Welcome to Abbey School

We take great pleasure in introducing our school to you. We are lucky enough to have very special young people that come to Abbey, all of whom have an Education Health Care Plan. Lots of our young people have difficulties in learning and we pride ourselves on supporting each of them in the best possible way so that they achieve their full potential.

Our team feel privileged to be part of your child’s life—maybe only for a brief moment. But we know that this moment in time has impact on your child’s life— We never underestimate the impact our footprint has on the journey of both your child and their family.

#teamabbey is a collection of individuals who share a culture, an identity, an ethos and belief system and more so a collective passion and purpose beyond anything you may have faced before.

“Inspire, Believe, Achieve”

We believe that inspiring young people with their learning, by giving them a sense of belief they will achieve their full potential. It is this belief that runs through the core of the school in everything that we do. On visiting our school you will see amazing immersive learning environments that young people are completely engaged in. Every young person leaves Abbey as a rounded individual ready for their next stage in life. We have a fantastic team of professionals that work in a very personalised way with each young person and we believe that it is essential that we are the ‘relentless family champions’ that you will need to support your child. We hope you will take the time to visit us at Abbey and choose to be part of our exciting journey. #teamabbey
