It is with great sadness that we pass on the news that Mrs Jo Trott, a vibrant and charismatic member of The Abbey staff who taught Biology here for over 25 years, passed away on Christmas Eve after many years of illness. She was an inspirational teacher whose love of her subject led many of her students to pursue Sciences at University and beyond, providing an enduring legacy in her name.

Should you wish to attend, Mrs Trott’s Thanksgiving Service will be taking place on Tuesday 12th January, at 2.30pm at Wokingham Baptist Church.

In recognition of her devotion to the education of girls, Mrs Trott’s husband, Paul, and her family have asked for donations in her memory to be made to The Abbey School Bursary Fund. These donations will be used specifically to support academically able Science pupils at the School.

Donations can be made on-line at

or by sending a cheque payable to 'The Abbey School' to:
