Harvest Festival Service 

2 October 2018

All the children of Abbot Alphege Academy enjoyed celebrating Harvest Festival with Reverend Philip on Tuesday, 2 October in the wonderful setting of St Mary’s Church, Charlcombe.   This was the first visit for the Reception children who were very excited.  The children from Natterers class shared some super poems and prayers.  All the children sang some harvest songs.  Revd Philip’s sermon shared the wonders of seed dispersal using lots of interesting props!




Official Opening of Abbot Alphege Academy

25th September 2018

We were delighted to welcome Bishop Peter, the Lord Mayor and the Deputy Lord Mayor to Abbot Alphege Academy to celebrate the opening of our school. We were equally thrilled that so many of our parents were able to join us along with other guests who have been involved in so many different ways.  It felt like a fitting way to mark the occasion, the sun shone and the children sang beautifully.


















After School Club – Cookery at Abbot Alphege Academy

Pupils have been very busy cooking and learning about a number of basic food skills which enable us to cook dishes.

They mixed together ingredients to make a spiced biscuit dough, rolled and cut shapes, baked and then decorated them with a Christmas theme.

An excellent effort for being so creative. Well Done George, Lily, Archie, Alana, Eva, Seb, Eliza, Mollie and Barnaby.


Life at Abbot Alphege Academy

The children have settled in well at Abbot Alphege Academy and are enjoying exploring the outdoor space.  They have been taken blackberry picking, have used the building to inspire them with their art and have explored local wildlife including bats and worms!  They have also been learning about poetry and have written some poems about bats.  During assembly they helped make a friendship cake and learnt about how to be a good friend.
