The Abingdon School Day

The timetable gives boys plenty of access to Abingdon's extensive Other Half programme. There are over 100 activities that boys can choose from and these vary from sports, community service, CCF to clubs and societies.

Many boys travel to and from school by school bus. Buses arrive in time for boys to meet their tutors at 8.35 and leave at 5.20pm following after school activities ("The Other Half").
