Abingdon Preparatory School

Set in 50 acres just outside Abingdon, this highly academic prep strives to bring out the best in its 250 boys, whether they are shy and sensitive lads who need coaxing out of their shells or gregarious sorts. Much of the stress is taken away from the final years thanks to the fact that pupils follow the Abingdon Prep Plus rather than prepare for Common Entrance.

    Abingdon offers a fairly small but well-implemented bursary scheme that also covers new students entering Years 7 and 8, with 59 families across the school receiving up to 100 per cent day-fee remission in 2019-20. Overseen by the school’s bursary panel, the awards are means-tested and cover the teaching costs of an education at Abingdon, lunch and most books and materials. It is worth noting that boarding fees and some additional charges, such as trips, are not covered.

    Bursaries are not academically selective – although pupils must meet the baseline academic standards for acceptance – but are only available to UK families.
