Everything is possible for one who believes"
Mark 9:23

Church of England

Abbey CE Academy is a Church of England school, and forms part of the Diocese of Peterborough. Our church values permeate all aspects of our school and our running, and forms a strong moral and ethical compass for all pupils of the Christian faith and other faiths to follow. We accept pupils of all faiths, but we do follow the values and virtues of the Christian faith (although there is a lot of cross over with other faiths).

We have strong links with our community and Holy Cross Church.  Rev Dawn delivers collective worship every Thursday to the whole school.

Our Vision

Together, anything is possible

"Everything is possible for one who believes, Mark 9:23"

Our vision is to create an environment where children are proud of their achievements and prepared to be confident, happy, life-long learners who make a positive contribution to their world and experience life in all its fullness.

Our Values


We try to be the best we can be.

‘He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work.’  Exodus 35 v35

We use imagination to help our students discover their talents and a love of learning through new experiences.


We take action to show we care.

‘Therefore, as God’s chosen people… clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience’

Colossians 3 v12

We care for others and positively act against injustice and inequality.


Nothing holds us back.

‘Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us’ Hebrews 12 v1

We have high expectations, encouraging our students to achieve with courage and determination.


We make the right choices.

‘The seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it and patiently produce a huge harvest.’

Luke 11 v15

We always do what is right, even when it is challenging and difficult.


We always lead by example.

‘Show proper respect to everyone’ 1 Peter 2 v17

We lead our lives as great role models in our school and communities.


We aim high all the time.

‘May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you might overflow with hope’ Romans 15 v13

We raise aspirations and inspire ambitions, giving our students the confidence and knowledge for life in a rapidly changing world

Christian Distinctiveness

As a Church of England Academy within the Diocese of Peterborough, we strive to nurture the whole child: mind, body and spirit.

Our Christian foundation is at the heart of our ethos and our aim is for that to come through not only in what we teach but how.

We have a strong, productive and supportive relationship with the local church and there are many opportunities for children to support their local community, as well as consider their role within the wider world.

Christian Values

One of the key themes in the last few years is how Christian Values are intrinsic to our lives.

The children have had the opportunity to explore them through a “collapsed curriculum” day, to reflect on them during Collective Worship and to consider how they have an impact on daily life in the classroom.

We want the children to leave the Abbey Church of England Academy knowing that they can have a positive impact on the world, and start living the values and attitudes that will change society for the better.
