OAKS Inset Day - Friday 23rd November

School will be closed to ALL students on Friday 23rd November.

Year 10 Enterprise Day

Thursday 2nd July was Year 10 Enterprise Day. Students in year 10 arrived at school dressed in ‘smart’ clothes and certainly impressed us with how great they looked. Each form group spent half of the day with their form tutors preparing for their work experience placements which begin next week, and half of the day working with Envision, an enterprise company who specialise in working with young people to encourage them to make a positive difference in their school and community .

Each student had a 10 minute mock-interview in the sixth form common room to prepare them for the future. The interviewers were business people from the local community and professionals connected to our school, including several school Governors. The interviewers were really impressed with our students and the students had their first experience of the rollercoaster of emotions applying for a new job.

The whole day went really well and students now leave us for a fortnight of new challenges and opportunities before returning on Monday 20th July to report back on their experiences. Thank you to Mrs Hussey, Envision, our interviewers and the Year 10 form tutors for all of their hard work.
