Abingdon Consortium for Education is a unique partnership of three secondary schools and a Further Education College. We want every young person attending secondary school and college in Abingdon to have access to an outstanding education. The Abingdon Consortium works together to achieve these high standards across the town, transforming the life chances of our young people and strengthening our community.
The continuing success of the ACfE came through loud and clear with record results in 2016. The percentage of students across Fitzharrys, John Mason and Larkmead schools achieving at least 3 A* or A grades has improved on last year’s record, and is once more above the national average. AS results in Abingdon show great promise for the future, bucking the national picture of uncertainty and rising 14% at A-B. This means that the achievements of ACfE students compare very favorably to other Oxfordshire schools and to those across the country. See our Abingdon Consortium A Level press release 2016 for more info.
These results show the strength of the collaboration across Abingdon, with everyone working together to share the best teaching, expertise and resources for the good of all our students in the town.
With over 375 students completing their A Levels, ACfE is the third biggest school Sixth Form in Oxfordshire. Alongside the range of courses offered by Abingdon and Witney College, the Consortium means that students in Abingdon and beyond have access to a broad range of qualifications and opportunities. The secondary schools also work closely with the Abingdon Primary Partnership.

- A rich range of resources, courses and experiences
- A forum for sharing the very best teaching and learning expertise across Abingdon
