George Abbot School is located on a pleasant site on the north-eastern side of Guildford, within 25 miles of London. It has a high academic reputation both within the county and nationally.
The overall aim of the school is to promote excellence, personal achievement and the realisation of each student’s potential irrespective of gender, race or cultural background.
The school has a mixed and completely comprehensive intake and is heavily oversubscribed with 350 students applying for the 300 spaces available in September each year. We currently have 1950 students on roll with around 450 in the sixth form.
George Abbot became an Academy on 1 July 2011 and is a founder member of the Guildford Educational Partnership (GEP) Multi Academy Trust. GEP Academies is the newly formed cross-phase Multi Academy Trust set up by George Abbot School and Boxgrove Primary School which now includes Kings College, Guildford, Sandfield Primary School and Fullbrook School. GEP believes that all schools are more effective when they work in partnership than when they stand alone.
For many years George Abbot has been an Accredited Provider for Initial Teacher Training and an International School. The school has acquired the prestigious Investor in People Award three times as well as the Artsmark Gold Award, also three times. The school has also been designated a National Support School. Mrs Carriett leads George Abbot as the current Headteacher.
