What the school says...
Abbey Gate College is a successful and happy school for pupils aged 4 -18. We emphasise the importance of building self-esteem in a caring environment. Award-winning gardens and the idyllic locations of Aldford and Saighton Grange ensure that children learn in a safe environment. Aldford School for Juniors boasts extensive playing fields and ecology park. They also have weekly use of the extensive facilities at the Senior School.
Investment in facilities continues with the next future development and extensions planned for the near future.
The extra curricular programme provides opportunities for pupils to experience challenge. The renowned Music Department provides unique enrichment with strong links to Chester Cathedral; the choir sing annually at St Pauls Cathedral and tour overseas. Drama, Sport and the Duke of Edinburgh Award are all thriving and outdoor adventure and leadership courses help to build confidence and teamwork.
Entrance examinations consist of: 4+ - Interview with parent and child. 11 - verbal, non verbal, quantitative and spatial, including a written English paper and an interview. ...Read more
