Welcome to Abbey School in Torquay, Devon

If you have a young family to educate and live in Torbay, South Devon in the South West peninsula of England, you are very fortunate for more than geographic reasons. At the heart of St. Marychurch in Torquay is Abbey School, a happy and flourishing Independent preparatory day school and nursery. We provide excellent all-round education for infant and junior children to 11 years, and early-years nursery care for babies and pre-school children. We are a Torbay Nursery, a Torbay Infant School and a Torbay Junior School. We are right here on the spot for you, and you need look no further!

As an independent school educating children in our nursery, infant and junior departments, you will find us small yet dynamic. All of our children are valued and the development of happy and independent learners is our focus. We expect high standards in all we do and are committed to quality care, teaching and learning.


An invitation to Open Day

October 2013

Our open days this October were hugely successful. Thank you to all who attended and cheered our winning uni-hock team, Buckland. Our congratulations go to the very determined players in Buckland and all the participating team players. It was a first class tournament. Thanks also to the parents who entertained us all by forming two teams and playing each at the end of the house match. Well done!

We look forward to the children who visited us on our open days perhaps joining us in the future.

We are delighted to show our school and activities to visitors, who are always amazed at the number and quality of our facilities and the standard of our work.

If you are looking for a school for your child, why not bring them to join Abbey children who are all ...

Learning to love learning!


Meet the Team

Welcome to Abbey School Torquay

Mrs Sylvia Greinig


The main focus of my work lies in helping children to learn how to learn, and amongst everything else we do in our industrious and cheerful primary school, this is something we encourage in all our pupils. My desired outcome for Abbey School is to develop independent learning in all or our pupils. More >
