The Abercorn Community


Who attends Abercorn?

We are proud of our diverse school community the majority of whom live locally to the school sites.

How many students attend Abercorn?

Abercorn School has on average 350 pupils across the three sites of Early Years, Pre-Prep and Prep.

How does the School help with the transition of new students?

We recognise that transition can be worrying for new pupils and parents, in order to ease the process contact details of other pupils in the class are given, and parents are encouraged to arrange play dates as soon as possible. We arrange for the new pupil to visit the school before starting to meet the class teacher, and if school is in session, the children. The first few days we assign a “buddy” to mentor the newcomer. Meanwhile the Friends of Abercorn class representative will be in contact with the parents to welcome them as well. Everyone usually settles in very quickly!

Is there much parental involvement?

Every parent is automatically a member of the Friends of Abercorn. This organisation is very active in the school, providing many social events for parents and pupils as well as assisting with school activities such as sports days and plays. It also interacts actively with the local community. Individual parents are welcome to come on class trips and are invited to come into the classroom if there is something they wish to share with the class: something unique to the family’s culture or perhaps a description of a profession.
