Round Square at Abbotsholme

RS Dec 2014 (5)   

Abbotsholme is a member of the Round Square, and one of only 14 Schools in the UK.

Round Square is a world wide association of schools which share a commitment to personal development and responsibility through service, challenge, adventure and international understanding as part of a fundamental objective - the full and individual development of every pupil into a whole person. This commitment is very much reflected in life at Abbotsholme both within the curriculum and beyond the classroom.

Our membership offers numerous exchange opportunities enabling pupils to experience other languages and cultures for periods up to three months. We regularly welcome overseas pupils of various nationalities to Abbotsholme, recognising the importance of fostering global relationships and respecting the diversity of culture, religion and language throughout the world. Service Projects are also organised to countries all over the world. These have previously taken pupils as far afield as Africa, India and Thailand, in order to help the under-privileged residents of villages there by installing clean water systems and building school accommodation with facilities for the disabled.
