I am delighted to offer you a warm welcome to Wycombe Abbey. I am Rhiannon Wilkinson, Headmistress, and I regard it as an enormous privilege to lead one of the world’s most successful girls’ boarding schools. Wycombe Abbey is an outstanding School by whatever criteria you may choose to judge educational institutions.
Wycombe Abbey has a long tradition of academic excellence and is consistently one of the country’s top performing schools in public examinations. Our pupils gain admission to competitive courses at leading universities throughout the world. At the same time we are proud to promote a love of learning for its own sake – not just for utilitarian purposes. We are committed to providing a very wide range of opportunities for intellectual interest and development outside the classroom. Wycombe Abbey fosters a culture of high expectations and the importance of trying your best at everything. Everyone works hard and is comfortable about learning from experience and the occasional mistake!
At the heart of the School’s success is a total commitment to the development of good, caring human beings through our proactive, individualised pastoral care. Everyone at Wycombe Abbey is part of a happy and close-knit community. No one gets lost in the crowd – everyone is known and cherished as an individual. We want the best for all our pupils.
In addition, the School provides a rich and varied programme of co-curricular opportunities throughout the week, including Music, Sport, Drama, Dance, outdoor education as well as an extensive range of other pursuits. These opportunities are all hugely enjoyable in themselves but they also help girls to develop confidence and the plethora of skills they will require to be successful and happy in the demanding and ever expanding global workplace. Wycombe Abbey can confidently say it offers a rounded holistic education, and all in the wonderful surroundings of 170 acres of magnificent parkland.
