Boarding has been at the heart of the Abingdon story since our inception and remains a vital part of our School today. I invite you to share in our exciting transformational journey by viewing the video above.

Boarding houses feature extended study room facilities and social hubs

At a glance

Sixth formers have single study bedrooms

The new boarding houses are sustainably constructed, featuring air source heat pumps and solar panels.

Not just friends at school but friends for life.

A cosy home from home environment.

Our exciting new accommodation has enhanced our existing facilities for both day students and boarders.

Communal rooms are vibrant, cheerful and practical; study rooms offer a quiet space for academic work; and the kitchenettes allow boarders to prepare their own hot drinks and snacks if desired. Most significant, are the addition of single study bedrooms for our sixth form boarders, providing a truly personalised space in which students can rest, relax and apply themselves to their studies.

How will my
donation help?

You can choose to support the next chapter of our boarding story by sponsoring one of the rooms our current boarders have named.  Every donor will be offered the chance to have a dedication plaque with their name and chosen text next to the room they have sponsored.

This is an extremely rare chance to have a personal connection with Abingdon’s history and future. You can find out which rooms are available to sponsor on the floor plans below and make a pledge. We are here to answer any questions so please feel free to contact us in the Development Team.
