Other Information: Abbotsholme is a leading private boarding and day school in Staffordshire in the heart of England, close to the border of Derbyshire. Our site is designed to give both the parents of our pupils, and the pupils themselves, as much information as possible about what is happening at Abbotsholme. We will be updating the site on a daily basis so you might like to add the site to your "favourites" folder. Our "News" section is RSS enabled, subscribing to the RSS feed is the best way to stay intouch with news from Abbotsholme. The site is evolving and much more will be coming soon. To help you navigate around the site here are a few pointers: Background íV we hope you can take the time to read a little about the History of Abbotsholme private boarding and day school. Dr Cecil Reddie, our founder, was a fascinating man, who was ahead of his time in so many ways. To understand our Philosophy is to understand what we aim to achieve here at Abbotsholme School. Our internationalism is reflected in our membership of the Round Square organisation. School Life íV take a look at our daily routine and find out more about what goes on both in the classroom (Academic Programme) and beyond it. This section includes details about our renowned Outdoor Education department, how we are involved on the Farm and the Equestrian Centre, what Sport we play and how we develop Creative expression. Our Community íV Find out some more about our Juniors, Seniors and Sixth Form, take a look at what's in store for our day, flexi, weekly and full Boarders. Learn a bit about The Abbotsholmians' Club and see what the Parents' Association gets up to. There's also a Who's Who section to help you with who does what on the staff team. Abbotsholme caters for a broad ability range. Academic standards are high with the majority of Sixth Formers going on to their first choice university, including Oxford and Cambridge. The curriculum at Abbotsholme aims to develop critical and creative thinking and self-discipline. We encourage our pupils to find their own strengths and preferred methods of learning but within a structured and supportive framework. A staff:pupil ratio of around 1:15 enables teachers to give the attention each student needs. In addition, the tutorial system at Abbotsholme ensures that each pupilíŽs progress is continuously monitored, in terms of effort and achievement, with regular communication between tutor, pupil and parent. A flexible system of sets and options ensures that all pupils are taught in small classes and progress at a pace which is appropriate to them. By the time they enter into the Sixth Form, students have developed a self-motivated academic discipline and a balanced approach to broader aspects of learning. As a result, the transition to Higher Education is for many a natural progression, with the foundation of independent study already in place. Pupils from overseas are a valued part of the Abbotsholme community. They are fully integrated into the student body and participate in both the mainstream curriculum and the extensive extra-curricular activity timetable. Non-native speakers are offered language support throughout their time at Abbotsholme. There are regular excursions focusing on exposure to British culture, as well as meetings with overseas students from neighbouring schools. The I.G.C.S.E. in English as a Second Language is offered to foreign students entering Years 10 and 11. Those entering the Sixth Form are coached for the I.E.L.T.S. exam in Academic English. All Abbotsholme students are fully supported throughout the University application process. In the last three years, of our foreign students wishing to study at university level in an English-speaking country, 100% were accepted and took up their chosen degree course. This year our E.A.L. students have taken up places in universities across the United Kingdom and in Australia.
