Welcome to Abberley, a happy and vibrant co-educational school for children aged 2-13. Children attend our Pre-Prep and Nursery up to the age of 7, and from 8 years old they join the boarding and day Prep School.
Set in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside, Abberley's school grounds extend across 90 acres and allow our children a real sense of freedom throughout. Whether it is in Forest School, our Outdoor Learning area, playing sport or participating in after school activities, Abberley pupils spend a great deal of their childhood outdoors.
Small class sizes, high quality classroom teaching and committed pastoral care ensure that at Abberley the teachers really know and understand the children as individuals. We believe that learning should be an exciting experience and we strive to be truly innovative whilst maintaining a strong academic ethos and offering support for those who need it.
Day pupils participate closely in the vibrant boarding school life and our extended school day enables children in our Prep School to play Games six days a week, and enjoy an extensive activities programme.
The culture of the Prep School is at the heart of our Pre-Prep too. We make use of the Prep School’s extensive grounds, facilities and staff, providing music, French, drama, science and PE lessons from an early age, and co-ordinate syllabuses between the two schools. We also offer an exciting range of After School Clubs and activities.
There is a strong culture of performance and participation encouraged right from the beginning. All our children get regular opportunities to perform in the sporting, theatrical, musical and public speaking arenas.
Abberley enables children to build life-long friendships and prepares them for success in a global and changing world. It’s a special place with a certain magic that we think can be best summed up as ‘Gumboots and Greek’; that is to say, making the most of a fantastic setting, but with academic rigour.
We would love you to come and experience the warmth and politeness of the children at Abberley. You will be made extremely welcome here and we invite you to come and visit us to see for yourselves.
