Former Football Academy player and now professional footballer for Norwich City Sean Raggett returned to the Abbey School on Wednesday to talk to students and take the Academies final training session of the season.
Sean spoke to a selected number of year 7-10 students about his progression from the academy and how hard he has had to work to now be living the dream.
Sean said “I can’t believe it was nearly 5 years ago I left the Academy and school it doesn’t seem like yesterday. As soon as I came back into the school some great memories come back to me. The Academy helped me on my journey to now being a professional footballer”
Sean took the Academy through a training session that he would regularly do with Norwich City which they really enjoyed.

Over the Easter holidays Mrs Woodend, Ms Haran and Mr Shepherd took a group of ten students to visit our partner school Taaone in Tahiti, French Polynesia. The trip was for ten days, with two days of travel to this remote island in the middle of the Pacific.
Students were selected after successfully submitting an essay on the topic of ‘Why is it important to be internationally minded in 2018?’.
The trip was largely funded with grants and awards from the British Council and European Commission, including €37,555 from the Erasmus+ programme. This meant we were able to heavily subside the cost of roughly £2600 per student to just £150, with other funding also available if students were unable to meet the costs.
The trip formed part of one of our Erasmus+ project titled ‘Languages for Future Employment’. Mr Shepherd and the MFL department have taught lessons linked to this project, and students have been working hard on the project since it began in September 2016.
