Wonderful Memories - Leavers Assembly

We’d like to thank everybody for a leavers assembly that will form a wonderful memory for those moving on and also for those who took part. The event was opened by the Head Teacher, who then introduced a series of slides looking back at the students through their time at the school. The guest speaker, Dr Fenella Quinn, also gave a touching speech about the leavers and their achievements.

A number of awards were handed out. There were awards for Most Consistent Student, Most Improved Social Skills, Clear Vision & Purpose in Mind and an Achievement Award in Maths and English together with many others. All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the assembly in which all their hard work and effort was rewarded.

A special touch was speeches given by two young people who are leaving the school to go to college placements. They wrote speeches and bravely read them out; their thoughts and feedback were heart felt and moving,

"I have learned so much from everybody and have had valuable life lessons and I have enjoyed every minute here in the company of such wonderful people".

"My time here has been indescribable.

"It's all been an amazing time, it really has, but I only have one thing to say to each and every one of you in this room is that you can only become accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you!"


To top things off a video from the school staff talking and saying good bye to the students played giving everybody, including those who couldn’t make it, a chance to give their words of wisdom and to talk about some of their memories. After a vote of thanks, the assembly tucked into the refreshments and had the chance to chat to staff and students about this successful celebration.

Big Bang STEM Event 2019

On Wednesday 18th June our Cheshire pupils went to the Big Bang Event held at Staffordshire University and had an amazing day!


The young people went into two lectures and actively engaged in a number of small hands-on activities run by local further education establishments and employers.

The STEM activities were a great way for our young people to sample different learning experiences in real life context, while also talking to colleges, universities and employers from the West Midlands region.

The first lecture involved a rapper delivering science through rap music and one of our youngsters even had the confidence to get up in front of 100 people to dance to fortnite music as part of the interaction! The second lecture was about drug investigations and how to identify unknown samples using chromatography and computer database analysis.

As the young people moved around the university campus they enjoyed participating in different activities including coding, key hole surgery simulation and using a radiography machine. They quickly realised that key hole surgery is not as easy as it looks on the television, however one of our pupils did come fourth in the coding challenge.

A fun, active and informative day was had by both pupils and staff!


Year 11 Celebrations 2019

Today marked the end of a chapter, and the start of a new, as our Year 11 pupils completed their final exams and celebrate moving on to apprenticeships and college placements.

Our staff have supported the young people throughout their time at our Oracle Schools and helped pupils to focus and achieve their best. This requires dedication, hard work and consistency from all parties and it is hoped that it will all come together in positive outcomes the young people deserve when they get their results in August.
In recognition of this our Congleton School put a celebration lunch together whereby home, school and office staff joined pupils to celebrate their time at school and what they have achieved. Staff all brought in items to create an amazing lunch which everyone enjoyed during an informal gathering.

Eid Mubarak

Two of our young people have been observing Ramadan over the last month, which came to a close this week as we entered the celebration of Eid al-Fitr.

The beginning of Ramadan was marked in school with an assembly outlining the significance of this fasting period, and we marked its end with a celebration over lunch yesterday. Staff brought in treats and snacks for everyone, and all our young people engaged very positively in the celebration.
Eid al-Fitr is celebrated on different dates around the world depending on when the new moon is sighted. Eid is a one-day celebration in the UK, while in other parts the festival lasts for up to three days.
Muslims celebrate in many ways, one of which is the coming together of friends and family sharing gifts, food and thanks. As an Oracle family it was lovely for our young people to celebrate together and support their peers.


Bring and Share Welcome Back Lunch



The summer term started with all staff and young people getting together in our Cheshire School. A 'Bring and Share' lunch was organised to welcome everyone back to school.







Lots of staff contributed to create a great spread of food from healthy fruit and veg to a few not so healthy treats such as pizza and chips. We also had cup-cakes decorated with the 7 principles of our Oracle Model, which were delicious! It was a lively gathering and a great opportunity to engage with our colleagues and students over a lovely buffet lunch.



Everyone got something out of it... not just a lovely lunch but the opportunity to talk about what they had done over the holidays and what they were looking forward to over the summer term.
