Schools And Education Providers
Abbeyfield School is an 11 - 18 school, predominantly serving the South East of Northampton, although students are welcome to apply for a place from across the town. The school enjoys excellent new buildings that meet the needs of learning in the 21st Century. It boasts a state of the art theatre that befits its status as the only Specialist Performing Arts College in Northampton. In the last few years we have been at the forefront of curriculum innovation and now offer our students an extensive and relevant curriculum choice. The new building reflects this choice with specialist provision for Construction; Hair and Beauty; Hospitality and Catering as well as the traditional academic subjects.
Our mission is to develop the full academic, personal and social potential of each individual student. The School has a growing reputation for success and has become increasingly popular in the local community. We have high expectations of our students and are an inclusive community and welcome all students from all backgrounds. At the heart of our ethos is the aim to instil in students self esteem, self respect and confidence.
This is a school identified in the Accessibility Strategy 2015 to 2017 that has special adaptations for disabled pupils over and above what would be required under general planning and building regulations and will have as a minimum:
- Physical access to all areas of curriculum (this may not be 100% of the school building).
- Suitable parking and entrance to the school.
- A changing facility for pupils.
- A designated area for physiotherapy/treatment as required.
- Specialist furniture e.g. variable height tables where appropriate and other physical aids.
