Milton Abbey School is a small, co-educational boarding and day school in the heart of Dorset. Our size and reputation for excellent pastoral care mean that at our School, the individual really does matter. Our education challenges and stretches each pupil within a caring and supportive environment. Our philosophy develops every girl and boy into fully rounded young people academically, culturally and spiritually.
Our mission is to find in all our pupils the spark that will light a passion, whether that is in the classroom, on the games field or in the theatre. Or it could be down at the School farm, as a passion for the countryside and outdoor education are key features of life at Milton Abbey.
Milton Abbey has a unique ability to deliver a bespoke education. We tailor each pupil’s education to make the most of their individual skills and talents in a way which nurtures and cultivates their natural abilities so that they can achieve the best possible results, both inside and outside the classroom.
Our School promotes individuality and the pursuit of personal strengths and preferences; care, guidance and carefully targeted support in learning is available wherever required, resulting in greater confidence and enhanced self-esteem. We inspire pride in pupils’ individual work, whether in sport, academia, the creative arts or in our range of outdoor and practical subjects. Milton Abbey offers parallel learning pathways to a common destination, giving pupils the opportunity to study GCSEs and A Levels alongside the widest range of vocational subjects in the independent schools sector.
Our small size allows for a great involvement in School life and greater opportunity for pupils to represent the School and to master a chosen subject or activity. Lasting and fulfilling friendships are forged, and everyone has the chance to get to know one another. Class sizes are small (averaging eight for the Sixth Form and twelve for the Lower School) so no one is overlooked or left behind.
A recent review by the Good Schools Guide said “Milton Abbey’s setting, countryside expertise and innovative mix of qualifications give pupils, some of whom may not have thrived elsewhere, a host of opportunities to shine – both inside and outside the classroom.” To see the full report click here
