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.

Matthew Kendry Head of Boarding

Boarding houses will feature extended study room facilities and social hubs.

At a glance

All sixth formers will have single bedrooms.

The new boarding houses will be constructed to a high level of sustainability and will feature air source heat pumps and solar panels.

Not just friends at school but friends for life.

A cosy home from home environment.

This exciting development project will not only improve our existing boarding facilities, but also enhance the House experience for our day pupils and our boarders.

The new accommodation will be cheerful and practical with vibrant communal House rooms, extended study room facilities and kitchenettes. Perhaps most significantly, there will be single bedrooms for all Sixth Formers, really allowing them to personalise their space to provide a true home from home experience.

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.
