About us: Abbey View Primary Academy is a new, state of the art academy in the heart of the Pine Trees Development in High Wycombe. We opened our doors in September 2019 and serve the nursery and primary education needs of our new community and new housing development. In September 2023, we will be opening our Year 6 class. The Academy will continue to grow, year-on-year, to a two-form entry primary academy, offering places from Nursery to Year 6 and wraparound care provision. Abbey View is a vibrant academy where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve. We want our children not just to achieve, but to exceed expectations and attain the very best results they can academically, creatively and personally. Our pupils take ownership of their learning, becoming highly aspirational and resilient learners. Our motto is ‘Learning Today…Leading Tomorrow’ and this underpins everything we do. There is no doubt that Abbey View is an exciting place to be – for children, staff, parents and the local community.
