Prospective Parents’ Evening: Thank you to all prospective parents and students for your interest in viewing Abbs Cross so far. We are currently making considerations as to how best to offer the chance for viewings of the school to take place. We will post further updates on this page once we have finalised our plans.
We are currently unable to offer any school tours during the day due to the social distancing measures we have in place for students and staff.
