Since I arrived as Headmaster in September 2020, I have been working on finalising Abberley Hall’s values. I have spoken to many different people from our community, from pupils and staff, to parents and Old Abberlians, and it soon became clear that there were characteristics in Abberley pupils that were common to all, no matter when they were here. So, our values are: Kindness, Courage, Integrity, Ambition, Collaboration, Respect and Adventure.

We wanted to demonstrate that these values are so deeply woven into an Abberley education, OAs continue to possess them many years after leaving our classrooms. We have been speaking to a variety of former pupils recently who have each shown these values in different ways since leaving Abberley Hall. We hope that the following profiles will provide interesting reading and will show the breadth of skillsets with which we equip our pupils for life after Prep School.

This is an ongoing going project to which new OAs will be added, so if you would like to let us know about a remarkable OA then please do so. We’d love to hear from you.
