Welcome to the Abbey School
The Abbey School is a voluntary aided school affiliated to the Church of England, and it enjoys strong links with St Albans Cathedral, which is its parish church. The schools’ Christian ethos permeates all areas of school life. In November 2008 Church School inspectors (Section 48) considered the school to be an ‘outstanding’ Church of England school.
In September 2008 Ofsted judged the school to be “outstanding in most areas of its work.” Personal development of pupils and standards of achievement were judged to be outstanding, with pupils described as ‘tremendous ambassadors for the school.”
Our priority at the Abbey School is to establish a happy and caring learning environment and to enable each child to develop to his or her full potential in many fields. We pride ourselves on high academic standards, but also place great emphasis on the development of the whole child and aim to prepare each child to take the next step in their education with confidence and with an understanding of the world in which they live.
