Welcome from the Headteacher - Serving the community for over 50 years.
Abington Academy is a very popular high achieving school, based in and committed to the community. Our distinctive school badge links the school to Wigston Magna representing as it does the steeples of All Saints and St. Wolston’s Churches, recalling the town’s former name of “Wigston of two steeples”. We are extremely proud of our links with the local community, both in the past and in the present; the history of the school being able to be traced back to at least 1934, moving to its present site in 1954 and opening officially in 1957. Abington converted to an Academy school in 2012.
The most important priority of the school is to provide the highest quality education for every child within a safe, caring and orderly environment. To this end we are committed to meeting the needs of children by working in partnership with parents and by providing a wealth of experience and opportunities to encourage every child to achieve their full potential, be confident, responsible, independent and well educated individuals able to fulfil positive roles in society and to have a successful future. Our aspirations for the children are aptly summarised in our school motto “Strive to Succeed”.
Everyone at Abington makes every effort to provide each child with the necessary care and support so that they feel safe, happy and be successful. As stated by Government Inspectors, Abington is a “caring school in which pupils are enabled to mature and grow in self confidence as individuals” where committed and experienced “teachers set high standards” and “attainment improves markedly as the children progress through the school”.
We welcome your comments and any parental requests to visit and tour the school.
