Abbey Hill is an Ofsted-Rated GOOD school; we are “A gem of a school!”
Here at Abbey Hill, we take pride in being Abbeyhillians. Abbeyhillians is our identity and, as Abbeyhillians, we all belong here at Abbey Hill. We pride ourselves on enriching the curriculum with opportunity. We call this our Abbeyhillian Factor.
We are proud of our busy, friendly school and of the children and families who make up our Abbeyhillian community. It is our aim to make sure children are cared for, nurtured and respected and to be a school where each and every child can learn, grow and be happy. We believe that everyone in school should enjoy their learning and feel proud of their achievements.
We want to prepare our Abbeyhillians for life in the ever changing world we live in so they can make a positive contribution to society and live happy and full lives, whatever they choose to be.
At Abbey Hill we want to make sure children are in the right place socially and emotionally so they are ready to concentrate and learn every day. Our curriculum starts with children learning about themselves, their lives and their family and broadens out to learning about the local community, the country and the wider world. Learning projects go further back in time as children move through the school, with Y6 learning about the most ancient civilizations and ideas.
As a school community we believe that children learn and grow when everyone comes together – children, parents, staff, governors and the local community. We really value the relationship we have with our parents and the way they support their children.
