Welcome to the website for The Abbey School. I am confident that you will find it informative and enjoyable to explore. We hope that the website will provide you with an insight into the high quality education that your child can expect to receive at The Abbey School.
The Abbey School is a mixed secondary school with a thriving population of over 1000 students. We believe that school should be a place where young people can discover and develop their own individual talents. This means an education that is structured around the individual strengths and needs of each child.
At the end of their time with us we aim for all our young people to leave the school confident, happy and well equipped to take their place in employment or further education. We are particularly proud of the support structures that exist within the school which we continually enhance. Developing ‘well rounded’ individuals who possess a strong sense of responsibility for both the school and the wider community is important to us. Our students require not only an excellent foundation in learning, but also attributes such as resilience, leadership, creativity and team-working skills.
When you visit our school I am sure that you will recognise not only the warm welcome of our students but also their enjoyment and passion for learning.
