About Us

Our pupils consistently attain above national averages when tested at the end of Year 6. By setting high standards of excellence our teaching staff ensure that every child leaves us a balanced , confident and self- disciplined individual. They gain a sound understanding of core curriculum subjects and an awareness and experience of a range of all-round interests.

We are a Church of England school and the fundamental values of tolerance and love for one another runs through all that we do. We welcome children of all faiths and beliefs at our school. For a large school there is a strong family feel at Waverley Abbey. The staff, children, governors and parents all work together as a team. Relationships between staff and pupils are based on mutual trust and respect, and we forge strong and active partnerships with our parent body. This creates a positive atmosphere for everyone within the school community.

We actively encourage our children’s sporting interests and offer a range of clubs. Our pupils represent Waverley Abbey in competitions with other local schools. The school also offers a range of residential opportunities and class learning is often enhanced by an offsite visit or by welcoming a visitor to school. Children learn effectively through real experiences and we work hard to include this within our curriculum teaching.
