Houses competed in Lip Sync battle challenge - Owen Gregory Year 10 Pioneer was crowned as 2017 champion after fighting off tough competition.
Mr Dannell hosted proceedings which saw over 200 students in the audience, all had donated to Children in Need charity for the privilege.
Sixth Form Leadership team ran a sweet and cake sale raising lots more for good causes.
Mr Storey bravely opened the show to the cheering crowds and after the student competition the Performing Arts Department, Miss Rogers, Mrs Page and Ms Nunn tore up the stage with their song/dance version of "You Don't Know Me!" - this went down a storm!
Thank you to all the competitors and congratulations to Owen Gregory!
A select group of keen rugby players in Years 8-11 had the incredible opportunity to attend the England vs. Argentina Autumn International at Twickenham on Saturday 11th November.
This was a great experience for the students; being immersed amongst 81,000 rugby fanatics at the home of English rugby.
A very tense and physical game was witnessed and the highlight was seeing England score just metres away from our seats. This has become an annual trip so any rugby fans should keep an eye out and continue to work hard in rugby at school.
A big thanks to Mr. Long and Mrs. Walpole for organising the trip and taking the students.

Friday 10 November, 11am - every student and staff member joined together to honour the 2 minutes silence.
Each year, we produce six school newsletters. These are an excellent way to draw attention to some of the many activities that go on in school and of course a great way to highlight some of the students' excellent work.
On Tuesday 14th November coaches from the RFU held a Rugby Festival at Folkestone Rugby Club. The day consisted of games and coaching for all girls who attended the day. Girls Rugby is at its peak at the moment with England ladies winning the finals of the Ladies World cup recently. Kent RFU are encouraging many talented girls to attend clubs local to them, if they show interest and talent in this sport.
Abbey school Girls did us proud once again at this festival, performing and playing at such high standards. They work well as a team in their own age group and listened carefully to new coaching tactics from the coaches.
If, as parent or guardian of a student attending this school, you require a paper copy of the information on this website, we shall provide this free of charge.
