It has been a really fantastic start to our new academic year here at Oxford Spires Academy. We are really proud of our students as they have really excelled themselves.
Over 480 of our students have taken part and supported our house sports competitions last week. At least 220 girls played in their house Football teams, 150 boys played rugby and 110 boys & girls played house DodgeBall.
Our first Piano recital using our new baby grand piano was an overwhelming success, so much so that we are now organising a second musical evening before Christmas. Students have also taken part in the Shakespeare in schools work shop and I very much look forward to the final performances of this next term.
Students in Year 7 have completed their first homework project in Humanities. Our Year 7 have produced some truly amazing models of Palaeolithic camps, they are rightly proud of them and they will be on display in our meet the tutor and settling in meeting for Year 7 this week.
Our Students in Year 8 have produced Volcano models and these again are marvellous, we have exploding volcanos models, fact files and posters and edible cake volcanos, some truly amazing outcomes.
Our Oxford Spires News team have officially launched our student website ‘The Spires Scoop’.
This is now live and can be found using Google, please make sure to have a look, it really is amazing and full of information that you just can’t miss.
Over 400 students helped out on Open evening, it was a lovely atmosphere and I really enjoyed meeting both parents and our potential new students for September. If you were unable to visit our wonderful school and would like to come and see us, please do not hesitate to contact us at and academy and we will arrange a tour for you.
Poetry Successes on an international stage
We have an amazing 7 winners in the Foyle Poetry Competition. One of our young ladies has achieved a place within the top 15. There is a special recognition from the Poetry Society for OSA as we are once again the most successful school in the world in this international competition. (15,000 entries annually are judged anonymously)
We have so many things to celebrate within the academy and I would like to thank our committed and dedicated teachers for making all of these opportunities possible.
Have a wonderful half term break.
