"We are very proud of the work of the Peer Mentors and it is great to see so many young students who want to undertake the training and take their role very seriously. They support new and existing students to settle into our community and feel part of the school very quickly."
Our first Textiles A Level Group put up a very temporary exhibition of their work in the Vocational Restaurant at the Abbey School. The varied themes and concepts took in troubling technology, reimagined sailor uniforms and tattoos, mermaid swimwear, plastic pollution, beauty myths, symbolic armour, organic corsetry, drowned girls, Cubist portraits and a woodland inspired costume! All five students worked very hard throughout their course and demonstrated high levels of skill, as well as their ability to think creatively and independently. We may be biased, but we believe their work could be shown and admired in any public Art or Textiles Exhibition! We await Results Day with bated breath.

The Abbey School Art Exhibition 2017 will be on show at the Fleur de Lis in Faversham Town Centre. The Fleur de Lis gallery is free to enter and open Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm and Sunday 10am - 1pm.
This year's exhibition includes a variety of work from year 7 through to 6th Form and will be on show until 27th June.
We are very proud of our students and their achievements.
They praised the strong leadership of the school and stated that we continue ‘to provide the best possible education for each pupil. ‘You are well supported by the staff and a dedicated and strong governing body in your drive to achieve this.’ They witnessed the ‘high levels of aspiration among the pupils and students in a strongly supportive environment. They also observed that ‘this creates an atmosphere where pupils and students develop as individuals and are well-prepared for life as responsible members of the community.’
We were pleased that, amongst many things, they acknowledged:
In the last inspection in 2013, inspectors noted several strengths, including: ‘strong leadership, quality of teaching, improving exam results, a vibrant sixth form, good behaviour, and excellent level of care and safety’. It is pleasing that they agreed that this is still the case at The Abbey School.
We hope that you, as parents and carers, will be as equally pleased with the report and are reassured that the school continues to provide a good education for our children and continues to improve.
