Abbotsholme School

Abbotsholme offers an holistic and progressive education within a nurturing environment.

Abbotsholme is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2-18. It is set within 140 acres of idyllic countryside on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border. The site includes a 70-acre working farm, equestrian centre, theatre, rock climbing centre, outdoor swimming pool and synthetic pitch. Class sizes are small to cater for individual focus.

Pupils at Abbotsholme have the opportunity to succeed academically as well as excel and challenge themselves in an extensive outdoor education programme, including annual hikes and camps. Pupils learn resilience and life skills through the offering. The outdoor space that Abbotsholme provides is a safe haven for pupils and encourages wellbeing and a healthy state of mind.

There are separate boys and girls boarding houses and a log cabin village for the Sixth Form, to allow pupils to live independently before venturing into the wider world. All boarding facilities have small kitchen and lounge areas. Most rooms are for 2-4 people sharing. There are full schedules in the evenings and weekends with plenty of trips and
take-away and movie nights.


Boarding is available from age 9+. Abbotsholme offers a well-balanced curriculum that involves parents and the wider community, true to the values and finding principles.
