Wycombe Abbey is the top UK boarding school for girls. It was founded in 1896 by Francis Dove, who actively fought for equal opportunities for girls in the Victorian era. Wycombe Abbey is famous for its high academic performance, which is primarily based on girls' love of learning.

The school annually gets to the top of the ranks of educational institutions, and the indicators for passing the final exams are always one of the best in the UK. Girls perform in different disciplines, achieving excellent results in exams. The results of the GCSE and A-Level courses in 2018 were outstanding, 95.2% of all students on the GCSE course received A * -A grades. On the A-Level course, 84.3% received A * -A scores.

Pupils are given unlimited opportunities in the school, located on 170 acres of green areas, which are saturated with the tranquillity of rural life. Nearby is the city of High Wycombe, where girls get out at the weekend to go to the cinema, go shopping and take a break from class. London offers easy access from the school, and Heathrow Airport is just 30 minutes away.

The secret to school success lies in the fact that girls live at school and are in constant interaction with each other and with school staff. School policies are aimed at stimulating and inspiring girls throughout the school day, allowing them to reveal their talents and abilities. In the school community, each of the students is perceived as a person.

The school has about 650 students.
