Welcome

Be at a school that inspires, a school that wants you to succeed and gives you the confidence, skills and knowledge to believe in yourself, ready to make your mark on the world. 

Be a scientist, an architect or an entrepreneur. Be an Olympic champion, an artist or a musician. At Abbey Gate College, we want you to Be Someone.

We are the longest running, independent, co-educational school for pupils aged four to eighteen in Chester. The locations of both our junior and senior departments in the neighbouring villages of Saighton and Aldford, provide pupils with a feeling of space to help them develop academically and personally.
