The Abbey School
The Abbey School is a strong and vibrant special school with places for just over 100 students aged 11-16 years who have learning difficulties and additional needs. The Abbey is a member of the Weydon Multi Academy Trust (WMAT).
The Abbey School is committed to supporting each and every pupil to be the best they can be and enabling them to become valued and valuable members of society.
The Abbey School's motto is TOGETHER WE CAN:
- learn skills for life; take responsibility; enjoy learning and make progress; show respect; make safe and healthy choices; be motivated; manage feelings; and develop self awareness.
"The Abbey has been a fantastic and diverse experience as a trainee. Not only have I witnessed bundles of valuable expertise from the high quality teaching... the staff and students have made the transition into teaching in an SEN setting that much easier with the endless support and advice provided."
