Outstanding examination results consistently place the School amongst the best in the country, and thanks to the International Baccalaureate, among the best in the world.

Students are encouraged to work conscientiously and to the best of their ability and this, combined with the dedication of our teaching staff, ensures that the students gain exceptional results which allow them to aim high in their future education and career choices. The Abbey is often in the company of schools, both from the maintained and independent sectors, who are far more selective and this highlights the added value of an Abbey education. This is backed up by statistical evidence which shows that the students who join at Year 7 go on to achieve grades well above what was predicted in tests at age 11.
