Abbey Bake Off for the Macmillan Cancer Charity

DSC 2947

The annual Abbey Bake Off for the Macmillan Cancer Charity was an overwhelming success with over 100 cakes being baked and brought to school on 28 September. This event is run by Sue Love, Mrs Blythe and Mrs Page and is a staff only event for a bit of fun and a sweet treat for all staff!

 

Mr Dickens, aka Paul Hollywood, took on the mammoth task of judging the cakes - from Best Effort, Best Traybake, Best Muffin and Best Looking! He took this in his stride, "this cake is delicious, fabulous layers!".

 

Mrs Sands, a parent of Abbey students, swept the awards with her stunning range of cakes - from Salted Caramel (Best Tasting), Victoria sandwich, carrot cake and many, many more! She also produced an amazing lettuce bouquet for those staff who are watching their figures as well as a gooey chocolate tray bake for the Vegan staff members!

Tryangle AwardTry Angle Award 2017

 

Dan Davies has received a Try Angle Award for Community Action for his work in school for Remembrance Day events. He has been nominated by the Try Angle committee for a Regional Award. Dan will be attending this ceremony later this year. Dan has completed his sixth form studies at The Abbey but has been back on hand to support our younger students prepare for this years Remembrance Event. Without Dan's input the parade last year and setting up our service this would not be happening again. 

 

We wish Dan all the best for the Regional Final and look forward to him attending our Remembrance Service on Friday 10 November.

Performing Arts Physical Theatre

Physical TheatreYear 13 BTEC Level 3 Performing Arts students put on an evening of Physical Theatre.

They had devised a piece using a stimulus and centred it around our obsession with taking selfies, our online image and our reliance on getting approval from our online friends. The theme of cyberbullying was also tackled in an unusual way - do we seek attention by posting so many photographs online? Do we invite negative comments by doing this? Are we able to handle our emotions when comments are not positive? 

Rebekah Wotton and Georgia Collins, worked with Year 9 students - Phoebe Wells, Shannon Howath, Shelley Brazil and Ellie Fuller. These students have only been in GCSE Dance since September but they gave up their free time to work with KS5. Their performances were impressive and really gave the performance a different dimension. Ms Nunn, our new Dance teacher, worked with them and was pleased with the confident performance skills they displayed.

Sean studied at The Abbey School during 2010-2012 whilst playing for the Football Academy.

"This is a fantastic achievement for Sean and we couldn't be prouder at the Football Academy. The Academy provides students with the opportunity to improve and develop as footballers whilst gaining an excellent education"

 

"Sean is a great example for any young players coming through the system that has aspirations of being a professional footballer"

 

"Sean's work ethic has made his dream a reality and we will continue to track his progress"

 

The Abbeys Schools Ethos of 'Be the best you can be' could not be more fitting at the moment.

 

Well done Sean!
