School Announcement

The Executive Principal Mr Jon Bush after 23 years of service to the school and its community is leaving The Oldershaw School to seek out new opportunities.  Mr Bush first joined the school in 1999 and has successfully served the school in a number of roles.

As Assistant Head he oversaw the computers for schools with more than seven hundred devices in the community, as Director of the Business & Enterprise specialism which resulted in the building of the new Sixth Form, as Curriculum Deputy Head and then, finally becoming Co-Principal in 2016 before becoming the school’s sole Executive Principal in September 2020. During his tenure as co and sole Executive Principal, the school came through a challenging period before deservedly becoming and sustaining its Ofsted Good in all areas.  This final year seeing the new all-weather pitch being opened along with the new Centenary Building to meet the needs of this popular oversubscribed school at the heart of the community.

Mr Bush shares with students, parents, and staff; “I would like to thank all the staff for all the hard work and support over these challenging times.  We all should continue to share our core values; the Kindness that is shown to all in our inclusive school, the resilience demonstrated through the meeting the challenges and celebrate with Pride being part of the Oldershaw community and remembering all our successes.  Most importantly all our students past and present which we know will always remember Oldershaw and what it has meant to them.”

Mr Steve Fisher will continue as Executive Headteacher and will lead the school while the Board of Trustees initiate a recruitment process to appoint a new Principal.

We all thank Mr Bush for his many years of service to The Oldershaw School and wish him good fortune in his new ventures.

Peninsula PE Partnership Wirral – Student Survey

We are currently working as part of a 21 school research project who form part of the Penisula PE Partnership Wirral. This means we can access valuable funding within our PE department. As part of this project we have been asked to help Sheffield Hallam University conduct some research in this area. 

The University are conducting research to evaluate the effectiveness of a new initiative to improve students experience of PE and physical activity, that is currently being offered to all secondary schools in England. The research project requires students to complete a short on-line survey that asks their opinion of the Physical education, physical activity and sport opportunities available to them at school.

Please see full details in our letters section.
