Oaks Park High Activity Camp 2021

The We are OAKS Activity Camp took place between the 23rd of August and the 27th of August 2021. The transition team put together a bespoke programme which included both academic and enrichment activities to help the students settle in before they started at Oaks Park High in September. The week long camp was a wonderful opportunity for students to make friends, learn about the school and try a range of different experiences. Centred around our OAKS mantra students were able to have a taste of high school life whilst enjoying our fantastic facilities and meeting key members of staff. As well as trialling school subjects, our new Year 7 students took part in a range of different sports, learnt outdoor survival skills and built water rockets. The highlight of the week was definitely our team building day in which students and teachers competed in teams and took part in funny and entertaining games during the inflatable ‘It’s a Knockout’ Challenge.

We were delighted that 200 students attended and were able to make the most of this opportunity. The behaviour of the students during the week was exemplary and we were very proud of how well our new Year 7 approached every activity with enthusiasm.
