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 June 2013 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.
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.
