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.

Open Day

We have had an exceptional amount of interest in Open Day this year so it is essential to book your place please, as only limited spaces remain available.

Our open day is on Saturday 2 October 2021. It is a day for the whole family to come and see Abingdon and all that we offer. There is a dedicated sixth form forum and tours of the boarding houses as well as a wide range of academic and Other Half activities to discover. Further information about our open day can be found here.

Our booking system will manage the flow of visitors and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to hear the Headmaster’s address.


Events for parents

Discover Abingdon

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.


Private appointments

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.

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.
