Abingdon School has thrived for over 750 years and, combined with Abingdon Prep School within the Abingdon Foundation, we now educate over 1300 pupils aged 4 – 18 years across our two sites. We combine our long and rich history with a progressive outlook, ever mindful of our responsibility for the education of our pupils, and of our commitment to ensure that the Foundation remains a force for good in our local community and the wider world.
We want the young men who leave Abingdon each year to carry with them a sense that they are the best that they can be: in academic achievement, in sport, music, the arts and in the social relationships so important in all spheres of their interest and endeavour. We also want them to relish the opportunities they will have to make a difference in the world beyond Abingdon.
We recognise the excellence of our buildings and facilities, and the qualities of our staff and our pupils. We have seen how, in contributing to our rapidly expanding partnership programme, the Abingdon community can share with and learn from colleagues and peers in the many other schools with which we now have relationships.
We particularly recognise that there are boys of great ability who could gain so much from an Abingdon education but whose family circumstances would not permit this without assistance from our bursary programme. We want to expand such opportunities to broaden and encourage diversity amongst our community.
Our latest impact report is available from the development office and a copy can be obtained from [email protected]. I hope it interests you and that you will feel encouraged to support and develop our plans for the future in any way you can.
