Parent 1:

'As parents, we chose Abbotsholme Prep School for our two daughters six years ago.  From the very first day, both girls were really happy.  Kind and supportive friendships were built, which continue to flourish as they move further into the senior school.  The Prep team is formidable, armed with loads of energy and experience. Communication was excellent and the Seesaw app served as a great window into day to day activities taking place.  We also had superb support during Covid from the Prep team.  The small classes are a privilege and allowed the different learning skills of both our girls to be developed in a nurturing and positive way.  Lots of outdoor fun and stacks of dirty laundry remain my most lasting memories!  Thank you Abbotsholme Prep.' 

Parent 2:

'I would be very happy to give a raving review for the school (still getting to grips on the boarding!!!) but xxx is a different young man, from when he started in at the beginning of year 6. He is happy, enjoying school and actually talks about what he is studying, which he never did when he was at his previous school.  The teachers are firm but fair and we (parents) saw results very quickly in xxx progress and attitude.
The mixture of academics and non academic activities suits our child, ensuring that he doesn’t drown under mental pressure and allowing him to recharge his batteries.'

Parent 3:

'Abbotsholme Prep school has totally transformed my childrens' education, not only have they both come on academically but they are both extremely confident and happy boys. I love the fact that they get so many different opportunities to excel away from the classroom and every day is filled with variety and opportunity. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the school, which I have already, and friends are also extremely happy.'

Parent 4:

'Our daughter has recently joined Abbotsholme and has had an amazing start.   
Along with the core curriculum subjects our daughter has enjoyed hiking trips, gained Equestrian and farming skills and taken part in showcases produced by the amazing performance arts department.

The enthusiasm from the teachers is refreshing.  There is a genuine warmth and sense of community at the school.

Having received such a positive experience it has exceeded our expectations.'

Parent 5:

'We are really pleased we decided to move our son to Abbotsholme Prep School in Year 4.  Since joining, he is a much happier child and has flourished, especially by doing all the extra curricular opportunities that the school provides outside of the academic lessons.  He has grown in confidence massively and is now doing things we would have never expected of him.  The teachers/ staff are excellent, very encouraging and also approachable.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this lovely school to other parents. Abbotsholme really brings out the best in the children and provides them with a phenomenal,  all round education.'

Parent 6:

'I am absolutely delighted with the education my daughter is currently receiving at Abbotsholme. The school provides her with an outstanding, nurturing and creative education which incorporates academic rigour and personalised teaching, pastoral excellence and fantastic extra curricular opportunities which are weaved into the curriculum. Everyday is different and engaging and consequently my daughter skips into school. There is a wonderful family atmosphere, with each individual child known and supported by all staff. My daughter is able to converse with students from the Nursery up to the 6th form and enjoys the superb peer mentoring and support programmes in place to build her self esteem and confidence.  This has and continues to be the very best financial investment; my daughter is thriving, happy, confident and well grounded. I highly recommend an Abbotsholme education, which provides a strong commitment to promote and uphold ‘life in all its fullness’ because of the holistic, child centre approach to teaching and learning. My daughter is flourishing and loves all aspects of school life at Abbotsholme!'
