Milton Abbey School
Milton Abbey is a coeducational boarding and day school for 13 – 18 years committed to the individual, and delivers an education that is meant to challenge, stretch and develop young men and women into leaders and assured adults who possess confidence without arrogance.
The School lies in a wooded valley and occupies the site of a former Benedictine Monastery, founded over 1000 years ago. The two remaining Monastery buildings, the Abbey (which is used as the School Chapel) and the Abbots Hall (which is the used as the School Dining Hall), around which a Georgian mansion was built in the late 18thCentury, accommodates two houses Athelstan and Hambro. Hodgkinson sits on the back quad, whilst Damer and Tregonwell can be found along the main drive. Modern facilities on a par with much larger schools have been added, including a Music School, Art School, classrooms and laboratories, an ICT centre, a fully stocked library, Technology workshops, a 370 seat theatre, a 25 metre indoor pool, recreation hall and full sized astro-turf. The school has stabling for up to eight horses, a pheasant shoot, an ambitious self sufficiency market garden project, pigs, sheep, chickens and a working ferret hut.
The school is run by the Headmaster, supported by the Deputy Head, a teaching staff of 40 and has a capacity of 300 pupils.
