The Abbey College Advisory Board




The Abbey College Advisory Board exists to improve the quality of provision at Abbey College by bringing in experts to advise our leaders on best practice. We believe Abbey College will benefit having an advisory committee of people with special expertise from the local community who can advise, from an external perspective regarding key issues.
