Visiting a school during the day is by far the best way to get a ‘feel’ for everyday life and showing prospective parents around Abbey Road always fills me with pride. Please contact us to arrange a visit.

To support parents in learning more about our school, I would also advise the following:

  • Explore our 360-degree photographic tour . This will enable you to take a virtual ‘walk’ around our extensive grounds and facilities.
  • Visit our Foundation class webpage. Reception teachers write a weekly blog, which provides parents with a good snapshot of learning in our Rainbow and Sunshine classes. You will also find a short video uploaded here, which details a typical week in our Foundation Stage.
  • Read the ‘Welcome to Abbey Road’ booklet, shared via the ‘School Prospectus’ page of our website. This helps to answer some frequently asked questions about the school day here.
  • In addition, other photographs and articles shared via our website, our school newsletters and Twitter feed (@AbbeyRoadSchool) will hopefully also provide you with an insight into school life.

If you have any specific questions or want to ask us anything about life at Abbey Road  – we would be more than happy to chat or communicate via email on a more individual basis. You can get in touch using the ‘contact us’ tab on the website or by calling the school office (0115 9748055) or by emailing

Best wishes,

Ly Toom
