  • A Highly Coveted Private School in Manchester

    Discover Abbotsford Preparatory School, made up of confident, inquisitive, and successful children who achieve excellent results regularly.

    We are delighted to be rated an ‘Outstanding’ school by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), and this is down to a love of learning which is instilled from an early age with high-quality teaching and an environment where your child will feel valued and happy.

    Based in Urmston, we have earned the reputation as one of the most sought-after independent schools in Manchester. We pride ourselves on our small class sizes, in which children thrive through our low student-to-teacher ratio, allowing them to receive the attention necessary to succeed during life at Abbotsford as well as life beyond. Our focus is on the personal endeavour of our pupils, in which our individualised approach to teaching enables our pupils to truly thrive.

    This is what Ofsted had to say about us:

    ‘Pupils display excellent attitudes to learning; they are inquisitive and eager to learn. They support and celebrate each other as learners. The quality of teaching and learning is outstanding – teachers and teaching assistants enable pupils to realise their potential and prepare them exceptionally well for the next stage of their education.’ Ofsted report – June 2017.

    This is what the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) had to say about us:

    ‘An excellent school in every aspect – the quality of pupils’ achievements is excellent and pupils have excellent aptitudes for learning.’ ISI report – 2014. 

    Abbotsford is dedicated to continuing to provide our pupils with an outstanding education within a nurturing and secure environment. Come and encounter for yourself the magic unfolding at Abbotsford and see what makes us stand out from the rest.

    We very much look forward to seeing you.
