Wow what a busy week we had here at Oakwood court college on the last week of term,  very hectic but great fun enjoyed by all. First of all we ran our annual activity week where students had a wide selection of activities to choose from each day, from Monday till Thursday. some of the chosen activities included – The aquarium, Bowling, Beach, Rock climbing, Cinema, Swimming, pamper session and many more. the students (and staff) had a great time as you can see in the photos.

The fun and excitement didn’t end there, we held our annual Prom at the Langstone Cliff Hotel. The Students enjoyed getting glammed up and suited and booted, with many of the girls enjoying a pamper session before hand.  Since this was the last few days at College for our 3rd year students, we wanted the to arrive at the Prom in style with a limo and a party bus and give them something to remember. So many photos were taken and students and staff had a ball. Prom KC (154) Prom SR (24) Prom KC (11) SR2 (26) SR2 (30) 3 Prom SR (3) SR2 (22) Prom KC (103)

To draw the final week of term to a close on Friday 22nd July we held our awards Ceremony, to recognise and acknowledge the achievements and successes of our students and staff.  It was the final day at Oakwood for our 3rd year students and emotions were running high for many.  we held the awards at Langstone Cliff Hotel and we were joined by many of the parents. we started by playing a brilliant Video the students created about there time and experiences of Oakwood. (this video in availiable to view on our You Tube channel phoenix learning and Care) we also had a demonstration from the students on what they do in their tai chi class, followed by giving out well deserved and earned awards. the Ceremony went really well everyone had a good time and we got to chat to parents and say our goodbyes to the students, this is always the emotional time for all and never gets any easier. Many of which will be returning in September but for some they will be starting a new and exciting chapter. Oakwood court College would like to wish all 3rd year students the very best of luck for the future and the upcoming adventures.

So that draws this academic year to a close and what a year it has been. come September we have a record number of new students joining us across both sites and will be at full capacity. so it will be fun In store at Oakwood next year, watch this space and hope everyone had a great summer.
