Virtual Open Events
The Abbey is a School full of joy where independence, freedom of thought, and awareness of the world around us flourishes. We believe in innovation, an international outlook, encouraging all our students to use their voice - and as a School, we listen. So welcome to our Virtual Open Events - providing you an opportunity to get a sense of who we are, and meet students and staff in the Junior, Senior School or in Sixth Form along the way.
Book onto one of our live webinars too, and ask questions to our Head of School, staff and students.
(Booking forms can be found at the end of the Virtual Tours)
Last week, The Abbey PE Department welcomed sports physiotherapists from the Tyhtan 3-T Programme to the Senior School. This 3-step programme, Teach, Test, Train, is designed to improve children’s performance and help protect them against preventable sporting injuries.
The day was the third part of the ‘test’ element, with The Abbey Sports Scholars and elite level student athletes having already undertaken test days in June and September. Each student was tested individually, with performance monitored against their personalised set of goals, received from their previous test sessions. Using the feedback, the students will continue to train safely and effectively to help them to reach their potential and avoid injury.
Currently being done as a trial, the PE department will assess the impact of the 3-T Programme with the hope of being able to offer it to the whole school community in future.
Being able to trial, and potentially roll out, this innovative programme is possible thanks to funds being awarded from The Abbey Annual Fund. The Annual Fund was introduced to celebrate The Abbey’s 130th Anniversary, and allows new, school-wide projects to enhance academic, extra-curricular and pastoral activities and opportunities for students at The Abbey.
