8M and 8F try Taekwondo

In todays’ PE lesson 8M and 8F have participated in a Taekwondo session led by Russell from Chi Taekwondo. They showed excellent discipline, practicing their punching and kicking technique with their partner. They all thoroughly enjoyed the session and can’t wait for Russell to come back next week!

GCSE art

The year 10 GCSE art spent the afternoon working on their observational drawing skills whilst trialling a variety of materials . We struggled with the scent at times but powered through to produce some lovely pieces . ‘Henry’ the haddock seemed to be everyone’s favourite model!

Toilet twinning (Article 24)

With World Toilet Day upon us, we’re reminded that clean sanitation is still seen as a privilege in many places. We have been collecting money to fund a toilet or toilet block in a developing country and are well on our way to reaching our £240 goal. If you would like to know more about toilet twinning, here is a link to the charity website

The Oaks Letter to Parents re Covid Testing

Dear Parents and Carers,


I hope you all have had an enjoyable summer.

This is an update on the COVID guidance for The Oaks School.

We are going to continue to encourage staff and pupils to wear masks in the corridors and when moving around public areas. Can all parents and carers of all Year 7 and new starters please complete a COVID consent form. We will also provide Consent forms from Thursday.

All pupils will have 2 lateral flow tests when they return to school (3 to 5 days apart)

After this we will send you a supply of home testing kits. If you would like us to continue to support your child to undertake lateral flow tests in school during the Autumn term then please let us know.

Please continue to send your child to school in PE kit when PE lessons are timetabled.
