Welcome from the Head of the Junior School:

Nisha Kaura

The Abbey is a remarkable community of learning. It is a place of curiosity, adventurous spirits, and the excitement of discovery.

We foster an atmosphere of warmth and support, full of fun and laughter; one that builds the confidence to take risks, explore interests and passions, and engage confidently with the world and with each other.

The Abbey Junior School is all about liveliness of mind and playful engagement across the widest range of subjects and activities. The sheer delight in learning and enthusiasm is infectious. It is nurtured by staff whose passion is to find, encourage and develop the talents and interests of students; to help students surprise themselves with what they can achieve and discover. In other words: to become their unique best selves.

We aim to educate in the fullest sense of the word – ‘to lead out’. Thus, we provide our pupils with a range of experiences to help girls to grow in awareness of themselves and of others, to explore unafraid what life has to offer and to begin to realise how they can make a contribution. Our Abbey Learner Profile articulates many of the characteristics that we believe are important qualities for young people to take with them into the world and we place great store in their development

We are in the business of caring for children’s happiness and development. We take this privilege very seriously and it brings us much enjoyment. I hope you will visit us soon.
