With its massive oversubscription, parents are clambering to get their children into this school and, once the boys are there, they too see its excellence. A superb standard of academia is at the core of this school, with boys taking 90.4% A*-B at A-Level across the arts and sciences, offering them breadth and flexibility with choices beyond.
An outstanding record indeed, but what is special about Abington is their commitment to their sporting and extracurricular excellence, looking beyond the academic curriculum to give these boys balance. This includes a range of activities including those in the arts – woodturning, digital media club, boardgaming – and community service. When it comes to sports, there is a whole host available with the boys excelling nationally at rowing and cross country among others. With Headmistress Lusk’s background in music, it is no surprise that this department is full of life and talent as well.
