Abbot’s Hill School

Abbot’s Hill School is a happy and thriving community in which pupils are encouraged to aim high, to grasp opportunities, enjoy learning and make lasting friendships.

The school offers an all-round education for girls aged 4-16 years, and the Day Nursery & Pre-School caters for girls and boys from 6 months. Abbot’s Hill’s historic campus offers modern facilities in a magnificent country setting, situated in over 70 acres of beautiful parkland.

Abbot’s Hill has a strong record of academic success. Throughout the school, pupils are taught in small classes. Excellent teaching and personalised support ensure that everyone is inspired to exceed their potential and to shine.

The broad curriculum is enhanced by a wide range of trips and activities to stimulate learning. Extra-curricular clubs offer a lively balance of sport, performing and creative arts, science and technology, journalism and problem-solving. In short, there is something for everyone! Finding out who you are has never been so much fun.

At Abbot’s Hill, there is a great focus on pastoral care. Staff work in partnership with parents to know, understand and support their daughter so that she can achieve her very best. Girls don’t just gain qualifications; they gain the skills that they need to forge their own path later in life.

The sense of being part of an extended family at Abbot’s Hill is frequently commented on by pupils, parents and staff alike. In such a nurturing environment, children grow naturally in confidence, are happy to embrace new challenges and eagerly take on increasing responsibilities.

Abbot’s Hill girls progress seamlessly from one stage of education to the next. They leave the school fully equipped to take on the challenges and opportunities life has to offer.

Bursaries & Scholarships

We are in the fortunate position to be able to offer a number of small scholarships to Year 7 entrants each year, if there are suitable candidates. Academic Scholarships and Specialist Scholarships in Art, Drama, Music or Sport are available. Scholarships take the form of a percentage reduction of School Fees usually between 5 -10% and are held for the time your daughter remains at Abbot’s Hill, subject to continuous progress judged to be satisfactory in the view of the Head.

Bursaries may be available for pupils applying, particularly for entry to Year 7. In addition the Governors’ Bursary Committee will occasionally consider Bursaries to enable girls to join the Prep School if funds permit.

In common with other fee paying schools, Bursaries are strictly means tested. It is usual for financial support to remain in place throughout a girl’s time at the school, but each award is reviewed annually and adjusted in the light of any changes in financial circumstances. All Bursary information is treated as highly confidential. Members of the teaching staff are unaware which pupils have been awarded Bursarial assistance. Any Bursary offered to a pupil should also remain strictly confidential between the parents and the school.
