52% of candidates scored 40 or more

87% of HL (higher level) grades are at 6 or 7

1 candidate scored a full 45 points

Welcome to The Abbey

The Abbey is a warm and welcoming community, with each student bringing her own unique talents, interests and character to build an environment that is diverse, inclusive and energetic. We celebrate growth and achievement in all its varied forms from the Nursery to the Sixth Form and on into adult life.

Over 130 years ago, The Abbey was founded on a spirit of pioneering, brave women and its mission to encourage independent, aspirational young women who contribute to the world we share has remained a basis for the School’s modern ethos.

The ability not only to adapt, but also to be a voice for positive change, is woven into the fabric of The Abbey. We want to help our students develop this ability as they enter a brave new world with an inner confidence and an understanding of the need for mindful balance, as well as independence.

The Abbey delivers an exceptional opportunity for each student to learn, care, thrive, and to shape her own future as she sees it.

We very much look forward to meeting you.
