Prep SchoolGirls & Boys
8-13 yrs


I am delighted to welcome you to Abberley, a happy and vibrant co-educational boarding and day preparatory school for children aged 8-13. There’s a magic about Abberley Hall, best summed up in the phrase "Gumboots and Greek"; that is to say, making the most of a fantastic, rural setting but with academic rigour.

Situated in 90 acres of spectacular Worcestershire parkland, our wonderful setting provides a context which allows for a real and tangible sense of freedom. Abberley children spend a great deal of time outdoors.  This can be in the Outdoor Learning area, playing Games, which they do six days a week, or participating in the extensive evening activities programme.

With small class sizes the teachers really know and understand the children as individuals. We are very lucky to have the scope to be truly innovative.  For me, the quality of teaching is paramount and we strive to make learning an exciting experience. Above all, Abberley is a place for children to build life-long friendships and develop the skills and breadth of mind that prepare them for success in a global and changing world.

Will Lockett, Headmaster
