We are committed to providing first class teaching and facilities across the curriculum.
The school day starts with registration and then lessons are timetabled either side of morning and lunchtime breaks when the children are encouraged to play outside whenever possible.
We combine the traditional, Maths, English, Science, French and The Humanities with the additional namely Art, Music, Design, Drama and PHSE. Our computer room is well used for whole class teaching and each classroom has at least one PC or Apple Mac. All computers are networked with filtered secure internet access and e-mail.
For those pupils who need that little extra help to succeed we have Special Needs support in Maths and English. Then there is the unusual……….
We enjoy current affairs and general knowledge quizzes and competitions with the staff taking part as well. Our evening activities, open to all pupils whether they stay overnight or not, are extremely popular and include Stone Carving which is taught by sculptors from the Isle of Purbeck, famous for its wonderful stone.
Although we understand the importance of exams we know that the value of an OMH education cannot be measured so easily. Mutual respect between teachers and children encourages progress.
