Summer Concert 2021

Although we have been unable to hold our usual Summer Concert we wanted to showcase the creative talent we have here at Oldershaw by producing an online concert experience for you to enjoy at home. 

We really are proud of each and every pupil that has made this possible and it was a delight to spend the time creating this piece with them. They should be so proud of themselves! 

We hope you enjoy and look forward to welcoming you into the School for Summer Concert 2022. 

A Level & GCSE Results Days 2021

Please see the letters below for details of A Level and GCSE results days this year:

Trustee Recruitment

Following the restructure of the Governing Board of the Academy, a number of long-standing Governors have moved into the oversight role as members of the Academy, and this has created a number of vacancies within the new Trust Board.

The Trustees have the day to day responsibility for the governance of the Academy; there are two main sub-Committees, Finance, Audit and Risk (FAR) and Curriculum Standards (CSC) and Trustees typically serve on one or other of them and additionally they are attached to an academic department as a Link Trustee.

We are now seeking to strengthen the existing team and are looking for interested and committed individuals who would like to play a part in the Academy’s development as we move into our second century of providing high quality education to the young people of Wallasey.

We are seeking Trustees from diverse and varied backgrounds and specialisms, and welcome enquiries from anyone who feels that they have a contribution to make to Oldershaw. In particular people with a legal, financial, audit, human resources or a secondary education leadership background are especially encouraged to enrich our current skill mix.

In the first instance, and to have an informal conversation, you should make contact with Dr Ian Cubbin, Chair of Trustees, who can be contacted through the Academy on to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Further information including a job description and person specification can be found on the Academy website under vacancies


Summer Building Works

We will be utilising the Spring Half term and Summer Holidays to carry out £860,000 of major refurbishment and modernisation building works.

Works will include:

  • Building the Centenary Room, a new street food dining space for students
  • Creating a parent meeting room facility
  • Renovation of spaces to create 3 additional classrooms
  • Upgrade of whole school electrical systems
  • Installing a new fire and emergency lighting system
  • Completing a major ICT infrastructure upgrade to all systems and refurbishing 3 ICT suites

All of this work will mean there is limited restricted access on to the school site while these works are taking place.

We are in the process of finalising our plans for the staggered return to school of all pupils from Monday 8th March 2021.
