Sixth Form Open Evening

We are really looking forward to welcoming Year 11 students and their parents, from Abbeyfield and beyond, to our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 18th November at 6pm. There will be a short presentation before the opportunity to speak to subject staff about the wide variety of Level 3 qualifications we offer. We can’t wait to meet you and take the next steps on your educational journey together.

We are very much looking forward to seeing lots of Year 11 students and their parents at our Sixth Form Open Evening at 6pm on Thursday. At this time we would request that where possible students are accompanied by one parent / carer only in order to allow for greater social distancing. There is no need to book and we will host a second sitting for the presentation if necessary.

Outdoor Coats

Thank you to all parents for supporting us with our high expectations for uniform at Abbeyfield school.

We have been following the national discussion on social media regarding the colour of outdoor coats and safety implications. The safety and welfare of our students is a priority and so from after half term, we are removing the necessity for dark outdoor coats and would suggest that students ensure that if they are purchasing winter coats, that they consider if they would be easily seen by traffic and would suggest attaching a high viz strip to their bag and for cyclists in particular, maybe a high viz sash.

School Tours

Dear prospective parents/carers

We are now delighted to be able to start offering school tours. There will be 4 time slots throughout each day between 15-21 October. These will be limited to small groups and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. 

To ensure that your visit is safe and to manage the high level of interest, only one parent per household, and the prospective child/children may attend the tour. All visitors are also required to wear a face mask (unless medically exempt). To book and secure your school tour, please contact our on 01604 763616, or alternatively email

We look forward to seeing you soon.
