Wycombe Abbey School
Academic excellence, empathy, integrity
A pioneering Cambridge graduate, Miss Dove, founded Wycombe Abbey to offer girls an education equivalent to that enjoyed by boys. 125 years on, the school maintains its reputation for academic excellence, fostering curiosity, innovation and a delight in learning. The Head, Jo Duncan, wants Wycombe girls to learn how to ‘form meaningful relationships; to display good judgment; to demonstrate courage and integrity; to be emotionally resilient and to have a deep sense of respect for themselves and others”, so they are prepared to navigate a competitive world. With master classes in dance, chances to direct or act and to sing or play an instrument or play top level sport there are plenty of ways to acquire these skills.
