The Abingdon Foundation – Aims and Ethos

Abingdon aims to educate boys and young men of talent and potential to the highest level, so that each may take his place in adulthood, able to compete with and meet with confidence his contemporaries from across the world.

This is achieved by offering the highest quality academic programme which is enhanced by the diversity and breadth of an extensive “Other Half” and supported by meaningful and appropriate pastoral care.

A young man leaving Abingdon should be well qualified so as to access the best possible university education and careers thereafter, be adaptable and flexible, be able to communicate with others from all walks of life, be civilised and courteous in his dealings with others and be secure and content with the individual he is.

He will have a sense of what his values are and an awareness that life is not just about himself.
