We asked our children what they wanted in a class teacher. They said “passionate, encouraging, talented, trustworthy, kind and firm but fair”. If this sounds like you, then St Mary Abbots School may be the place for you!
We are a popular and high-performing Church of England primary school, set in a beautiful location just off High Street Kensington. Although in the middle of the city, our families describe our school as being village-like, with a real sense of community. We believe that as children only get their education once, it has to be right. Therefore we challenge ourselves and our children to achieve the very best in every sense.
