Congratulations to Student of the Week, Arshia in Year 12.  Arshia joined Abbey College on the 18 Month in January 2024. He started off quite slow and was disappointed with his first topic test results. He has been very engaged in lessons, participates in class discussions, and has worked his way up to score a 78%(A) in his mid-year Maths exam. His consistent effort in class, positive attitude, and willingness to help others has not gone unnoticed.  His determination and dedication to do better is an example for the rest of students in the 18 Month group. Well done Arshia. #studentoftheweek #workinghard #improvedresults
