Welcome to Abingdon School

We are delighted that you are considering an Abingdon education for your son.

We are an academically selective school, and our impressive results speak for themselves, but we also place great emphasis on the extra-curricular. Abingdon students are encouraged to seize opportunities, to understand their responsibilities to the wider community, and to celebrate diversity in everything they do. We believe this holistic approach to education prepares young people today for their future in tomorrow’s world.

There is no typical Abingdon student and we take into consideration the character, interests and talents of every boy who applies, welcoming applications from all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. Each year, over 200 students join us from more than 100 different schools across the state and independent sectors and from overseas.

The best way to experience all that Abingdon can offer is to come and visit. We hope to welcome you soon.

For information on how we support students with learning differences, please visit our Learning Support page.

Welcome from Head of Admissions

My name is Penny Daly and I am Head of Admissions at Abingdon. As a parent myself, I know how important it is to find the right senior school for your son and I also know how daunting and stressful the process can be.

My first hand experience of the State and Independent sectors, along with my in-depth knowledge of the school will enable me to support you with any questions you may have or to put you in touch with other members of our school community.

The information provided on these pages is a useful first starting point and my team and I are always on hand to guide you through the process.
