The academic and extra-curricular development of our primary aged children depends to a great extent on us allowing them to explore, choose and experience as many activities, skills and challenges as possible. Wycombe Abbey School is focused on preparing children to be confident, happy, responsible, highly skilled and globally mobile. More than ever before, the children of today need to learn to be expert lifelong learners and creative, collaborative problem solvers in order to flourish in their future lives and careers.
Young children are natural enthusiasts. They want to try everything! That’s fine with us. We are committed to providing a very broad and varied programme of experiences and extra-curricular activities for every child. Our school day runs from 8.00am to 3.00pm with 9 lessons in the day. Children are encouraged to stay on for our extra-curricular enrichment program which is available from 3.00pm to 5.00pm. The school has a mandatory school bus policy, so children are able to arrive and leave by school bus.
Over the years they spend at the school, our pupils have the opportunity to experience an inspiring choice of different extra-curricular activities, from individual sports such as Swimming, Taekwondo and Wall Climbing to team sports such as Ball Hockey, Basketball and Tennis. There are opportunities for extra Art, Chinese Calligraphy and Culture, Music, Classical Ballet and Musical Theatre as well as Science Clubs and NASA Education. Extra English and Chinese classes are provided by invitation.
Our pupils develop ambition and resilience and, through the breadth of experiences they enjoy in our extra-curricular programme, they develop into confident, well-balanced and happy young people, ready to embrace the challenges of top-flight secondary education wherever in the World they may go.
