Welcome to Abbotsholme School, a leading day and boarding Independent Senior, Preparatory and Pre Prep school for boys and girls aged 2 - 18.

Abbotsholmes tradition of individuality, excellence, and community is reflected in the character and disposition of our pupils; it is the foundation upon which our school was built and the heritage for its future.

Abbotsholme is more than just a school. We see learning as more than an academic pursuit; it is a 'total picture' aimed at providing a balance between a pupils intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Our pupils do well academically, excel on the games field, make inspiring music, develop creativity and challenge themselves through the enormous variety of activities on offer in our beautiful campus and beyond.

Education at Abbotsholme is an ever evolving process which stimulates the unique qualities and aptitudes of individual students. It provides a depth of curriculum and activities which recognize that no two pupils are alike. The School's diverse academic, sports, and creative programmes encourage each pupil to explore and discover innate abilities, learn teamwork, exercise initiative and, ultimately, find a productive place not only in our community but in the world at large.
