At the heart of The Abbey community lies a shared enthusiasm for lifelong learning, an intellectual curiosity and spirit of discovery which our dedicated teachers encourage at every stage of your daughter’s educational journey. We are committed to helping every girl discover her talents and passions and to equipping her with the skills she will need to develop those interests into an enjoyable and meaningful future.
The spirit of community at The Abbey is one of its defining features. Founded on a Church of England tradition the school welcomes girls of all faiths and none to a community that emphasises values of spiritual awareness, understanding and respect for others. We celebrate achievement and individuality, providing a diverse range of experiences that encourages girls to understand the value of working together and recognising the talents and contributions of their peers. This grass-roots pastoral system is supported by caring staff with deep expertise in girls’ education. The Abbey Community extends far beyond the walls of the school with the forging of lifelong friendships that are valued by all Abbey Alumnae.
The Abbey’s energetic and forward-looking ethos has seen the school continuously developing to provide outstanding facilities that support a curriculum that emphasises depth as well as breadth. This progressive approach is far from restricted to bricks and mortar, however, as our true capital lies in the innovative teaching and learning programmes which, combined with the staff's genuine passion for their subjects, ensure that our girls achieve outstanding academic results.
The Abbey creates free thinking, confident young women who go into the world ready to make their mark.
The Abbey's highly experienced Council of Governors operates under a strategic vision to ensure that the school retains and builds on its reputation for leadership and innovation in education.
