Welcome from the Head

Welcome to Abbey Gate College

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. Our wonderful Senior School and Sixth Form are enviably located in the historic Saighton Grange buildings, with stunning views across beautiful countryside towards the Welsh mountains and the Cheshire sandstone ridge; and our dedicated Infants and Junior School is just down the road in the charming and picturesque village of Aldford.

Our College is a unique, inspiring, and nurturing place to learn and grow, where our caring and committed teaching and support staff do all that they can to help our pupils to be the best that they can be.

We are a safe and friendly school community, where we look out for each other and where we work with each child’s individual interests, passions, and strengths; while also encouraging them to try new things, take risks, and be creative.

Our aim is to lead and coach our pupils during these critical, formative years, so that they may leave us at the end of Sixth Form having achieved the best that they can academically; and with a clear sense of who they are as a person and how they can go on to make a positive difference to our world in the uncertain future ahead – with courage and with compassion.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our pages.

Craig Jenkinson, MA (Oxon), PGCE, MInstLM
