“Welcome to Abingdon. Although our school benefits from long traditions of scholarship and learning, we also embrace innovation and fresh thinking. The pupils here are remarkable young people with exciting futures.
We encourage them to think for themselves, to have confidence in their ability and to develop a spirit of independence. We provide a safe and caring environment in which each boy is known and valued as an individual and can mature at his own pace.
Our collective lives are shaped by a culture of challenge and enterprise, where pupils are encouraged to embrace their aspirations and to make the most of their talents and abilities. Abingdon’s success is rooted in its enthusiastic and expert staff who are wholly committed to passing on a love of their subject.
Academic standards are very high but a commitment to pupils’ wider personal development is a touchstone of our approach to education. Indeed, Abingdon is renowned for the Other Half, the vast array of extra-curricular activities which make up an important part of every day at our school.
We take great care to make sure boys feel they belong. Our House system and small tutor groups ensure pupils build relationships with staff and peers that are close and supported. Indeed the culture of the school is one of consideration and kindness.
Although educating young people is a great responsibility that we take very seriously, we never forget that a school should also be a place of laughter and fun and we encourage pupils to maintain a healthy sense of perspective. We are specialists in boys’ education and endeavour to produce open-minded, confident and well-rounded young men.
I hope that you enjoy learning more about Abingdon from the website but nothing can replace the experience of seeing the School with your own eyes and getting a feel for the very special atmosphere here, so I hope too that we will be able to welcome you here soon.”
