“Welcome to Abbotsholme, a leading day and boarding Independent School for boys and girls aged 2–18.


Abbotsholme’s tradition of individuality, excellence and community is reflected in the  character and disposition of our pupils. At Abbotsholme, we inspire our pupils to be the best version of themselves. We prize learning as a ‘total picture’ aimed at providing a balance between a pupil’s intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Our pupils do well academically, excel on the games field, make inspiring music, develop creativity and challenge themselves on the farm or through our extensive outdoor education programme.


Our vision is that pupils leave Abbotsholme as responsible and socially aware young individuals, able to face a demanding world with confidence and a zest for life. We would wish to know that they were happy with themselves and with their lives; successful in their personal and professional endeavours, whilst remaining sensitive to the needs of others.  We want all of our pupils not only to succeed, whatever their unique talents or abilities, but also to feel successful.

Our school values of Courage, Honesty, Humility, Integrity and Respect are reflected in the contributions our pupils make each year to the wider global community through the many charitable endeavours they undertake. These acts of compassion and generosity help
to enrich the lives of others as well as themselves, demonstrating clear fulfilment of the ‘education for life’ promise.

Education at Abbotsholme is an ever-evolving process which stimulates the unique qualities and aptitudes of individual students. It provides a depth of curriculum and activities which recognise that no two pupils are the same, something which our highly qualified and tremendously dedicated staff acknowledge and support wholeheartedly.”
