Wycombe Abbey School
Wycombe Abbey is a world leader in girls’ boarding education and a place where academic excellence, empathy and integrity thrive.
We are an exceptional place operating as a modern full boarding school for 655 girls and we are committed to the development of each one. Built on the firm foundation of more than 125 years of educating young women, our vision is to provide a world class education. We are excited about encouraging curiosity, bold ideas, innovation, leadership and a delight in learning – inside and outside the classroom.
Superb academic outcomes are the hallmark of a Wycombe Abbey education and girls regularly secure places at the most prestigious universities globally. However, we understand the importance of looking beyond the narrow confines of excellent examination results to define success. Our rich co-curricular programme includes an array of activities and opportunities, ensuring that every girl develops her passions and explores new possibilities. These experiences, in turn, help to build the skills, discipline and character that will support her future life.
Ultimately, schools are about people and at the heart of Wycombe Abbey’s success is our total commitment to pastoral care through boarding. The values of mutual respect, encouragement and trust underpin everything we do. In this happy and close-knit community everyone is known as an individual, friendships flourish and girls enjoy each other’s company all within the wonderful surroundings of 170 acres of magnificent parkland and modern, state-of-the-art facilities.
We are easily accessible with excellent transport links. It is about 35 miles west of London, 30 miles east of Oxford and a 30 minute journey from Heathrow Airport and a 90 minute journey from Gatwick.
