This morning 16 Year 10 students were dropped off for a weekend working towards their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. Still smiling despite the sad news this week. Let’s see if they look this fresh faced on Sunday!

Big thank you to Mrs Faulkner for carrying on for the students at these tough times.

Ockbrook family continuing to stand together always.

Thank you to Mrs Faulkner and all those in school who ensured this still happened, absolutely above and beyond in light of everything they’re having to deal with. X

Four of my Y10 Geographers are in there. They faced end of year exams last Wednesday so soon after hearing that their school security had been ripped away. Their results, which they will find out next week, are fantastic. Courage facing adversity together.

Thank you so much Mrs Faulkner and everyone who carried on through this tough time and still made this happen. You are one in a million!

What a wonderful photo... very special! Proud of you all for being determined to continue. Heartfelt thanks to Mrs Faulkner x

Shout out to Claire McMain & Paul Kinsella for driving the pupils to enable them to do this! We all have other things we need to be doing right now but Ockbrook is our family and we don’t down tools easily!

Endjoy your work Dear friend, Hope all is doing good for you.... Big welcome to Morocco. All the best and regards Jamal

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.
