GCSE Results

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

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.

Mr Stack

Sponsored Walk 2022 – Pitt Hopkins UK

Every Year we hold our whole school sponsored walk. Students as always were excited to set off and fundraise for our chosen charity @pitthopkinsUK Every year we walk along the Worth way to Crawley Down, where most stop for a spot of lunch, and then the return journey back to school. 10 miles (16km) in total.

Members of the public are incredibly complimentary about the attitude and behaviour of our students, This year our chosen charity is a small charity that supports families with children who have Pitt-Hopkins syndrome 9PTHS) which is a rare genetic neurological disorder. It was thus wonderful to present this cheque for an amazing £14,379.39 (so far), raised by our 2022 Sponsored Walk, to our chosen charity @PittHopkinsUK It was fab that ex Oriel student Megan & her son were able to be part of the day alongside Crawley residents Mark & Sarah who are ambassadors for the charity.. Thank you to everyone for your support #ProudToBePurple
