Welcome to Abbeyfield

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school.

The principles of innovation, determination, integrity and drive are values which we want everyone associated with our school to stand for and be known by.

Our pupils consistently demonstrate these principles and rise to the very high standards set by the staff; this is reflected in their excellent examination results.

We recognise the great commitment required by students, their families and staff to make a successful education a reality. By choosing Abbeyfield, you will be choosing a school which places the highest priority on pupil well-being. We believe strongly that having students in the right place emotionally gives them the greatest chance of achieving their own academic excellence. By supporting all of our young people to be self-assured and confident in who they are, will ensure they leave us with exciting futures.

Celebrating pupil achievement is very important to us and many celebration events take place throughout the school year. At Abbeyfield, pupils feel it is the norm to work hard and ‘excel, both in lessons during the school day, and in the many after school activities we offer.

Relationships between pupils and staff are very positive. We all work together as a team, to ensure that every pupil achieves their full potential. The curriculum is rich and varied to enable all pupils to be successful and achieve their goals, regardless of their ability.

The world we live in is an increasingly demanding world both in and beyond school. The Abbeyfield School community will help to prepare your child for the challenges ahead. To that end, we sincerely hope you enjoy looking through our website and that it will give you a flavour of the opportunity and education we would offer your child. However we would strongly advise you to come and see us in person to truly appreciate the experience that we offer.
