As we are rapidly approaching Christmas I thought I would give you all an update about the schools progress. We are delighted to announce that Osborne School have been awarded our Inclusion Mark. This scheme demonstrates that we are a totally inclusive school that considers the needs of all. Congratulations to our recently retired Deputy Headteacher Janet Durham who spearheaded this project.

Osborne College has finally officially opened and we have appointed Lynne Williams as the new head of Post-16. Pupils are settling well and enjoying the new environment.
Pupils have been working extremely hard and have been achieving well in their lessons. We have also had four excellent curriculum days – Army Day, Food Technology Day (The Great Osborne Bake off), Maths Day (Money sense) and PDL Day (Anti-bullying day).
Alongside the pupils lessons we again performed Shakespeare to a sold-out audience at Winchesters’ Theatre Royal. 30 pupils performed ‘Hamlet’ to an ecstatic crowd. It was truly fantastic. You can watch the pupils perform on our YouTube channel (click on the videos section of the website).
The Osborne Football team enjoyed themselves at the annual Hampshire Schools Football tournament. They were praised for their good sportsmanship. We also held our open evening where the excellent GCSE Art was displayed and the school band Rubik’s Cube gave us a preview of the new music they have been working on. Rubik’s Cube also performed to the young people and staff of Naomi House Children’s Hospice.
Finally we held our annual FOS Christmas Fayre with the launch of our very first ‘Santa’s Grotto’ which was a fabulous success.
We are now fully in the Christmas spirit and all the Christmas festivities have started with the launch of the Christmas tree competition and visits to see the Cinderella at the Theatre Royal. This week we will also be enjoying Christmas lunch and of course next week another Osborne Classic Christmas show
Merry Christmas to everyone.
