Abbey Gate Prep School


Abbey Gate Prep School gives you a focused education built around your child. We were founded in 1910 and we continue to educate children to the highest possible standard. At Abbey Gate Prep we create an environment where our children are stimulated, challenged and motivated to learn. We prepare our children for the challenges of the grammar and independent entrance exams with children gaining places to The Kings School, The Queens School , Abbey Gate College and the Wirral Grammar schools.




Specialist sport teachers and accredited coaches join the staff to share their expertise in many different sports such as:

Tri Golf

During the Summer term:



School Life – Kestrels

Pupils StudingYear 5 and Year 6 are important years as children are prepared for their secondary school entrance examinations and national Key Stage 2 Tests. At the same time Abbey Gate strives to deliver a stimulating curriculum that provides our pupils with many opportunities to undertake practical and investigational work, whilst developing their communication and problem-solving skills.

As the children approach their final year at Abbey Gate, they are awarded greater responsibility, both in and outside the classroom.

They take on roles such as prefects, librarians and road safety officers to mention just a few. They are also given the opportunity to take part in a residential trip.

At Abbey Gate we have an open door policy and welcome feedback and suggestions at all times. If you have worries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Appointments can also be made to discuss anything in depth. We all want the very best for every child at our school.
