About Abbeyfield School
Abbeyfield School, part of the Creative Education Trust, is an 11-18 school, predominately serving the South East of Northampton. Through teamwork and a shared desire to support and challenge every student in order for them to achieve their personal best we are building on the 2016 Ofsted ‘good’ judgement and the very pleasing recent outcomes. We have high expectations and aspirations of ourselves and of our students. Our Quality First Teaching Charter ensures a focus on high quality teaching and learning. Alongside academic achievement we place a very high value on students’ social and personal development, equipping them with the life and employability skills needed for successful adulthood.
The school has a wealth of facilities that underpin the wide curriculum including; state of the art theatre, science lecture theatre, dance studio, drama studio, super learning centre designed for collaborative teaching, fitness suite, sports field, netball courts, basketball courts, gym and a full size sports hall. In the last few years we have been at the forefront of curriculum innovation and now offer our students an extensive and relevant curriculum choice.
Our mission is to develop the full academic, personal and social potential of each individual student. The School has a growing reputation for success, with our school slogan "Ambitious to Achieve" proposed by one of our own Year 12 students and our 6 school values - Respect, Resilience, Honesty, Responsibility, Creativity and Independence formed from a staff and student vote . We have high expectations of our students and are an inclusive community and welcome all students from all backgrounds.
This Ambition and community spirit throughout the school led to our Northamptonshire Secondary School of the Year Award 2019 (Northamptonshire Education Awards).
