Who’s Who

The Abel Smith Team

The Abel Smith name is associated with a long history of personal endeavour and community involvement. Indeed, our school logo represents youthfulness, forward-thinking, and high expectations which encompasses the Abel Smith team perfectly.

At the heart of our school is a vision for our children based upon the curriculum they will experience, the attitudes and qualities they will develop, and the sensation they will feel being part of a fully inclusive school - but in order to have this vision, it has to be dreamed first by those who make the magic of education happen.

Our vision is energised through the adults within the Abel Smith team. Great teaching and learning is not just left to chance, it is deliberately practiced and worked, it is planned and developed, it is grounded in love and a passion to put the child at the heart of everything we do with courage, care, and commitment. Every member of the Abel Smith team holds the school values close to their hearts and as a result, continues the long history of the Abel Smith name.
