The aim of Abingdon School in Partnership is to build relationships with the local community, and in particular our partner schools, to the benefit of and to challenge all staff and students.
The School has a long history of working with partner schools on a range of projects from teaching Classics in senior schools to primary school sports days.
The opening of the School’s Science Centre and the subsequent Abingdon Science Partnership initiative has broadened our association with around 30 schools. The Abingdon Science Partnership has been shortlisted on three occasions for the prestigious TES Awards for both the Community and Collaboration category and the Independent State School Partnership category.
Fitzharrys School and Abingdon have worked together for four years. Joint activities include: action based research for staff and student collaboration ranging from joint drama performances, swimming coaching, A level geography teaching and more recently sixth formers planning, resourcing and delivering the teaching of certain curriculum areas within maths and science.
As a forward thinking, outward looking school, Abingdon is keen to forge further links with schools, both primary and secondary, within the town and surrounding area.
We are looking to develop our partnerships further within academic areas as well as extra-curricular, student leadership and staff development. All of which will build on:
- Community – For Abingdon School to build on the positive role it plays in the local community.
- Collaboration – For Abingdon School students and staff to collaborate effectively and positively with members of the local community.
- Challenge – For Abingdon School students and staff to stretch and challenge themselves via collaboration.
