Cellist Aglaia Carvalho-Dubost received a standing ovation for her beautiful performance of the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto with the Burgess Hill Symphony Orchestra on the evening of Saturday 14th May 2022, under the baton of Mike Woods. This was quite unique for a person her age to perform as a soloist at this level, and she executed the technically challenging solo cello part with such expressive detail. Teachers and fellow students were there to support her and a wonderful evening was had by all.

Our year 8 students got a taste of the world of work last week as they took part in Take Your Child to Work Day.
This initiative gave students the opportunity to witness first-hand what happens in the work place.
Pictured is one of our students was lucky enough to go to Christie’s (London) with her aunt who is a Client Governance and Data Protection Director.
Successful people maintain good habits and are consistently goal oriented. This assembly looks at a range of successful people and how they got to be where they have.
We were thrilled to welcome back local radio celebrity Jack Hayes from More Radio (aka ‘Jack The Lad’) to Oathall recently with his Dare to Dream team to deliver an inspirational programme from the Love Local Jobs Foundation that challenges students to change the way they think.
As a professional entertainer, Jack uses his skills to engage with students in a unique and memorable way. His presentation served to promote and reinforce core themes central to wellbeing, employability and positive futures; ultimately encouraging our students to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.
Oathall students have enjoyed more success at the Girls STEM Inspiration Trip. The event allowed them to enjoy taking part in activities designed to introduce students to some new maths, including imaginary numbers.
Our students had a fantastic time and participated in activities exploring STEM careers, and were shown how maths is used in space exploration.
The Dragon Race was a tremendous success, and our girls showed great enthusiasm in this team event. Participants were split into four teams and raced against each other to solve challenging maths questions. With every question they answered correctly, the team got to put a card down to build their dragon – the longest dragon won.
Our students won 1st equal place (two teams), and everyone involved had a fantastic time.
Thank you to Ms Ramsey for organising the event, and congratulations to our students.
