I am an OAP now but I will never forget how the Reverend Mother pinched my arm very cruelly as she let me away from my parents of course I didn't dare tell them but that was what she was... Merciless I would say ....vicious....
Literally jumping for joy at the prospect of getting back to school!
Big congrats to the Y11 students at OLA this morning ... outstanding!!!!!!!
Ruby Smith (7b) used her screen time for this afternoon to do something a little more productive than Roblox and chatting to school mates for a change.

She did the music too.
Any one out there remember these girls

We love celebrating past pupil successes! Well done Tom!

"The Music Department at OLA was always a warm and welcoming place with excellent teachers. GCSE and A Level Music and musical extracurricular activities played a central role in my life as a pupil and the experiences I gained have proved thoroughly useful since I left. I've just graduated from a Music degree at Newcastle and will be staying on to pursue a Masters specialising in Ethnomusicology. I doubt I'd be in this position now were it not for the help and support of my Music teachers. I have fond memories of the school and hope to return for a concert soon!" Tom Wellesley.

Tom and his a ca****la group at Newcastle recorded this video whilst unable to do anything live due to Covid restrictions.

Chapel Corridor at OLA

Part 1 of redecorating/restoring the chapel ... the corridor now showcases original embroidery samplers created by the Sisters of Mercy, hand crafted paper flowers created by Grace Hummerston pupil at OLA, a Mother and Child painting created using sweet wrappers by a past OLA pupil and the stations of the cross prints found in the school archives.
Next step, the floor! It’s going to be beautiful again!

Heat wave! Don’t forget your sun hats!

The lower school children were jumping for joy today, because they finally got to try out their brand new PA donated sun caps from the uniform shop! Long may the sun last! Thank you OLA PA!

As the heatwave hits Oxfordshire, I bet our pupils are wishing they were at school swimming in our 25m x 8.5m four lane pool.

Our Story

OLA is a small, independent day school for students aged 7 to 18, offering a highly successful fun and innovative learning experience in a happy and friendly community.

The school’s success comes from a combination of four factors which create the unique OLA learning adventure. Each child embarks on a journey that uncovers their full potential and nurtures them to achieve, enabling them to thrive both academically and as a person.

1. Small school: With under 450 pupils in total, OLA offers everyone the possibility of representing the school in a wide range of confidence-developing activities, including sport, drama, music, academic competitions and other chances to thrive, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and Young Enterprise

2. Small classes: We have a very high teacher to pupil ratio, meaning our class sizes are smaller than you will find elsewhere. OLA provides a more individual learning experience that fully nurtures academic potential and regularly delivers success beyond expectation
