Collecting 2015 GCSE Results

Results will be available for collection from the hall on Thursday 20th August 2015 from 10am until 11am.  Students need to enter via the side doors of the main hall (off the drive) and not via reception.  If students wish any other person (including family members) to collect results on their behalf, students must give their written authorisation to Mrs Aldridge (aaldridge@oathall.org) before results day.  Oathall Community College teaching staff will be available on results day should you need post-results advice.

Candidates who do not collect their results on 20th August will receive notification through the normal post.  Letters will be posted on 20th August and not before.

The 13th National Students’ Art Exhibition

Congratulations to year 11 Art GCSE students Ellie Angus and Jess Brown whose portrait paintings were both selected to be exhibited at The Mall Galleries earlier this month.

JB-Portrait-web EA-with-portrait-webThis is the 13th year of the National Students’ Art Exhibition held under the patronage of the Royal Society of British Artists. It features the best young artists in the country, a truly inspirational exhibition celebrating gifted and talented students in Schools, Colleges and Academies.

James Horton MA RBA (President): ” It is vital and perhaps more so than ever before, that as a society we should strive to maintain a serious approach to developing new talent and ensuring that skills in all media are properly taught and the results recognised and applauded in order to preserve our cultural heritage.”

Last day of term arrangements

The last day of term is Wednesday 22 July.  As is our usual practice, students will be dismissed early following a whole school assembly. School will finish at approximately 13:00 hrs.  School bus times will be altered to reflect this change.

Hola! Bonjour! Guten Tag!

Students at Oathall have been busy celebrating the European Week of Languages. Everyone had the opportunity to develop their cultural knowledge of European countries. Year 7 students participated in a sensational Eurovision contest. They sang songs in French, Spanish and German. The winning group will be announced shortly (watch this space!). Students also had the opportunity to sample European cuisine with Year 9 classes cooking European pastries with Mr Maier. And students in Year 8 and Year 9 tried out Spanish tapas with Señor Henri and German food with Frau Stockley.

Other cultural activities included working on a project about a European artist, learning how to play ‘la pétanque’ and studying the film‘ Les choristes’. Oathall staff demonstrated their hidden talents as they were challenged to say ‘hello’ in any language by Year 8 students.
We would like to thank everyone for their enthusiastic participation.

A bientôt ! Bis bald! ¡Hasta luego!
