Pupils at Abbot’s Hill benefit from an approach to learning that provides the right balance of academic challenge, support and inspiration. A broad and balanced curriculum nurtures curiosity and a spirit of enquiry. High expectations, excellent teaching and personalised support from hugely dedicated staff ensure that everyone is inspired to exceed their potential at every stage of their learning journey, and we celebrate their achievements with pride and excitement.
Our approach to teaching and learning develops the competence and confidence of pupils. We encourage independent thought by challenging them to think for themselves and explore new ideas whilst also ensuring they develop the vitally important skills of problem-solving and collaboration so important for their future lives.
As girls progress through the Prep and Senior School they are introduced to an increasingly challenging, diverse and exciting curriculum providing academic rigour alongside stimulating opportunities which extend beyond the classroom and help to put learning into context. With the benefit of small class sizes which facilitate in-depth learning, girls thrive; developing greater awareness of themselves as learners and responding with enthusiasm, commitment and a great spirit of enjoyment. High fliers are stretched and there is exceptional support for those who need it. We carefully monitor the academic and personal development of the girls at all stages and work in partnership with parents to ensure that the girls make the best possible progress.
Public examination results are outstanding and consistently well above the national average with high levels of value added achievement. Abbot’s Hill leavers are highly sought after by Sixth Forms and colleges and many girls achieve prestigious scholarships.
