Whilst academic achievement is important, at Abbot’s Hill we believe that education should also nurture independent thinking and instil confidence, empathy and the ability to build strong relationships.

We therefore provide wide-ranging opportunities for pupils to participate in sporting, cultural and artistic activities and to experience the challenges of team work and leadership.

Outside the classroom, there is a full programme of extra-curricular activities at lunchtime and after lessons, even before school. These include dance, journalism, music theory, yoga, F1 in Schools, trampolining, rugby, STEM club and musical quartets. The Elite Athlete Programme offers girls the opportunity to progress further in their chosen sports.

These in-house activities are complemented by a rich array of trips and visits for both Prep and Senior pupils.

As an Artsmark Platinum School, the creative and performing arts are key elements of Abbot’s Hill. We provide a wealth of opportunities for pupils to take part, enhance their creativity and learn new skills.
