Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Abbot Beyne School, an 11-18 Secondary School and Sixth Form serving the Winshill community and surrounding areas.

Abbot Beyne School is an inclusive and aspirational school, focussed on delivering high quality learning and teaching in a safe and nurturing environment. We are committed to ensuring the academic success and well-being of all of our students at the same time as insisting on the highest standards of behaviour. We believe by working together we can ensure that when students leave the school they are fully prepared to become valued and valuable members of our global society.

We have an excellent team of staff who are committed to delivering an outstanding level of education. Our 100 minute lessons provide opportunities for active learning and deeper learning experiences. We integrate technology into all of our lessons and are one of fewer than 500 schools globally, and only 17 nationally, to have achieved Apple Distinguished School Status. This achievement is reserved for schools that meet the criteria for innovation, leadership and educational excellence. All students at the school have their own iPad, ensuring work is personalised and challenging and breaking down any barriers between home and school learning. This is especially important in these times of remote learning as more and more students are working from home.

‘Everyone a Learner. Everyone Learning.’ This is at the heart of our message to staff, students, governors, parents and carers. We want to develop a love of learning to ensure students become life-long, reflective learners. We offer a broad, balanced and ambitious curriculum alongside a significant number of enrichment opportunities. We inspire students to grow and develop in and out of the classroom and to fulfil their potential during their seven years at the school. We want our school to be at the heart of the local community and for our students to be as proud of our school and be as happy here as I am.

In these difficult times we are always here to support you and your children. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help in any way, whether this is academically or pastorally. Our dedicated team of teaching and non-teaching staff are always at the end of a phone or email, helping all of us in the community to move ‘Onward Together’.
