The Sixth Form at Abingdon marks the beginning of the transition from school to further education. Boys in the Sixth Form enjoy a relationship with the school and staff that more closely resembles university. They are encouraged to take on further responsibility and independence for their own learning.

Below, we have summarised the information available on the website about our Sixth Form. Please follow the links for further details.

The Head of Sixth Form, Nick O’Doherty, is also available to answer your questions. [email protected]

Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form

Academic Information

The academic subjects available to study in the Sixth Form are one of the main areas that boys and their parents want to discuss so we have asked our members of staff to record a short introductory video about their subject. You can also find information on the curriculum and more details about each subject in the academic section of the website.

Sixth Form Life

We thought you might want to hear from one of our current sixth formers about life in the sixth form – the inside story!


The Other Half

Abingdon prides itself on the breadth and opportunities available in our Other Half. In the video below our Director of the Other Half, Henry Morgan, talks about what we offer.



We have a very vibrant sixth form boarding community. If you are interested in joining the boarders then we would like to introduce you to three of our Lower Sixth who can give you an insight into boarding life at Abingdon.


And more…

The website provides a wealth of information about all aspects of Abingdon but to help you with a brief overview of certain key areas, we asked members of staff to record a short video to provide an introduction to: Teaching and Learning, E-Learning, Wellbeing and the Old Abingdonian Club.

The Last Word…

And finally, who better to ask for their thoughts on Abingdon but our current Heads of School who reflect on their time here.
