The ABD suspended all ABD examiner travel on 17 March until 30 April 2020.
The safety of our teachers, candidates, parents, examiners and ABD staff is paramount. We will postpone and reorganise all exams where possible.

One of our Theatre Members Lorraine George has written a book to raise funds for her charity The Rob George Foundation which she set-up with her husband in memory of their youngest son Rob whose life was cruelly cut short by acute myeloid leukaemia.

The foundation has two aims.

  • To financially or practically support young people with life threatening illnesses
  • To financially support young people in the worlds of Sport or Performing Arts who demonstrate enormous commitment, and/or ability, but can show that they are being stopped from fulfilling their full potential due to their financial situation.

The book is called ‘End to End – with love. X” It is available in paperback from Amazon for £15.99  and all proceeds will go to the Rob George Foundation and support young people when they need it most.

Four years in the life of an ordinary mother. A book from the heart, attempting to record what it is like to find your life out of your control. Share the uncomfortable juxtaposition of deep sadness alongside enormous fun and pride. On the one hand "End to End – with love. x" is a journey through the eyes of a mother, as her youngest son faces a life threatening illness. Intertwined with this runs an account of her journey, literally from the end to end of Britain, on a bike! This was a trip they had planned to make together. This is a true-life account of the surprising strength, determination and power that can be found deep within us. Life will never be the same again for this mother and her family. Perhaps it will inspire you too? Proceeds from the sale of this book will help support the work of The Rob George
