Welcome to Ockbrook School

Ockbrook School (“the Company”) has ceased trading and is now closed. The Company was placed into Administration on 28th July 2021 and Ryan Davies and Ian Robert of Moore Kingston Smith & Partners LLP were appointed Joint Administrators on the same date. The affairs, business and property of the Company are being managed by the Administrators who act as agents of the Company and without personal liability. Please contact ockbrook@mks.co.uk should you have any queries in respect of the Administration.

 

RESULTS DAY
10th & 12th August 2021 (A level & GCSE)

As Ockbrook School has now closed, we are no longer in a position to allow students and parents to come to the Birtill Hall on the results days. This is for a number of reasons which include staffing, health and safety, and insurance cover, among others. Instead, the results will be posted to the students by letter, and emailed to the student’s school email account. The email accounts will be reactivated by the end of this week. Unfortunately, we cannot send results to private email addresses.

Please can I ask if this page will remain on Facebook so that people can still view the memories of previous years? It would be so sad if it had to close.

So sad.😢

Can we add photos please of our time at Ockbrook

I can’t believe how my “Ockbrook Girls boarding school” (as it was in my day could ever close) What on earth happened to such a historic institution?☹️

You could tell, in the short time he was there, Mr Shipway was going to be a fantastic Head Teacher 💔

A very courageous speech and encouraging for the pupils who are still shocked by the sudden school closure.

What strikes me about this speech and the Trustees actions, irrespective of any underlying financial difficulties, is that having employed a clearly able & passionate new head, who had already started to turn things around, they stripped him the opportunity to complete the task they had employed him for, turning the school around. If only Mr Shipway had been employed earlier, or the Trustees had spent a moment reflecting on the positive changes that came with the employment of Mr Shipway, before pulling the plug on the school. They should have at least given him a full academic year before even considering what they have done. I have no doubt that he would’ve been the man for the job and wish him all the best. As an aside, I think it was a shame that years 11 & 13 missed this speech. Very inspiring! All the best to all the leavers, staff, students and families there of.

A lovely speech by what appears to be a good man. Sorry for not meeting him.

I was there in 1984 when I was 3 because my dad wanted me to have a bright future then again in 1996 when I was 15 with a scholarship. Although it was a school filled with people from highly privileged backgrounds (we didn’t) I believe the teachers they chose for reception were extremely special Pam Summers Pam went on to save me in a way she will never realise. She took me on when I had nobody in my teens. Now I’m 40, everything ive worked hard for is because of the belief pam had in me, my grandma had in me and my mum. I thank my dad for ensuring we went there for primary school which meant he and my mum had to work 16 hour days. Ockbrook will always be a special place for me even though I never fit in. X

A very sad day 🥲

It is with great sadness that the Trustees are informing you today of their decision to close Ockbrook School at the end of the Summer term. At Ockbrook School, we have aimed to develop individual potential and self worth through stimulating and positive relationships and through an understanding of Christian values, so that our pupils are prepared for the changes they will face in their future lives. We are tremendously proud of what we have achieved through the years. Their decision to shut the school was not taken lightly, and was driven by the school remaining significantly loss-making, exacerbated by the Covid Pandemic. We apologise to everyone affected by this. Parents are invited to contact Trustees directly in the event that they have any questions. ...

We are pleased to announce our new Nursery funding provision for 2021-22. From September we will be able to offer up to 30 hours funding to eligible children. Please contact our registrar by phone or via enquiries@ockbrooksch.co.uk
Please share and forward to anyone who you think might be interested in starting their learning journey at Ockbrook.

The children in Reception came into their classroom to find that someone had made a big mess in our cottage bakery! They quickly realised it was probably the Gingerbread man! They set to creating wanted /missing posters and stuck them around the building.
This has lead to some brilliant work around floating and sinking, bridge building, writing sorry letters and making traps.
