“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.” Ofsted 2017
As well as doing all we can to ensure that your child achieves academically at OSSMA, we firmly believe that it is just as important to develop your child as a person and give them experiences which can help shape their attitude towards careers, travel, hard work, health and fitness and many other aspects of everyday life.
Our ‘OSSMA Pledge’ is designed to outline the enrichment opportunities your child can take advantage of throughout their time with us. From experiencing overseas travel, joining after school clubs, experiencing outdoor education opportunities, taking part in regular debate, visiting the opera or theatre, going to see top-level sporting events such as Wimbledon, Premier League Football matches, rugby and other international sporting events.
We will encourage your child to visit the world’s most prestigious universities and take part in careers events to help them to appreciate the wide and varied career opportunities available to them. We will make sure that they appreciate that manners, politeness, and consideration for others are just as important in their lives as their academic qualifications.
We look forward to taking your child on a journey of self-discovery and unlimited possibilities.
We have a wide range of extra-curricular activities that your child can take part in before school, during lunchtime and after school, such as:
- Chess club
- Cookery club
- Lego club
Our Personal Development brochure below gives a more detailed overview of what we offer and why we feel the personal development of students is so important to us.
