Ofsted said “pupils happily attend George Abbot School. They respect their teachers and behave well in lessons. Pupils take their studying seriously and try to get the most out of their experiences at school. Teachers expect a lot from pupils”. Furthermore “in mathematics, pupils deepen their knowledge and understanding because the curriculum is very well planned, and teachers provide pupils with highly demanding work” (December 2019).
