Head PhotoAn Abbotsholme education is an education for life. Abbotsholme is an independent co-educational boarding and day school for ages 4-18, with additional nursery provision. It a wonderful place in which to learn and develop, where each child's contribution is properly valued and encouraged throughout. Pupils are high achievers and leave Abbotsholme confident, independent and adaptable.

The ISI inspectors recently commented that Abbotsholme is '...outstanding, emotionally healthy and spiritually colourful.' We know that all of our children are individuals and consequently they are cared for as such.

We provide a stimulating and balanced learning environment in deliberately small classes of a maximum 15 in the senior school where individual academic excellence and achievement are in evidence every day.

The Abbotsholme journey begins in the Pre-Prep and Prep School. With 170 a acres of copses, fields, dingles and games pitches, and science, art and languages taught by specialist teachers from the senior school, our youngest pupils enjoy unique access to all the facilities that the senior pupils use.

Our Senior School develops pupils' learning with a deliberately wide curriculum including all the usual academic subjects as well as life skills lesson and a variety of outdoor education activities. At GCSE level, pupils are examined in the core subjects and most take nine, some take eleven, others less. It all depends on the individual.

At Sixth Form, there is a lot more freedom and independence for our eldest pupils. With their own sixth form centre to encourage independent learning in a wide range of subjects at A Level, as well as a log cabin village for our boarders, Abbotsholme creates the best preparation for life.

Everyone is good at something and at Abbotsholme we give pupils ample opportunity to find out what that is. We have outstanding facilities including a synthetic pitch, indoor climbing centre, BHS approved equestrian centre, working farm, theatre, music centre, art studio and extensive playing fields. There are opportunities for den building, camping and kayaking for the Prep School, and Duke of Edinburgh, overseas trips, electric car racing and help with lambing in the Senior School.
