"A high achieving school for go-getting girls who are instilled with academic curiosity, a worldly knowledge and life skills, while placing emphasis on developing integrity, emotional intelligence and leadership"

About

A world leader in girls’ boarding education and a place where academic excellence, empathy and integrity thrive.

Ranked as the UK’s top boarding school (Sunday Times, Parent Power), Wycombe Abbey is a world-class establishment which strives to provide high academic achievement with a holistic and rewarding educational experience. Results are consistently impressive: 97.4% A*-B and 65.2% A*-A at A level and 96.5% A*-A at GCSE in 2021/22.  Our leavers go on to study subjects as diverse as Architecture, Aeronautics, Neuroscience  and Linguistics at Oxbridge and Russell Group universities, while Medicine, Law and Science/Engineering courses remain among the most popular. An increasing number of girls are gaining places at the best liberal arts colleges and Ivy League universities in the US, such as Harvard, Yale, Duke, Brown, Stanford, Columbia, MIT and Pomona, amongst others. Curiosity, innovation and academic risk-taking are encouraged and every pupil is given the opportunity to develop her passions.

Our diverse co-curricular programme aims to imbue in every girl the skills required to succeed, including creativity, emotional intelligence, teamwork and leadership. The girls enjoy outstanding facilities.  There is a rich and varied programme of activities throughout the week, including music, drama, dance and outdoor education as well as an extensive range of other pursuits, such as Model United Nations, solar-powered motorsport racing and even bee-keeping. These opportunities help girls to develop the confidence and skills they will require to be successful and happy in the demanding and ever-expanding global workplace, preparing them to be successful leaders – of themselves and others.

Wycombe Abbey offers a modern approach to boarding in the wonderful surroundings of 170 acres of parkland with quick and easy access to London and its international airports. Over the next decade, we are investing in new facilities that will transform our magnificent grounds for the benefit of every pupil at Wycombe Abbey.

The next ten years will see the renewal of all our boarding accommodation, the refurbishment of the main Abbey Building and a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) centre.

At the heart of the School’s success is a total commitment to the development of good, caring human beings through proactive and personalised pastoral care.  Everyone at Wycombe Abbey is part of a happy and close-knit full boarding community where each girl can grow as an individual and form deep and lasting friendships.
