A Message from our Headteacher Mrs Claire Madeloso

I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to Archbishop Blanch School.

Archbishop Blanch is the only Church of England girls' school in the city and offers all students a dynamic place to learn in a caring, Christian way.

Our Christian ethos permeates through everything we do, underpinned by our Christian values. Archbishop Blanch is a happy school; our students are keen to learn, are respectful and develop into well rounded individuals. They are supported by creative teaching using the latest technologies to enhance their learning, alongside a strong pastoral support system. It is a pleasure to watch them mature into confident young ladies who will become our citizens of the future.

A Caring Christian Environment

"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
Archbishop Blanch Parent.
