Situated in 35 acres in the centre of Abingdon, just south of Oxford, the School combines the very best in academic standards, music, sport and the arts.
Abingdon combines over 750 years of history and tradition with a modern outlook, providing an all-round education for boys from the age of 11 to 18. As well as encouraging academic achievement, with impressive results at GCSE, A Level and Oxbridge and university entrance, the School provides extensive extra-curricular opportunities, encouraging pupils to try something new, to develop existing talents and ‘give something back’.
The majority of our pupils are dayboys although boarding plays an important part in the character of the School. Close ties with the nearby girls’ school of St Helen and St Katharine add a co-educational feel, especially to our Sixth Form, where some subjects are taught jointly and there is much collaboration with drama productions, musical activities and, of course, socially.
