Abbey Hill School & Performing Arts College

The aim of the website is to share information about Abbey Hill School & Performing Arts College to a wide audience. However, I believe that only a visit to the school can capture the school ethos and the warm nurturing atmosphere.

The school has always endeavoured to be a forward thinking school, a place where every child really does matter. Abbey Hill prides itself on providing quality education, support and care for all its pupils. The staff always try to go “the extra mile”.

This has been acknowledged consistently over the years by OFSTED Inspections:

  • “Abbey Hill is an outstanding school where all the staff are passionate about providing the very best for the pupils and pupils delight in learning” (OFSTED 2006)
  • “Expert teaching leads pupils to make outstanding progress from their individual starting points” (OFSTED 2010)
  • “From low starting points most students make rapid progress in all subjects” (OFSTED 2014)
  • “The sixth form is outstanding” (OFSTED 2014)

Given the OFSTED reports it is no surprise that Abbey Hill is held in high esteem by parents and the local community and it is our aim to be even better.
