New Term Information

Posted on: July 17, 2014

Dear Parents, Carers,

I would like to thank you for providing so much support to the academy this year. We have had a great year once again. OSSMA continues to have a wonderful reputation both locally and nationally. For the first time in the school and academy’s history, we are over subscribed for September 2014. This is the result of the confidence that parents have in what we are doing here.

In addition, we open our new Sixth Form College and are also going to be a centre for training new teachers. All of this is very exciting but couldn’t be achieved without your support.

I would like to draw your attention to the numbers that we have in place for each Head of Year.

To contact Miss. Farmer – Head of Year 7 please call 01782 882207.

To contact Mr. Boyle – Head of Year 8 please call 01782 882208.

To contact Mrs. Lawson – Head of Year 9 please call 01782 882209.

To contact Mr. McLaughlin – Head of Year 10 please call 01782 882210.

To Contact Mr. Line – Head of Year 11 please contact 01782 882211.

As you know, today is the last day of term. The academy will re-open for pupils on Tuesday 2nd September 2014. Please note that the new Year 7 pupils should arrive for registration at 8.45am. Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 should arrive at 11.00am.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to seeing you in September.

Yours sincerely

M Stanyer
