Wycombe Abbey is committed to maintaining full boarding for the needs of modern families. Girls who enter the school at 11+ have their own Junior Boarding House. From the age of 11 to 18, pupils live in nine mixed-age Senior Houses, and in the Upper Sixth girls move into Clarence House, a purpose-built study-bedroom complex.

Many co-curricular and enrichment opportunities are on offer for girls across the age range. Our sports teams regularly reach national finals and the sports department offers more than 30 sports on a consistent basis. Our music department teaches more than 600 individual lessons a week and nearly every pupil plays an instrument if not two. The drama provision is equally impressive with numerous productions happening annually.

The School is ideally located to be able to enjoy a wide variety of activities with other independent schools including Eton, Harrow and Radley. The boys join the girls for dinners and dances. We also enjoy close relationships with the two boys’ grammar schools in High Wycombe, with our pupils and theirs co-operating in choirs, an annual Management Conference and other social and academic events.
