OUTSTANDING academic achievement, excellent relationships between staff and pupils and a wealth of opportunities for personal development were just some of the aspects of The Abbey School praised by assessors from the Independent Schools Inspectorate when they carried out a full inspection of The Abbey in October last year.
Awarding the highest ratings in all categories, inspectors concluded that “the quality of pupils’ achievements and learning is exceptional.”
Praising the warmth of The Abbey community the inspectors noted: “The relationships between pupils and staff show high levels of mutual care and respect.”
Inspectors added “a desire for learning is evident throughout” the junior school, where “motivated teachers engage inquisitive learners with challenging lessons that skilfully combine enjoyment with purpose”.
Alongside a dynamic curriculum an enormous breadth of extracurricular clubs and trips ensures that school is always an exciting place to be. Headteacher of The Abbey School, Rachel Dent said: “It is rare for any school to achieve a rating at this level and I’m delighted that the inspectors appreciated not just the girls’ superb achievements, but also the caring and positive atmosphere of the school and the opportunities for girls to grow into confident, happy young women.”
Places are currently available for pupils wanting to join year three in September 2015. All are welcome to the junior school open morning on Friday, February 6, from 9.15am.
