Auditions for the school production are taking place this half term.  Open to all students at Abbey College, we are looking for actors, singers and dancers to take part in the show as well as students who want to get involved in the production of the show such as costumes, props and front of house.  We look forward to seeing who auditions and who the new team will be.  Break A Leg everyone!  Watch this space!

Year 7s have arrived at Abbey College and have shown to be a very keen and lively group.  We look forward to having them with us here at Abbey College.

These are the best results on the new specifications for A Levels and BTECs for the Ramsey-based college, which was awarded a Good rating from Ofsted in all areas, including the Sixth Form, just last year.

The overall pass rate was an impressive 99%.

There were particularly strong achievements in a range of subjects, including 50% A* grades in English Literature, 50% A*-A grades in Maths with 71% achieving A*-B grades, and 80% A*-B grades in Philosophy & Ethics.

Author Marcus Alexander paid a visit to Abbey College this week to inspire the year 7s.  His workshops and talks were very engaging and the students loved him!  Marcus, author of Keeper Of The Realms, did a lively presentation which included somersaults across the desk!  He certainly captured the imagination of the year 7s.

Oh no he isn't! Oh yes he is!

This year's school production is the pantomime Dick Turpin!  Suitable for all ages - the story has a twist and so is not going to be gorey or sinister.  With lots of singing, dancing, laughter and pie fights, this promises to be a good couple of hours of entertainment!  With students from all ages taking part we are very proud to open the doors to the public in early February.  Tickets are bought on the door!
