The curriculum at Abbotsholme aims to develop critical and creative thinking and self-discipline. We encourage our pupils to find their own strengths and preferred methods of learning but within a structured and supportive framework.
A staff:pupil ratio of around 1:15 enables teachers to give the attention each student needs. In addition, the tutorial system at Abbotsholme ensures that each pupil’s progress is continuously monitored, in terms of effort and achievement, with regular communication between tutor, pupil and parent.
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. 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.
