Abingdon School Prospectus

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.
