Abington School 是位於英國牛津郡的名校，牛津郡人口大約在165,000左右，其中153,900住在中央城區。Abingdon School是區內首屈一指的男校，不單在學術成績上，更多是他們努力去幫助學生達到最好，雖然學校對收生有要求，但學校同時承諾會把學生教導到最好。所以多年來都是牛津郡家長入學首選，要提早最少一年申請，學校宿位較少，而申請國際學生眾多，亦是Abingdon School 的一個特色。
此校十分注重學生的全能發展，不但要求學生有很好的學術成績，還要求他們有多方面的課外活動包括：動態活動及靜態活動。他們稱此教育方式為” 另一半The Other Half”。此教育方式十分受大學歡迎，因為能訓練學生成為全能學生，令他們更快學會獨立和面對挑戰。
Abingdon aims to educate boys and young men of talent and potential to the highest level, so that each may take his place in adulthood, able to compete with and meet with confidence his contemporaries from across the world. This is achieved by offering the highest quality academic programme which is enhanced by the diversity and breadth of an extensive “Other Half” and supported by meaningful and appropriate pastoral care.
A young man leaving Abingdon should be well qualified so as to access the best possible university education and careers thereafter, be adaptable and flexible, be able to communicate with others from all walks of life, be civilised and courteous
in his dealings with others and be secure and content with the individual he is.
He will have a sense of what his values are and an awareness that life is not just about himself.
The ‘OTHER half’
For an independent school Abingdon is not a place with a great deal of “public school” jargon. However, one piece, unique to Abingdon, is its use of the term “The Other Half” to denote the extra-curricular side of school life. It encapsulates the notion that what a boy does in the classroom is only half of the reason
he’s at the school and only half of what is going to be important to him as he matures.
Abingdon’s “Other Half” is impressive by any standards with its range of over 100 activities. Sport no doubt is of huge importance to many boys but there is also a vast range of pursuits for them to get stuck into whilst off of the sports
field. For some, it is the excitement and comradeship of the CCF and DoE, for others it’s the cerebral challenges of Chess and Board gaming. One really distinctive feature of life at Abingdon is that a boy does not have to dedicate himself to one thing: he can have a variety of identities.
