Abbot's Hill School is a happy and thriving community in which pupils are encouraged to aim high, to grasp opportunities, enjoy learning and make lasting friendships.

The school offers an all-round education for girls aged 4-16 years, and the Day Nursery & Pre-School caters for girls and boys from 6 months. Our happy and united community gives each pupil the opportunity to shine.

The school is set within 76 acres of parkland on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead, where our first-rate facilities provide space for outdoor sport and extra-curricular activities. Our Abbot’s Hill's historic campus offers modern and extensive facilities in a magnificent country setting.

Abbot's Hill has a strong record of academic success. Throughout the school, pupils are taught in genuinely small classes. Excellent teaching and personalised support ensure that everyone is inspired to exceed their potential and to thrive.

The broad curriculum is enhanced by a wide range of trips and activities to stimulate learning. Extra-curricular clubs offer a lively balance of music, sports, languages, debating, drama and more. In short, there is something for everyone!

At Abbot's Hill, we pride ourselves on our pastoral care. We give individual attention to each girl so that she will develop as a person, but also to ensure she succeeds. The sense of being part of an extended family is frequently commented on by pupils, parents and staff alike.

The school's ethos is one which places the well-being and success of the individual child at its centre, and this is reflected in many aspects of school life.

In such a nurturing environment, pupils grow naturally in confidence, are happy to embrace new challenges and eagerly take on increasing responsibilities. Pupils leave Abbot's Hill fully equipped to take on the challenges and opportunities life has to offer.

Abbot's Hill girls progress seamlessly from one stage of education to the next. They become fully equipped to take on the challenges and opportunities life has to offer.
