Senior School


The transition into secondary school is a key milestone in a child’s development.  At Abingdon House School & College, our Senior School students are presented with increased responsibilities, privileges and challenges to help them continue to develop skills and confidence to achieve independence beyond our doors.  We recognise that each student will progress at different rates, and they are strongly supported with this transition across all areas of the school.


Our Senior School students engage in a course of study that leads to a variety of opportunities for external qualifications, including Entry Levels, Functional Skills, core GCSEs, Arts Award and ASDAN.


Subjects are taught by subject-specific teachers and students are organised into groups to suit their ability.


The ongoing development of life, social and learning skills are enhanced with the introduction of career and employability skills.  These continue to be integrated into all lessons as well as ongoing distinct classes to support these areas of development. The skills acquired in these areas will form part each student’s portfolio of work to be used towards the attainment of qualifications at Key Stage 4.
