Our first headteacher, John Robbins took up his post at Ramsey Abbey School 1656 and nearly four hundred years later, I am proud to lead its successor school, Abbey College, formed from the amalgamation of Ramsey Abbey School (14 – 19) and Ailwyn School (11 – 14) in 2006.

Abbey College may have a long and proud history but we are also a 21st century school providing our students with an education designed to help them thrive whatever their ability. 

We are also very proud of our students whose standards of behaviour are excellent and who show respect and courtesy for our staff who work very hard to help them achieve.

If you have secondary age children and are new to Ramsey, please come and visit us. Equally, if you are a parent with primary age children exploring secondary school options for your family, do not hesitate to contact us so we can arrange a tour.

With all good wishes,

Andy Christoforou
Headteacher, Abbey College
