Abberley Hall is a happy and vibrant co-educational boarding and day school for children aged 2-13 years. We prepare pupils for all major public schools, providing the academic, sporting and social grounding which is the foundation for sustained success. There is a 100% success rate at Common Entrance, and the pupils have an excellent scholarship record.
High-class academic education is delivered by dedicated, supportive staff. A wealth of opportunities allows pupils to explore the full range of their talents, however, the most important thing that we give the children at Abberley is their childhood.
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. 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.
To provide a broad all-round education in the academic sphere; in a range of sports, in the creative arts, and with a firm social grounding. We aim for the pupils to leave our school with a sense of independence, self-belief and initiative. 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.
Our belief is that every child should be treated as an individual, and we encourage pupils to develop an understanding of their particular strengths, while enjoying their childhood and developing firm friendships. We aim to teach pupils the benefits and pleasures derived from being part of a strong community with a shared set of values; namely – honesty, endeavouring to try one’s hardest, mutual respect and support, and a commitment to the school community.
The Good Schools Guide
‘The children (at Abberley Hall) are strikingly open and unaffected, living witness to the Head’s belief that prep school children retain their innocence longer. They are unselfconscious, gutsy and ready to talk to adults appropriately…they love the outdoor freedom and they also know life is a serious and competitive business, which they are up for. The school…has much to be proud of in its past and everything to suggest the future is golden for the children lucky enough to come here.’ The Good Schools Guide, 21st Edition.
