KS3 Sportshall Athletics sucess

Our KS3 sportshall athletics teams did Oakfield proud today (14.11.17).  Both the girls and boys teams came first in their categories of the Mendip area finals.
They have qualified to go to the County Finals, we are very impressed and proud of their hard work today.  I apologise if any of the pupils were exhausted on the Wednesday but we didn’t arrive back at Oakfield until 6.45 so it was a long day for us all but worth it.

Book Fair sucess

Book Fair 8th - 15th November

I would like to thank students, parents and staff who supported the book fair this term. We have raised a fantastic total of £954.48, this means we have over £500 worth of new books to restock our library. All students will benefit from the new books available in the library over the next few weeks.

I would particularly like to thank the prefects, Aimee, Aaron, Lottie, Tilly, Ella, Danny, Nuno and Sophie  for their help during this very busy time, they were all polite, helpful and brilliant role models for our younger students.

Thank you

Chris Perrett-Librarian
