What being a RS school means to us

Our philosophy develops every girl and boy into fully rounded people academically, culturally, and spiritually, within a caring and supportive environment.  Milton Abbey encourages all pupils to have big ambitions, big achievements and big hearts.   Round Square as an organisation shares our philosophy, provides opportunities and enables staff and pupils to build sustainable relationships with like-minded communities. We also award a Round Square Scholarship each year to a pupil who takes a pro-active role in all areas of School life.
