Abthorpe Old School
Registered Charity 309804

In a delightful village, the Old School offers the opportunity to hire either part of - or the entire - venue. Great facilities are available for flexible use.

The building is adaptable for family celebrations, as well as corporate, council and other professional gatherings. For large events, we suggest our main hall - which can, for example, be turned into an impressive setting for a wedding - or, for smaller ones, our cosier meeting room.

We can accommodate a maximum of 90 people in the main hall.

The large hall can be easily turned into a magnificent wedding reception venue  
or an ideal space for a large meeting or social event, such as: a race night, quiz,
bingo, harvest supper

Our small meeting room can provide you with space, comfy chairs and tables for up to 20, this is ideal for a meeting or small social gathering.

Depending on your needs, we provide Wi-Fi Internet access, flip charts and excellent refreshment making facilities in a modern catering kitchen.

We have a marquee available for the courtyard to give you more space if you need it.

Our rates are reasonable and competitive; please contact our booking secretary Jan Miles, oldschool@abthorpe.net for more details and a quote.

We have been fundraising for the last six years to bring our beautiful school up to date. We have updated the electrics, refurbished our kitchen, which now includes a fantastic fridge with lots of storage, a water boiler for your teas and coffees and a fantastic range oven which can cook 90 breakfasts without any problems! The small room has also been refurbished into a clean and cosy meeting space. We have just completed a complete renewal of our toilets and provided disabled facilities so that everyone can enjoy our Old School.  

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support, we appreciate it very much.

Our fundraising efforts have now reached a grand total of 29,497.19  

Results are in from our Tesco funding bid, we came second. Thank you to everyone who donated their blue tokens, we have been awarded 2000.00 towards the Old School refurbishment. Fantastic result!  

Thanks to the Big Lottery we are happy to announce the installation of our new heating system, which we are delighted with.

We now have FREE superfast broadband (over 50Mbps) installed by Tove Valley Broadband with high capacity WiFi which provides this full speed service no matter how many people are using the facilities.

We are continuing to raise funds  for  the refurbishment of the big room, and we are one step closer with the heating going in, please read the forthcoming events below.
