping young adults to be confident, full of self-esteem and ready to take a lead part in the 21st century.

We will have high expectations of your child and we will work closely with you, as parents and carers, to achieve our common aim. Excellent attitude, appearance, attendance and punctuality are paramount to achieving good discipline and, therefore, academic success.

You can be assured that this is a forward-looking, vibrant school offering exciting opportunities where your child will flourish. We have a superb learning environment with excellent staff and a real sense of community in which all thrive.
