We hope that the website provides you with a good introduction to Abingdon and the virtual tour will give you a taste of some of our facilities, but there is nothing quite like actually being here to really appreciate our campus and the unique atmosphere that is Abingdon.
We have a range of visit opportunities for parents and students, please see details below.
Our whole school Open Day is on Saturday 1 October 2022 between 9am and 1.30pm. All prospective families are welcome to come and explore Abingdon for themselves.

Events for parents
Our Discover Abingdon events are mini open mornings for parents whose child is looking to join Abingdon in the next few years. These events are intended to be for parents only and involve a tour of the school, an address and Q&A session with the Headmaster and senior staff from our academic, pastoral and admissions departments.
The appointments include a meeting with the Head of Admissions and a tour of the school. They can be in person events at school or they can take place over Zoom or the telephone.
Events for prospective students
We hold taster mornings for students looking to join us in the First Year or Third Year. They are usually held on a Saturday morning and they provide the opportunity to experience lessons and Other Half activities. Parents are invited to join us at the end of the taster morning to meet staff and the admissions team and take part in a Q&A session.
If any of your group has a disability or access requirements which we should take into account when arranging your visit, please let us know in advance.
