About The Abbey School Reading
The Abbey is a vibrant and welcoming community of almost 1,070 girls aged 3-18 years. Academic excellence is achieved in an environment that is diverse, inclusive and energetic, while an exceptional extra-curricular programme enables girls to develop their interests and talents. Girls are encouraged to strive for their best both intellectually and personally, and achievement is celebrated in all its many and varied forms.
At the heart of The Abbey community lies a shared enthusiasm for lifelong learning, underpinned by a relentless intellectual curiosity and spirit of discovery encouraged at every stage of the educational journey. Supported by a proactive and compassionate pastoral system, every girl from Nursey through to Sixth Form is encouraged to explore her passions, embrace new challenges and question her assumptions. The result is the development of free-thinking, confident young women equipped with the skills to build a meaningful future in today’s rapidly changing world.
Located within walking distance of Reading Station, the School provides an extensive coach network across Berkshire and Oxfordshire for both Junior School and Senior School girls. A range of scholarships are available, as well as financial assistance offered via means-tested bursaries.
The Abbey represents a unique and exciting opportunity for any girl with a desire to learn, where inspirational teaching and an ethos that promotes aspiration and balance provide the platform for a successful and fulfilling future.
“The qualities of pupils’ personal development is excellent. Pupils grow into self-confident and independent young people, supported by Christian values and an understanding of life in a multi-cultural environment.”
