Abingdon is a leading independent day and boarding school for boys aged 11-18. Full and weekly boarding is available from age 13. Abingdon Prep School is a day school for boys aged 4 to 13. The two schools together make up the Abingdon Foundation.
At Abingdon we aim to teach and develop the resources, skills and resilience that students need to feel confident in embracing their future. We encourage students to seize opportunities and to appreciate their responsibilities to each other and to society as a whole. The School promotes a culture of mutual respect and equality and we celebrate diversity.
Abingdon enjoys the very best in academic standards, music, sport and the arts in a caring and supportive environment where students are motivated to succeed. The health and wellbeing of our boys is paramount and the School has a comprehensive pastoral care system centred around a boy’s tutor and housemaster.
The School is situated in 35 acres of beautiful grounds in the centre of Abingdon, just south of Oxford. There are around 1000 boys at Abingdon and a further 250 boys at the Prep School, which is based just a few miles away at Frilford.
