Situated a few miles south of Oxford, and within easy reach of London and international airports, Abingdon is an academically selective boys only school, ideally placed to welcome overseas boarders. The School combines over 750 years of history and tradition with a modern outlook offering a world class education that sees former pupils at the top of many professions, from academics, medics, lawyers, diplomats and industry leaders to musicians, authors and actors.


Each year our students go on to study at leading international universities in the UK and overseas. Students benefit from our specialist team of career advisors who mentor the Sixth Form on university applications, including studying abroad.

Abingdon School offers 25 subjects at A level and the sixth form timetable is flexible, enabling boys to take many and varied subject combinations. The timetable also allows boys plenty of access to Abingdon's extensive ‘Other Half’ (extra-curricular) programme where are over 120 activities to choose from and something to suit everybody’s taste from music, drama and a wide-range of sports to community service, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, a very successful film unit and numerous clubs and societies.


Boarding is a big part of Abingdon’s character, attracting international boarders as well as boys who live locally. The boarding facilities include three boarding houses which also have day boys as an integral part of them. Boys remain attached to the same house, and tutors, throughout their time at the school ensuring each boy is well known and cared for.
