The Fundraisers enrich the curriculum: by paying for a local artist to lead an art master class for more able pupils. Pupils artwork is displayed in one of our garden areas.

Other ways to help us raise funds for the Academy include: Save For Schools Scheme: why not open a “Save For School” account with the Coventry Building Society Savers who have set up ‘linked accounts.’ When you save money, the Coventry donates money to the Oakfield Fundraisers.  If you would like to help raise money for the school using this method, please contact the Coventry Building Society and set up a linked account in the “Save For Schools Scheme.”

Meetings, event dates and information are regularly posted on our calendar page &  in our newsletter. Thank you for any support you may be able to give.
