It has been an exciting start to the new academic year at Abingdon Prep School. Friday 23 September saw the official opening of its state-of-the-art music school, dedicated DT workshop, second science lab and new classrooms by Abingdon Chair of Governors and Old Abingdonian, Professor Michael Stevens.
The construction of this exciting new building has also enabled rooms within the existing school to be repurposed and renovated – this includes the creation of a new, double height library situated in the very heart of the school and a bespoke Pre-Prep hub.
Adding to Abingdon Prep’s already enviable facilities (the school has 30 acres of sports grounds, play areas and woodland, not to mention access to the facilities of its senior school), the new facilities have not only significantly enhanced its offering but, most crucially, will further improve the school experience for its pupils.
Headmaster, Craig Williams, says: “As a Foundation, Abingdon is passionate about ensuring our students and staff have up to date, modern, flexible and ‘fit for purpose’ facilities which will help them to succeed academically and support them pastorally in an ever changing world.
“Our new facilities, all built with sustainable credentials, will offer even greater opportunities to Abingdon Prep pupils both now and in the future.
“I am incredibly grateful to our Estates team who have overseen the project from fruition to completion and to Professor Michael Stevens for coming along today to officially open the facilities.”
