New facilities strike right note at Abingdon Prep School

The new school year has seen the opening of a state-of-the-art music school, as well as new classrooms, science lab, and expanded library

Abingdon Prep School has marked the new school year with the opening of a raft of major new facilities.

The chair of governors, Professor Michael Stevens, was on hand on 23 September to cut the ribbon on a state-of-the-art music school, comprising a classroom, six practice rooms, and dedicated storage for instruments.

The new development also houses a second science laboratory, design technology workshop, and four new classrooms for years five and six.

“Our new facilities, all built with sustainable credentials, will offer even greater opportunities to Abingdon Prep pupils both now and in the future,” said school head, Craig Williams.

Besides the new-builds, this month has also seen the unveiling of refurbished facilities. The fully renovated library has doubled in size to host dedicated spaces for teaching, break-out zones and quiet reading, while a new multi-use hall for pre-prep includes areas for computing, drama and learning support.

“As a foundation, Abingdon is passionate about ensuring our students and staff have up to date, modern, flexible and fit-for-purpose facilities which will help them to succeed academically and support them pastorally in an ever-changing world,” added Williams.
