Art workshop



On Monday 10th October 2022, our Year 10 GCSE Art students took part in an Art masterclass with Hazel and John from Same Sky (Burning of the Clocks) https://samesky.co.uk/.

The students worked confidently, producing a decorative pennant/banner with an Arts and Crafts theme inspired by William Morris. Our outcomes will be displayed at the ‘Christmas Courtyard’ installation at Standen House in December.


Student comments:

“It was a fun and innovative way of making art.”
“I enjoyed making my own version of Morris’ work.”

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 Collection time
A-G11:00
H-O11.30
P-Z12.00

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.

Regards

Mr Matthews

Sports Day 2021 Update


Due to circumstances beyond our control, Sports Day will now be held at Oriel High School on the field.

Students that are competing will be required to attend mentor at 8.20, where they will be shown a PowerPoint of how the day will unfold.

Unfortunately, due to the adaptations we have made, we will no longer be able to host parents, we hope that you understand our decision.

All students regardless of whether they are competing in sports day or not will be required to wear their PE kit.

Students competing will need to bring the following:

  • Full and correct PE kit
  • A packed lunch and plenty of fluids for the day
  • A sunhat and sun cream

We will be putting up gazebo’s to help provide shade for the students that will be outside all day. The school timings will be as normal and school and school sports day will finish at 2.40.
