About

Welcome from the Headmistress

Preferred Elizabeth Thomas

At Abbot’s Hill we aim to provide a vibrant and inclusive educational experience which allows our pupils to achieve and exceed their own and others’ expectations. We are extremely fortunate to have the benefit of a splendid rural setting which is complemented by the support of caring, committed staff and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The school has an elegant country house as its main building, purpose-built teaching centres and stunning parkland. Here our pupils learn easily and grow naturally. They are inspired and encouraged to aim for their very best – academically and socially without the pressures of a hothouse environment.

Each child is a special character and receives not just an intellectual, social, cultural and physical education but positive individual attention which encourages academic aspiration and an enthusiastic response to the outstanding range of extra-curricular and leadership opportunities on offer. Every girl has the opportunity to challenge herself – to discover and develop her individual talents and to have these recognised and celebrated.

Our girls are well-educated, creative, caring and adaptable. After our care and attention they leave us at the end of Year 11 academically prepared, socially able and brimming with self-confidence, ready for Sixth Form challenges and the infinite possibilities beyond.
