It's World Book Day and here at ABS we are celebrating everything book related: Staff costumes, student accessories, treasure hunts and secret quotations. There will be winners for those whole solve the clues and book vouchers for all!
As part of our World Book Day celebrations, our Y12 Spanish students visited the Crescent Theatre in Birmingham to see the performance of our A Level literary text La Casa de Bernarda Alba, written by Federico García Lorca and produced by @CervantesTheatr
Students had a fantastic time, enjoyed the production and gained a better understanding of the play and its cultural context.
Alongside World Book Day we also celebrated "Drop Everything and Read" for the last 10 minutes of the day all staff and students stopped what they were doing and read a book of their choice.
"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."
