Year 8 pupils attend ‘Aspiration Day’ at Bath University!

The day was designed to help pupils make qualification choices and plan career paths according to their interests.

The following is from Paula Royle (Year 8 Curriculum Team Leader)

“I felt you would all like to know how amazing our Year 8s were on this visit. The pupils, taken on this visit, were selected by their teachers for their potential for further study. We were the only middle school from Frome to attend and were there with two other schools attending the event. Our pupils were congratulated time and time again throughout the day for their good manners, appearance, application and pleasantness!! Kate Stewart (Year 7 Curriculum Team Leader) and I were so proud.”

Gemma Palmer, Widening Participation Office, University of Bath wrote,

“I would like to congratulate your Year 8 students for their impeccable behaviour and hard working attitude throughout the day. They were by far the most motivated and well-mannered students at the event and are a real credit to Oakfield. Please pass on
our congratulations. I am certain they will go far and achieve great things in life!”
