Virtual Open Events
The Abbey is a School full of joy where independence, freedom of thought, and awareness of the world around us flourishes. We believe in innovation, an international outlook, encouraging all our students to use their voice - and as a School, we listen. So welcome to our Virtual Open Events - providing you an opportunity to get a sense of who we are, and meet students and staff in the Junior, Senior School or in Sixth Form along the way.
Book onto one of our live webinars too, and ask questions to our Head of School, staff and students.
(Booking forms can be found at the end of the Virtual Tours)
