The prestigious new Abbey Fellow award was launched as part of the 130th celebration launch on 4 May 2017 with HRH The Countess of Wessex. The Fellowship is a valuable addition to the development of the School, offering expertise and support, and allowing us to acknowledge a variety of individuals from The Abbey community who have made an outstanding contribution to the school.
Our first Abbey Fellows were appointed formally at a special lunch on the first day of our 130 year celebrations – 4 May 2017.

To mark our 130th anniversary year, in May 2018 the School formed a Guild made up of parents, former parents, Head Girls, alumnae, friends of The Abbey and our community partners.
Its aim is to provide stronger and more structured links between the School and our diverse communities.
