On behalf of the Oriel High School community, I say well done indeed to our Year 11 students on their superb results!
These were the first external, public examinations for Year 11 students across the country in three years and there was some uncertainty about whether these examinations would go ahead and if so, in what format. Our Year 11 students demonstrated a sense of true grit and maturity leading up to the examinations and their behaviour and attitude was impeccable throughout the examination season. They richly deserve the results that they have achieved, and they are a credit to their families, our school and most importantly to themselves. I should like to take this opportunity to thank our families for their support and to again thank our staff for their hard work and dedicated commitment to our students. I am delighted for our students and congratulate them on behalf of our school community for these excellent results.
I look forward to seeing many of them in our Sixth Form in the new academic year, but regardless of their destination for September, I wish them all every happiness and success for the future.
Mr Stack, Headteacher
GCSE Results Day – Thursday 25th August
We will distribute GCSE results to students from 11am on Thursday 25th August 2022. We are staggering the times at which students should attend. These times are dictated by surname. The timings are as follows:
Surname beginning with
When arriving to collect results students should enter the school building via the main reception to collect results which will be distributed in the Hall.
Should you have pre-arranged with the exams office for someone other than yourself to collect results on their behalf please ensure that the person collecting brings appropriate identification such as a bank card or driving licence.
On the day students will be able to confirm their place at Oriel Sixth Form. To confirm their place students must speak to a member of the Sixth Form team (Mrs Denman, Mrs Bates & Mr Withell) when they collect their results. Should a student wish to make a late application after receiving their results they should speak to a member of the Sixth Form team who will be able to advise them of their next steps.
Members of staff will be on hand to ensure that individual students are able to have any necessary conversations to assist them in their progression to the next steps of their education, employment or training.
A Level results – Congratulations everyone
On behalf of the Oriel High School community, I offer hearty congratulations to our Year 13 students on their amazing achievements. Their superb results are so impressive as has been their attitude and approach to their preparations for these examinations. As is well known, these were the first external, public examinations in three years and there was some uncertainty about whether these examinations would go ahead and if so, in what format. Our students demonstrated a resilience and a determination to achieve well which has been reflected in these fantastic results. Our students are a credit to their families, our school and most importantly to themselves. I should like to take this opportunity to thank our families for their support and our staff for their hard work and dedicated commitment to our students. Once again, I congratulate our students on behalf of our school community and wish them every happiness and success for the future.
Eco Schools Green Flag
Oriel High School now holds the Eco Schools Green Flag!
The Eco Group at Oriel have been working really hard to complete their application to become an Eco School. Being an Eco School is the perfect way to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the ecological achievements of young people. It demonstrates that their hard work is appreciated and it provides them with the confidence and motivation to continue actively engaging with environmental issues now and throughout their lifetimes. The group have begun to tackle this by looking at environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity, litter and plastic pollution. They completed a whole school audit on what we are doing well to reduce our foot print on this earth and raised the profile of the work they have been doing by producing posters to display around school, brighten up our school garden with vibrant art work and continuing to encourage others to save water by using reusable water bottles and to recycle their litter and crisp packets around school. We received some great feedback from the Eco Schools team which demonstrates the hard work the group have shown.
“This shows you have a confident Eco-Committee dedicated to maximising their impacts. We like how active your Eco-Committee was in communicating their Eco-Schools activity school-wide, including assemblies, communicating with the SLT, using your Eco-Board, posting on social media and the use of the mentor board. Your Eco-board especially is incredibly visual and engaging and promotes your work in a very attractive way. This is really strong informing and involving and shows how valued and embedded the Eco-Schools programme is in your school.” Eco Schools Team
The groups work does not stop there. Over the coming weeks the group aim to deliver assemblies to share their ideas outlined in their action plan as well as creating flower beds around the school grounds to add a pop of colour and encourage further wildlife into area. We will also be leading a community litter pick and heading out into the Oriel Garden to plant some seasonal veg!
