About Abbotsford

Abbotsford Prep School - Helping Children Become Confident and Independent

If you're searching for a prep school that goes above and beyond to provide everything your child needs to excel and succeed, look no further than Abbotsford. 

As recently mentioned in the Manchester Evening News, we are proud to be one of the leading independent schools in the Trafford area! Rated ‘Outstanding’, Abbotsford has been judged as having the highest quality in education, behaviour and attitudes, and leadership at the school. With our exceptional 11+ provision, Abbotsford provides the necessary knowledge, concepts, skills, and discipline to equip children for further education as well as the ability to become confident and independent individuals for life during academia as well as beyond.

We pride ourselves on our reduced class sizes, enabling our skilled and dedicated teachers to fully get to know your child and truly support them on their academic journey and personal development. We know how important one's environment is in the formation of self, and this is why we aim to create a friendly and motivational environment, allowing our pupils to be happy and successful learners. 

As well as the academic excellence we provide, we offer a wide range of extracurricular activities and clubs, enabling our pupils to grow in self-confidence as well as becoming well-rounded individuals as a result of the lifestyle and education enjoyed at Abbotsford. Our pupils thoroughly enjoy sporting activities, school clubs, art, drama, and much more with our specialist teachers who are dedicated to providing a learning experience that truly makes a difference.
