“Battle Abbey School, an independent School in East Sussex, is extraordinarily special. A glimpse through its enchanting gatehouse tells you that you are not only in a historically significant place, but also in a school that has an incomparable character. Battle Abbey’s ideal size, wonderful pastoral care, impressive facilities, continuity of education from Nursery to Sixth Form and holistic approach allied to its warm, good humoured and highly supportive working environment make for a very inclusive and unique educational establishment. The School manages to blend traditional values to new, innovative thinking in teaching and learning whilst still providing a wide range of extra-curricular activities and many opportunities to support and serve the local and wider community. It has a proven track record in many curriculum areas and has developed an enviable reputation for adding value academically in a mixed ability setting. Just under 50% of our Sixth Form leavers go on to Oxford, Cambridge or Russell Group Universities.

Battle Abbey’s ethos is highly distinctive and focuses on nurturing a close-knit family atmosphere, encouraging active participation from its students, promoting an international perspective through its boarders and encouraging self-respect, self-confidence and compassion for the needs of others. It is the sort of school where students settle very quickly and contribute willingly and positively whilst developing a genuine pride in their school and a real passion for their learning.

I very much hope that this website gives you at least a flavour of our School and I would urge you to come and visit us if you can and meet our engaging and talented students and staff”.
