New facilities officially opened by Chair of Governors, Professor Michael Stevens
On Friday, Chair of Governors Professor Michael Stevens officially opened Abingdon Prep School’s exciting new state-of-the-art facilities. The dedicated music school, DT workshop, second science lab and new classrooms has enabled pre-existing rooms to repurposed and renovated – this includes the creation of a new, double height library situated in the very heart of the school and a bespoke Pre-Prep hub.
Adding to the Prep School’s already enviable facilities (the school has 30 acres of sports grounds, play areas and woodland, not to mention access to the facilities of its senior school), the new facilities have significantly enhanced its offering but, perhaps more crucially, will further improve the school experience for pupils.
Headmaster, Craig Williams, says: “As a Foundation, Abingdon is passionate about ensuring our students and staff have up to date, modern, flexible and ‘fit for purpose’ facilities which will help them to succeed academically and support them pastorally in an ever changing world.
“Our new facilities, all built with sustainable credentials, will offer even greater opportunities to Abingdon Prep pupils both now and in the future.
“I am incredibly grateful to our Estates team who have overseen the project from fruition to completion and to Professor Michael Stevens for coming along today to officially open the facilities.”
