We are investing in the phased redevelopment of our Senior School and Junior School estate over the next 10+ years to build on our world-class education offering. Below you can find details of planned and completed projects.

Estates masterplan - Phase 1

December 2018 – Autumn term 2019

Remodelling and extension of the Junior School

This exciting project will greatly improve the customer experience of The Abbey Junior School and create a learning environment fit for a world-class educational establishment in the 21st century.

It will be a development that sympathetically considers the conservation area in which the School is situated and protects our Listed Buildings.

Key benefits will include:

  • Flexible teaching spaces and reconfigured administration and logistics facilities will provide our girls with the best learning experience possible
  • Improved safety for pupils, parents and staff, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians by redesigning access in and out of the School
  • Dedicated external space at the front of the School for visitor parking, pupil drop-off and improved traffic flow
  • Enhanced biodiversity and sustainability of the site through landscaping improvements
  • Improved visual impact of the Junior School and greater cohesion with the Senior School
