Welcome to Barking Abbey School


Barking Abbey Sixth Form is a special place, a welcoming and supportive community of students and staff, committed to enabling you to achieve your potential and prepare for the years ahead. We are extremely proud of our reputation of high academic achievement, outstanding teaching and excellent support and guidance.

The progress made by our A level students is significantly above national and local averages. Given such excellent results, the vast majority of students progress to higher education, with many of our students achieving places at Russell Group Universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Our unique and innovative Sports Academy programme ensures students can access a full time sporting programme whilst still succeeding at the highest level academically.

We achieve outstanding results in many subjects because we have highly skilled and motivated staff who strongly believe in our school motto: “Give and Expect the Best.

We also ensure that our young men and women leave us with the skills and independence to take on the challenges of life beyond school. We therefore place an emphasis on developing a wide range of personal, social and leadership skills.

We look forward to you joining us for the next stage in your education.

Mark Lloyd, Headteacher

Additional support

All students have their own personal academic mentor who will expertly guide you through a structured programme aimed at preparing you for university applications as well as further developing your personal skills. Individual tutorials take place regularly so you can discuss your progress and receive advice on independent study.

We take great pride in our expertise when preparing students with their future plans. In addition to supporting students to academic success, we have a proven record in guiding students with their personal statements for UCAS applications.
