What the pupils say


      My name is Molly and I have loved my time at OLA especially because of the supportive and kind teachers. I was a House Captain and then a Prefect. Despite all of the work and club commitments, I can still find time to pop down to Café Mall for one of their speciality coffees!

      My name is Katie and I must admit that I was nervous when I joined in Y7 without knowing anyone. I didn’t need to be; the school helped me settle so quickly and now I have lots of friends including my French Exchange student. My favourite things at OLA are Sport, Textiles and French.

      My name is John and I absolutely love Design Technology. I am also a Drama Scholar. After making a spectacular entrance in a Sports Car as Toad of Toad Hall a couple of years ago, my most recent character was last seen being eaten by a giant plant in The Little Shop of Horrors!

      I love OLA School because everyone is kind and supportive and our lessons are a lot of fun. My favourite subject is History but I like English too. My uncle and my Granny are both authors and my uncle came to school on World Book Day. I want to become an author too.
