Academic Programme

Abbotsholme School caters for a broad academic ability range. Academic standards are high with Sixth Formers going on to their first choice university or employment. We have an Academic Charter which you can read about here.

The curriculum at Abbotsholme aims to develop critical and creative thinking, as well as self-discipline. We encourage our pupils to find their own strengths and preferred methods of learning within a structured and supportive framework.

Small classes of around 15 enable teachers to give the attention each student needs with regular assignments (homework) for pupils to do after achool.

A flexible system of sets and options ensures that all pupils are taught in small classes and progress at a pace which is appropriate to them. Click here to view our timetables for Year groups 7 to 11.

By the time they enter into the Sixth Form, students have developed a self-motivated academic discipline and a balanced approach to broader aspects of learning. As a result, the transition to Higher Education is for many a natural progression, with the foundation of independent study already in place.
