Welcome from the Head: Rachel Dent

Welcome to our school. It is my great privilege to be leading a school such as The Abbey; every day is different, every day inspiring and every day I am honoured to work with the girls who are going to be shaping our future world.

The Abbey is a warm and welcoming community of individuals with each girl bringing her unique talents, interests and character to build an environment that is diverse, inclusive and energetic. There is a genuine desire to strive for the best intellectually and personally and we celebrate achievement in all its forms from the Nursery to the Sixth Form and on into life.

The School has a 130-year history at the forefront of women’s education and we continue to pursue our goal of empowering girls to become outstanding women who contribute positively to the world we live in. Our girls are given the chance to excel and they do so with an inner confidence built through understanding the need for balance as well as independence.

We are a world class school that delivers a unique and exceptional opportunity for any girl who loves to learn. We very much look forward to meeting you.
