An illustrious history
and a bright future

The Headmistress

Jo Duncan is a graduate of the University of St Andrews where she read for a joint degree in English Literature and Theology. She grew up in Northern Ireland and attended a girls’ grammar school. She undertook her PGCE at Homerton College, University of Cambridge. Her first teaching post was as a teacher of Religious Studies at The Laytmer School in North London – from there, she moved to Benenden School in Kent as Head of Department and Deputy Housemistress. Her first Headship was of Princess Helena College in Hertfordshire, followed by a second Headship at the Royal High School Bath, a GDST school. She was appointed Headmistress of Wycombe Abbey in September 2019.

Headmistress's Welcome

Much of my career has been spent in schools founded by remarkable, forward-thinking women. I am passionate about girls’ education and the important role which girls’ schools play in enabling young women to reach their full potential.

Wycombe Abbey is an exceptional place; it operates as a modern full boarding school for 640 girls and we are committed to the development of each one. Built on the firm foundation of more than 120 years of educating young women, our vision is to provide a world-class education. We are excited about encouraging curiosity, bold ideas, innovation, leadership and delight in learning – inside and outside the classroom.

Superb academic outcomes are the hallmark of a Wycombe Abbey education and girls regularly secure places at the most prestigious universities globally. However, we understand the importance of looking beyond the narrow confines of excellent examination results to define success. Our rich co-curricular programme includes an array of activities and opportunities, ensuring that every girl develops her passions and explores new possibilities. These experiences, in turn, help to build the skills, discipline and character that will support her future life.

Ultimately, schools are about people and at the heart of Wycombe Abbey’s success is our total commitment to pastoral care through boarding. The values of mutual respect, encouragement and trust underpin everything we do; in this happy and close-knit community everyone is known as an individual, friendships flourish and girls enjoy each other’s company, all within the wonderful surroundings of 170 acres of magnificent parkland.

I hope that girls who are educated at Wycombe Abbey, including my own daughter, will leave school as confident, articulate, independent young women who are able to navigate a competitive, global, technology-driven world successfully but who also have the qualities to make a positive difference through the lives they live. What are these qualities? I believe they are the ability to form meaningful relationships; to display good judgment; to demonstrate courage and integrity; to be emotionally resilient and to have a deep sense of respect for themselves and others.

It is my privilege to be Headmistress of this School and I warmly invite you and your daughter to come to see what makes Wycombe Abbey such a distinctive place for girls to learn and grow.

Mrs Jo Duncan

A brief history

Heritage

Wycombe Abbey was founded on the day of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee, 23 September 1896, by Miss Frances Dove, later Dame Frances, a trailblazer who promoted equal opportunities for girls in the Victorian age. The School was established in Loakes Manor which had been redesigned by the celebrated architect James Wyatt for the first Lord Carrington in 1798.

The first cohort of girls in 1896 numbered only 40 but in just three years, the School was full with 210 pupils. The underlying principle of Dame Frances’ educational thinking was education for citizenship. She argued that women should be taught corporate virtues, and that to be good citizens it was essential to have wide interests and a sense of discipline, as well as an esprit de corps.

After Dame Frances’ retirement, Miss Whitelaw led the School through the difficult years of the First World War. She later pursued her plans for the construction of the Chapel; the foundation stone was laid in 1926.

The School continued to grow in strength through its early years. It hosted lectures on topical intellectual subjects and recitals by celebrated musicians. Girls increasingly won places at Oxford and Cambridge. In 1929, in the time of Miss Crosthwaite, the School purchased the old Carrington family home, Daws Hill, and its 200 acres of land.

All activity was suspended with the arrival of the Second World War. For the next four years Wycombe Abbey became ‘Pinetree’, home to the US Army Eighth Air Force and the largest telephone switchboard in England. ‘Pinetree’ welcomed a number of high profile guests at this time. King George VI, Queen Elizabeth, Winston Churchill and Glen Miller and his band all visited the Abbey.

In May 1946 Wycombe Abbey re-opened with 170 arrivals. Of these girls only six were former pupils. After the School received a thorough cleaning it enjoyed a truly ‘fresh start’.

Further expansion took place in the 1950s with the addition of the Walpole Wing and the furnishing of the Dove Library. In the 1960s and 1970s the School launched a number of building projects including the gymnasium, the art block and the front wall and gates, as well as a separate house for the UVI, Clarence House. Thanks to numerous generous donations in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, the Lancaster Arts Centre and Archer Recital Hall were built and The Davies Sports Centre opened in 2004. More recently, in 2017 the School opened an atrium café, named The Courtyard, and two new Boarding Houses for Pitt and Rubens.

Outreach

We are committed to numerous and varied outreach initiatives which give girls and staff the opportunity to engage and collaborate across communities.

Wycombe Abbey has a long and established relationship with Cressex Community School, a secondary school in High Wycombe. Girls visit weekly to help students with literacy and other skills. A number of staff provide support by volunteering as governors and trustees. We also host a Summer School for those identified as ‘gifted and talented’, organising workshops in Drama, English, Music, Science and Sport.

There are links to a number of other local schools with whom we organise joint ventures, such as our annual Management Conference, our Women’s Leadership Conference, Careers Fair and annual debating competition.

We greatly value the links we have developed with local schools through Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. Wycombe Abbey is a hub school for the Bucks and Chiltern Ogden Schools Partnership. We regularly take science workshop activities into a number of local primary schools with our Sixth Form girls.

Girls and staff volunteer their time to support a wide range of charitable organisations, assisting local playgroups, retirement homes, secondary and primary schools for disabled children, riding for disabled people and the local hospice and elderly persons’ home.

The School also makes its facilities available to local schools and community groups. We are particularly proud of our partnership with Horizons, a local sports club for young people with a range of disabilities. Horizons meets at our swimming pool on a weekly basis. Both staff and girls volunteer.

Further afield, the School is proud to be linked with the first girls’ boarding school in Afghanistan. The School of Leadership Afghanistan (SOLA) educates more than 30 secondary aged pupils from across Afghanistan’s many provinces. We participate in a weekly ‘virtual exchange’ via Skype on a range of collaborative projects.
