Parent Pay

We are sorry that Parentpay is still not available for Year 5 parents. We are doing all we can to rectify this and hope this will be very soon. Parents of our current Year 6, 7 & 8 pupils have the option to pay for items purchased from the academy canteen on Parentpay.   Please be aware that the tills are not updating the system currently so your balance may not be up to date.  Parents can pay for items such as trips by bringing cash or a cheque to the Academy Office.

Thank you for your patience with this matter.


Please can we remind pupils and parents that Scooters are not allowed to be brought into school.  Pupils in KS3 can cycle if they wear cycle helmets, there are facilities to lock bikes securely in our bike sheds.  KS2 pupils can cycle to and from school once they complete a Bikeability training course.  Please contact the office if you would like to add your child’s name to the waiting list.
Thank you.


Parent Pay issues -new Year 5 pupils

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any queries regarding this.

Julie Ford – Nurse

Trinity First School / Oakfield School / Frome Community College.


Oakfield definitely prepared me for Frome Community College and gave me an insight into a variety of subjects, helping me to decide what GCSEs to take. I went on to take Food Technology, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, History, PE, Statistics, English and Maths GCSEs. Oakfield is where my love for science began where I then went on to achieve As and B’s at GCSE science. I also loved Food Technology at Oakfield which led to me cooking more and more at home. I took GCSE Food Technology and achieved an A. I continue to cook and love to experiment with new flavours.


My most favourable memory of Oakfield was going to Charterhouse where we took part in caving and Osmington Bay where we went on boats and tried out abseiling. Friendships grew throughout the years and the teachers were always there to listen. Mr Gough, my year seven and eight tutor, always made us laugh – a great start to any day!


I went on to study my GCSEs and A-levels at Frome Community College and studied Health and Social Care Level 3 at Bath College. I am now at Swansea University studying Children’s Nursing.

Somerset Reading Challenge

It’s that time of year again when all Somerset libraries are getting ready for the annual Summer Reading Challenge. The Challenge is promoted by the Reading Agency with the aim of encouraging children aged 5 to 11 to keep reading during the summer holidays.
This year the challenge is called Mischief Makers and is centred on Dennis, Gnasher and characters from the Beano. There are clues to follow, the usually (often smelly) stickers to collect and online activities to join in with at home. Children who take part are encouraged to read up to 6 books, either on their own or with family. They can read fiction, non-fiction, graphic or audio books. They are rewarded with stickers and a certificate and those who read all 6 get a medal.

The Summer Reading Challenge is a great example of how libraries and schools can work together to encourage and develop a lifelong love of reading for the whole family. It’s not a competition, but a personal challenge that offers reading inspiration and incentives to entice children into libraries. Library staff encourage children to try new books, as well as reading more of their favourite authors. The Library also runs a series of activities based around the theme of the Challenge.

Last year 84 children from Oakfield took part with 51 children reading 6 books over the summer. It would be wonderful if we can encourage more children to take part this year.
