In May 2024, Abingdon Prep, along with Abingdon School, announced their decision to move to co-education. We will be welcoming girls to our Pre-Prep from September 2024 and to Years 3 to 6 at our Prep from September 2025. Further information is available here.

Welcome to Abingdon Prep School

We are delighted you are considering our caring, friendly and inclusive school for your child. Along with our Senior School, we are academically selective but we give great consideration to the character, interests, talents and personality of every young person who applies.

There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Abingdon Prep pupil or candidate and we welcome applications from children of all backgrounds and faiths. We believe this holistic approach to education prepares young people today for their future in tomorrow’s world.

It is this vision which has led us to move to co-education. We will be welcoming girls into the Pre-Prep from 2024, and into Years 3 to 6 at the Prep from 2025. You can read the full announcement here.

Welcome from Admissions Manager

My name is Beverley Buckle and I am the Admissions Manager here. I am delighted that you are considering Abingdon Prep for your daughter or son. As a parent myself, I understand how very important it is to choose the right school for your child and I also know how daunting it can be. I am here to answer any questions you may have and to help guide you through the process.

Abingdon Prep is a very happy and friendly school. We pride ourselves on our high academic standards; the opportunities that lie in wait for our pupils through our extensive extra-curricular programme, fondly known as the Other Half; and the charismatic, helpful and caring children who flourish here.

The best way to get a flavour of what Abingdon Prep offers is to come and see the School for yourself.

I look forward to welcoming you to Abingdon Prep soon.
