The curriculum: Oldfield has a broad and balanced curriculum delivered through six learning areas. In Years 7 to 9 the curriculum broadly follows the National Curriculum. We offer over 25 subjects at A Level and students usually study 10 or 11 subjects at GCSE.
Extra-curricular activities: We believe a vibrant and wide ranging extra-curricular and enrichment programme is an essential part of personal development. We aim to encourage participation from all of our students. Extra-curricular activities include debating society, language clubs, drama, and music clubs including glee club, choir and ukele. Sports clubs include; netball, football, boys and girls rugby, athletics, dance, cross country, badminton, basketball, tennis, and cricket. Residential and day trips are also seen as an important part of our students’ educational lives, with trips to Barcelona, Ardeche and Mimosa, Moscow, Belgium, Dorset, and a week-long Activities Week with all students participating in a wide variety of activities here and abroad.
Pastoral care: Seeing students as individual learners and promoting a fully-rounded education is at the heart of what we aim to achieve. We work in partnership with students and parents to raise students’ expectations and standards of achievement in a caring, secure and supportive environment. Each student is supported by a tutor who will monitor their group’s attendance, celebrate their achievements and raise any concerns. There is a Year 7 evening in September for parents to meet the tutors and members of staff. Tutors remain with their tutor groups throughout their life at Oldfield, enabling them to support them throughout their school life.
Name of Headteacher: Mr Steven Mackay
Outstanding characteristics: We provide an exceptional education in an environment that challenges all students and fosters ambition. Our students have respect for themselves, each other and their school and are well-prepared to face the world as compassionate, confident and resilient young people. The behaviour and conduct of our students is excellent. We recognise and reward good work and behaviour. The principles underlying this policy are based on respect – for self, for others and for the environment.
