Welcome to our school
Welcome to the website of Oak Field School and Sports College in Nottingham
The last few months have seen some very positive achievements for the school. Oak Field has once again retained the International School Award, in recognition of its work in promoting the International dimension in its work. Students have been to Belgium recently to visit the battlefields and cemeteries – part of a national programme this was a very powerful type of education.
It was a second time round win for the school in the Nottingham in Bloom competition, winning the Best School Grounds Award. The school also won the Best Wild Life Garden in the East Midlands in Bloom awards. These accolades come in addition to other awards are testament to the dedication of pupils and staff alike.
Participation in the Robin Hood Marathon Fun Run was not only great fun but really important in ensuring pupils have a high profile in the community. Being part of the community is very much what Oak Field is about and the strength of our work experience programme helps develop those strong links. The recent day when employers came to give interview experience was wonderful in empowering the students and raising their confidence.
The students have continued to support good causes such as Emmanuel House in Sneinton, MacMillan Nurses and Children in Need. They learn that they too can contribute to the well being of others.
With winter festivities not far away, the school will soon be abuzz with rehearsals, singing and dancing and as the 45th year since the Act, which gave education to all children, comes to a close, I think we can truly say that the aspirations of those pioneers continue to be met.
