Students at The Abbey have been given a fantastic opportunity of performing at the Formula One, British Grand Prix. With the event being televised, the performance will not only be seen by a 10,000 person live audience, but also by the millions of viewers watching at home. On the day, the performance will take place in a performance area in the middle of the Grand Prix track, at the centre of all the on-going action.
During the half term, the 48 students taking part in the trip were put through their paces in a week long rehearsal process, during which they were taught the routine by the professional choreographer from the external company leading the project, ‘Pro Excel’.
The students were in for a bit of a shock at the beginning of the week with the rehearsal process being similar to that of semi-professionals. They were pushed to their limits and challenged in ways that they hadn’t come across before. Katia, the choreographer, had extremely high expectations and worked each and every student very hard. Although the students found this difficult to handle in the first couple of days, by day three, each and every one of them had become accustomed to it and were taking on the challenge with everything they had.
On a very wet, rainy summers morning on Friday 17th June 2016. Abbey school hosted their annual swimming gala for years 7 and 8. This competition is a House event where students compete against one another to strive for the winning place to beat the other houses. This year even though the weather poured down we had some great swimmers taking part, though our Elite Abbey swimmers stole the show with outstanding performances competing against each other for the gold medals.
The overall results were:
1st – DISCOVERY

Mrs Aribi has allowed our year 7Frg and 7Spg to make contacts with young French and Spanish students of their age.
First our contacts with Hazebrouck has been maintained over the years after a series of exchanges visits and this was renewed this year with a class of year 7 being able to write in French to students, who replied to them in English.
They talked about their family, home and school life following the curriculum taught in class.
Same was achieved by Mrs Aribi who made contact with a new school in Seville, Spain. Students exchanged letters writing in Spanish about their family, home and school life and received letters written in English from their Spanish students.
A collaboration between the science after school club, and the technology department created 3D particle models to represent solid, liquid and gas. This involved a lot of time and planning and even a few lunchtimes. The end result as seen above, can be used in future science lessons.
Many thanks to: David Mabb, Henry Cook, Emily Smith, Lloyd Bertram, James Webb, Mr Gadd and Mr Moore.

The Dover Athletic Academy in partnership with The Abbey School were crowned the best academy team in the country last night after their 5-1 win against Leatherhead in the Football Conference Youth Alliance final.
Two goals from Kyron Lightfoot and a goal each from Ira Jackson, Alfie Paxman and Ben Cardwell saw the academy team storm to victory at the ground of Sutton United FC on Wednesday (25). Kyron Lightfoot was named the man of the match for his outstanding performance on the night, when he scored two goals and assisted in two more.
Speaking after the victory, manager Mike Sandmann said: “I couldn't be more proud of the academy players today after winning the final. Their development from the start of the season to now has been incredible. They deserve full credit for the win and their work ethic and determination to improve throughout the season has been a pleasure to see.”
Sandmann said that after two years with the academy side, some players would be going into Dover’s first team for pre-season, with the aim of progressing to the first team using the skills they had learnt at the academy.
