A welcome message from Andy Christoforou, Headteacher at Abbey College

Andy Christoforou Principal


Welcome to Abbey College; your local school where every child is known as an individual and all children can achieve their ambitions. We believe a good education is crucial for the wellbeing and fulfilment of our students. This was highlighted in our most recent successful Ofsted inspection where the school was awarded Good in every category and achieved an overall Good status. We provide an excellent education and the best opportunities for the students in our care. As society continues to change, it is important that our school provides a safe and stable environment where all young people feel valued, can learn and achieve the best of their abilities. 100% of our parents last year said that they would recommend the school to other parents on Parent View, which is just one of the things we are very proud of.


In 2019, (the last time official examinations were taken), 68% of our students achieved the top 4-9 grades (the equivalent of the old A*-C) in both English and Maths, with over 50% attaining grades 5-9. Our collective aim is to ensure that all students experience happiness, while they are challenged to meet goals and achieve their dreams, alongside celebration, reflection, and tradition.

A student’s education is not a dress rehearsal; they only get one chance. I believe that high quality teaching, learning and engagement is at the heart of every good school. I look forward to continuing to work with the wonderful team at Abbey College, to ensure our students have the best opportunities to be successful.

At Abbey College, we run a wide variety of extra-curricular and leadership opportunities for our students allowing them to show their potential in many ways; from joining the Junior Leadership Team to becoming one of our Sports Leaders.

We are proud of our students and staff, so please come and meet us all and experience the College for yourself. To arrange a visit, please call or email and we will be delighted to arrange a personal tour for you.
