Farewell Mrs Vidal
We would like to say a huge thank you, goodbye and good luck to Mrs Vidal, who has secured a role at Oxted School. Mrs Vidal has been a friendly face to many, a point of contact and invaluable in being able to help both parents and pupils. We would like to wish her well in her new role.
With Mrs Vidal’s departure, the Multi-Academy Central team are already working with our school to ensure administrative and business functions are centralised. In the interim Mrs Knight, who has worked in the Lower School office before, will be taking over from Mrs Vidal.

World Book Day – Thursday 7th March
Don’t forget we will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March 2019. For this exciting day it would be great if the students are able to dress up as a character from one of the books written by the author of their class; but any book character is also welcome!

The Word of the Week is
Upper School ‘intransigent’ - unwilling or refusing to change one's views
Lower School ‘variety’ – lots of different things
