Week B

Abbeyfield School runs on a fortnightly timetable. The week commencing 21st September runs to the Week B schedule.

Abbeyfield Art Exhibition 2020

This exhibition is to  celebrate the amazing artistic talents many of the students of Abbeyfield School have demonstrated during lockdown.

For the past 20 years we have organized an annual exhibition in the Summer Term to showcase the fantastic work produced from across each year group, including the work from exam groups in Y11 and 13. This is the first year that we haven’t been able to do this therefore we have selected work from those students that have been motivated, consistent and conscientious in producing high quality work over the past three months.

To view the exhibition please click the image below (it works better if you click on full screen).
