We are inviting all Abbey Alumnae back to School for an extra special Grand Reunion in October to celebrate our 130th Anniversary year. Experience the vibrancy of today’s Abbey life by playing in some sport or going 'back to the classroom' in one of our interactive lesson sessions; or simply take a tour of the School, catch up with friends, and enjoy lunch and afternoon tea. Family members are welcome and there will be a programme of children’s activities.
We would especially love to see leavers from 2007, 1997, 1987, 1977, 1967, 1957 and 1947 as they celebrate their own decade anniversaries.

As part of our 130th anniversary year, Mrs Dent hosted a special Afternoon Tea in June for 30 past and present Abbey Head Girls to celebrate their contribution to the Abbey's story. It was a wonderful afternoon full of laughter and reminiscences. Photos from the event can be viewed here.
This year's London Drinks - our largest yet - was attended by 160 Alumnae, staff and current sixth form students. Our alumnae were able to catch up with friends old and new over drinks and canapés, and a large number of them were also able to enjoy a tour afterwards of the Palace of Westminster. The event was supported by the Rt Hon Lord Paul Boateng. A wonderful gallery of photos from the evening are available to view here.
