Swimming Pool
We have planned with the school leadership team the 2017 Summer swimming season. Your comments have been very much welcomed and we believe we have arrived at an improved offer for this year. You can now apply for an after school swimming club and / or an opportunity for Family swimming during weekends and the summer holiday. PDF letter (with form) available to download from the letters section.


Thank you to the dedicated pool carers who support the school community by looking after the water and making sure everything is safe for pupil and community use. If you would like to support the school / PTFA with the operation of the swimming pool please do get in touch via the school office.

School pool status: Open - commissioned and now under the care of the Pool Caring team (Georgi Blyth, Paula Harper, Lesley Lane. Linette Blackmore, David Farrant, Ella Ralinovski)

The Pool is currently open for all swimming sessions. The pool carers are working on the pool.

PTFA projects: Incredible motivation, co-operation and resilience by parents resulted in two significant community events during this half of the term: The Abington 10k and Fun Run event raised funds for the school, the 10k and Fun Run bringing in more than £5,000 for the PTFA and school. Your feedback through discussions in the playground and via the online survey has been very informative and will be useful in shaping future events. Thank you for taking the time to feedback. The fund raising is enabling the school community to plan significant projects and enrichment activities that would otherwise be impossible to include for all pupils. Already expereinced through the 2016-2017 Academic Year were the following enrichment experiences funded through your support:
C1 & C2 - Goldilocks & the Three Bears (Northern Ballet, Peterborough)
C3 & C4 - Matilda (Cambridge Theatre, London)
C5 - La Fille Mal Gardee (Royal Opera House, Royal Ballet, London)
