Senior Leadership Team

Head Teacher

Mrs Louise Sandy


I have taught at Abbey School since 1995, working part time whilst bringing up my family. I was a Deputy Head at Burton Bradstock near Bridport for 5 years before I had my children. I really enjoy leading the Music at Abbey. We are very proud of our Choir, Band, Hand bell and Ukulele Groups. Any type of Creative Arts performing is eagerly explored here at Abbey School.

Mrs Sally Howard

Assistant Head

Special Educational Needs and Inclusion Co-ordinator



Mrs Howard began teaching at Abbey in 1997. Her role is an important one, helping us to ensure all pupils make progress and fulfil their potential, especially those whose needs or circumstances require adaptations or additional support. Her remit extends to individuals and groups, including disabled pupils, those who are academically more or less able, minority ethnic pupils, and many others.
