Throughout the summer term over 75 students have been involved in preparing and producing our production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. From the onset ABS Performance had visions of grandeur for the production which, with lots of hard work, fund raising and determination have transformed the heart of our school into a 300 seat proscenium style theater complete with some professional scenery, over 40 lights, a haze machine and around 30 microphones. To ensure every aspect of the production was as professional as possible we created an online ticket website which helped us to manage the sales of over 700 tickets. We also performed a matinee show for our whole school, meaning that in total the show was performed to around 1,500 people! All of the students involved in the production yet again surpassed all of our expectations, proving the abundance of talent we have at our school as well as the overwhelming friendly, compassionate and professional nature of our students. A massive well done and congratulations to everyone who was involved in the production!
"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School. Choosing the right secondary school for one's children is such a difficult task, but we could feel the special ethos of ABS on our first visit. You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
