Another Set of Results for Abbeyfield Students

Abbeyfield School students celebrate another record breaking year, with Academic results improving again on last year. 50% of students achieved at least one A*-B,  A*-A went up by 5% with A*-B grades following the same pattern; there are some excellent individual results and we are thrilled that all of our students are going to the universities of their choice.

Principal David Powell said “I am delighted with another great set of results that reflect all of the hard work and effort that has been put in again this year by both staff and students; our overall results have improved yet again with students, on average, scoring a third of a grade more across the board. The number of Abbeyfield students that go off to prestigious Russell Group universities continues to rise and we are privileged to be able to work with such a wonderful group of young people”.

A special mention needs to go to Sanjeet Kaur with A* A* A* in Maths, Further Maths and Physics; impressively, Sanjeet got full marks in her maths A Level and will be taking up a place at Imperial College, London. Other mentions need to go to Olivia Taylor, A* A* B; Callum Slinn, A* A* A; Poppy Eccles, A*A B; Richmund Rosales, A* A C; Gabriella Teriaca A* A* B and Joshua Bastow, A B C.

We are privileged to have been able to be a part in the futures of these amazing young people.

Abbeyfield students take part in community litter pick

On Wednesday 13 June,  environment- conscious students from the Abbeyfield Community Project Team joined forces with Tesco, Northampton and East Hunsbury Parish Council for a community litter pick.

A total of 9 bags of rubbish were collected; a great morning’s work and a real team effort.

More partnership projects are planned, hoping to make our environment a nicer place.

Internet Safety- Parent Guide

The Internet and new communications technology, like all environments and media, can be used and abused. Fortunately, the positive aspects far outweigh the negative. However, at Abbeyfield, we know how important it is to protect and educate young people on using the Internet and want to provide all our users with a safe experience.

Please click here to take you to the thinkuknow website, which is considered the very best internet safety site currently available. ‘thinkuknow’ is the education branch of a specialist police team called CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) and the site provides support and guidance about online safety to children and young people (ages 5-18), parents and childcare professionals. The site also features the CEOP Report button, which allows a child (or concerned adult) to report inappropriate or dangerous online behaviour directly to the CEOP officers for investigation. It is a hugely important tool in raising the profile of e Safety, but also in reducing incidents of grooming and cyber bullying’.

In January 2015, The NSPCC launched a public education campaign called Share Aware to help parents keep their children safe online.To view or download the Parent Guide produced as part of this campaign, please click here.
