Facts and Figures 2023/24 School Life

Although Abingdon is based on long traditions of scholarship and learning, it’s also a school that embraces innovation and fresh thinking. Our pupils are remarkable young people with exciting futures, and we encourage them to think for themselves and to develop a spirit of independence that will enable them to thrive in a rapidly-changing world. And while educating young people is a great responsibility that we take very seriously, our school is also a place of laughter, fun and discovery – a place where open-minded, confident and well-rounded young men are formed. Mike Windsor, Headmaster

Facts and Figures 2023/24 Academic Success isn’t just about hard work. Success stems from passion and curiosity – which is why it’s a natural outcome of an Abingdon education. The breadth and depth of our subjects, together with our encouragement of independent thinking, mean that each boy can follow his own interests and strengths – not filling an Abingdon mould, but thriving and succeeding in a unique way. We combine a wide variety of traditional academic subjects with contemporary disciplines, practical classes, cultural trips and the arts – all taught by our enthusiastic, expert staff who love to spark creative thinking and passionate debate, making learning a challenging and compelling experience for every boy in the class. This means that students leave Abingdon with some of the best results in the country, well-equipped to continue their learning at any of the world’s top universities and to enjoy fulfilling futures of exploration, discovery and accomplishment.

We believe that classroom learning should only be one half of the reason for coming to school and only one half of what will be important to boys as they mature – which is why we devote so much time to our Other Half programme. With dedicated space in the weekly timetable as well as after lessons, boys are free to choose a number of extra-curricular opportunities each term from our range of over 120 activities. They might be drawn to the excitement and camaraderie of the Combined Cadet Force or DofE, the mental challenges of chess or board-gaming, the journalistic opportunities of newspaper and magazine writing, the altruistic enjoyment of volunteering in the community, or the development of a new skill such as computer programming, debating, or robotics. Whichever activities a boy pursues, the two halves of an Abingdon education add up to a whole school experience that enables our students to become well-rounded, resourceful and ambitious learners. The Other Half

Facts and Figures 2023/24 There’s a great range of activities to do and a lovely atmosphere.” Owen

It’s great being all together in one house. It’s a proper community.” Josh

Facts and Figures 2023/24 School is a place of discovery, where boys learn about themselves and the world around them, and at its best this is a hugely exhilarating, fun and rewarding time. We want to make sure that all our boys are emotionally and mentally healthy so that they are able to enjoy their school experience – and to help each other to do the same. That is why we have a strong emphasis on community. Every student belongs to a house throughout their time at Abingdon, creating a sense of family and putting them in the care of a dedicated housemaster. Each boy also has a personal tutor, who he meets with every day, as well as being a part of our peer-mentoring system, which encourages the boys to look out for one another. We also dedicate space in the timetable to think and talk about issues like healthy living, rights and responsibilities, self-esteem and relationships. As a result we have a learning environment that develops our boys both intellectually and emotionally, giving them a balanced perspective on life and encouraging them to grow in resilience, confidence, generosity and kindness. Pastoral

Sport Sport is good for both the body and the mind, so from beginners to international athletes we offer every boy the opportunity to get involved and to develop in a wide range of sporting activities. Our Sports Centre is equipped with an eight-lane swimming pool, squash courts, a climbing wall and a series of fitness suites, as well as a martial arts and fencing studio. We also have 60 acres of sports pitches, including all-weather surfaces for hockey, football, rugby and athletics, and have a boathouse on the River Thames within easy reach of the school. Both individual and team achievement is important and every boy is expertly coached to reach his full potential. There are frequent opportunities to compete and our boys have enjoyed great success at regional, national and international levels. We value sport not only for its health and fitness benefits but also for the camaraderie, teamwork and self-motivation it inspires, and we’re proud of the renowned dedication and good-sportsmanship of all our Abingdon teams.

Facts and Figures 2023/24 During a formative time of exploration and discovery, Art, Design and Technology offers a significant opportunity for students to evaluate and express their thoughts, questions, feelings and observations. In both timetabled lessons and Other Half activities, boys are encouraged to develop their creativity and design ideas through a variety of media – from painting and printmaking to ceramics, digital design, sculpture and woodwork. Our Art department houses a number of large studios, workshops and classrooms, each equipped for general Art, Design and Technology but also with specialist facilities, including a wide range of professional-standard machinery. And our highlyskilled staff – practising artists in their own right – strike a balance between helping the boys to master key skills and techniques and encouraging them to develop their imaginations and their ability to visually communicate ideas and meaning. Regardless of age or ability, we find that the creative arts improve our boys’ self-discipline, develop their lateral thinking skills and spark creativity and innovation across their studies. Creative Arts

Whether boys prefer performing under the bright lights or managing them from behind the scenes, our Drama programme offers everyone a range of enjoyable and enriching new experiences. Throughout their time at Abingdon, boys have the opportunity to learn theatre arts such as mime, stage combat, puppetry, sound and lighting techniques and set design, as well as familiarising themselves with a wide variety of writers and genres. To showcase these skills we produce a bold and entertaining mix of classical plays, musical theatre and contemporary work across the school year, many staged in our own 450-seat theatre and often in partnership with neighbouring girls’ school St Helen and St Katharine. We also have our own award-winning Abingdon Film Unit, through which the boys can create their own short films under the guidance of a team of film-industry professionals. These creative endeavours not only improve the boys’ confidence, cultural awareness and communication skills, but also give them a unique outlet for personal exploration and self-expression. Drama

Facts and Figures 2023/24 Music Whatever style of music a boy prefers, and whether he wants to make it a career or enjoy it as a hobby, he’ll find opportunities to explore and develop his musical interests at Abingdon. Music is a key part of both our curriculum and Other Half programme and the standard of our music education is high, with a number of students in most years going on to take Scholarships at top Oxbridge colleges and conservatoires. Yet we also make sure music is enjoyable for boys of all ages and abilities. In addition to the availability of individual instrumental and vocal lessons, students can get involved with any number of orchestras, choirs and bands – from gospel to jazz, blues to classical. We regularly stage a variety of concerts and musical theatre productions in our own impressive facilities, and many of the orchestras and choirs also have opportunities to tour and perform abroad. Wherever Abingdon boys perform, the same skill, creativity and love of music shines through.

Boarding houses are familiar second homes to boys, shared with the same students, housemaster and resident tutors throughout their time at the school. Day boys also belong to boarding houses, ensuring a good mix, and the friendships formed provide a stable and supportive foundation for academic exploration and learning. The houses themselves encourage an active, fun and friendly community life – in addition to bedrooms and study areas, the boys have a variety of communal spaces with sociable activities like table-tennis, pool, computers and TV. We have a wonderful mix of local and international boarders, creating a vibrant and culturally diverse environment. A great variety of activities is available to the boys in non-school hours, including paintballing, sailing, punting, bowling, socials with girls’ schools, and a wide-range of trips. Our boarders also learn to take responsibility for organising their daily lives, engaging with simple tasks such as cooking and laundry as well as personal admin and money management, preparing them for independent life beyond school.
