Oak Wood School


Covid Home Testing

Students have continued to be issued with packs of tests this term and we encourage them to continue testing twice a week. If students require extra packs of tests they need to speak to Mrs Spencer in the 6th form office.

Attendance Reminders

A reminder that all Year 12 students should be in school every day for an 08:30 start, even if they don't have lessons first thing in the morning. All students are permitted to leave at lunchtime if they don't have timetabled lessons period 5, but this is a privilege that can be removed. The end of the normal school day is at 14:50. Any Year 13 students that may start later in the morning have had letters sent home. If a Year 13 student doesn't have lessons period 1 and 2 they may come in to school at 10:50 (no later than that, even if they don't have a lesson period 3). 

If your son or daughter is unable to attend school, for any reason, it is vitally important that you inform Mrs Spencer as to why they aren't able to attend. Please call the main school number: 01895 237350 and choose option 4 (sixth form). If Mrs Spencer isn't at her desk you will be able to leave a message, please leave a contact number, just in case she needs any clarification (e.g. if a Covid related absence). Alternatively please email: sixthform@oakwoodschool.uk
