Welcome to The Abbey CE VA Primary School

Welcome to The Abbey CE VA Primary School

Welcome to The Abbey Primary School. We are a voluntary aided school affiliated to the Church of England and enjoy strong links with St Albans Cathedral, which is our parish church. The schools’ Christian ethos permeates all areas of school life. In May 2018 Church School inspectors (Section 48) considered the school to be an ‘outstanding’ Church of England school.

In September 2019 Ofsted judged the school to be ‘Good’ in Overall Effectiveness and in all the five areas judged: Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development, Leadership and Management and Early Years. This is something we are very proud of and reflects our self-evaluation against the inspection criteria.

I am sorry that we cannot provide a face-to-face tour to prospective families this year,  as staff, children and I really enjoy sharing what makes Abbey School such a special place to learn.

Please watch the two short videos below, which we have created to give prospective families a snapshot into life here at Abbey School.   The first video gives you a glimpse into the whole school and the second is focused on Early Years.
