As you are aware the English Language January exam results have been published. Unfortunately the exam board has not declared any individual grades but simply stated a "Q" as a student's result. This simply means that their exam result is pending and therefore will not be formally published until August 2013.
We share your disappointment in this approach. However, the English department continue to do the very best for each student in their care. I can assure you we are tracking the progress of each child very carefully and I have every confidence in the department. As you know the school is currently top in Milton Keynes and this is partly due to the outstanding teaching in the English department which led to the incredible results last summer.
All week we are having competitions in the Library and the English Department will be doing some World Book Day focussed lessons with Key Stage 3 students. On Thursday 7th March, local authors will be visiting the school libraries at break and holding workshops for Year 7 students.
Visit your school library to find out how to use your voucher or win book tokens, cinema tickets and more in our competitions.

Despite the cold weather Olney market place was buzzing on Tuesday morning for the Olney’s annual Pancake Race. Ten Year 7 students participated in the Children’s Race, clad in aprons and scarves provided by the sponsor of the event, Teflon. Alex Blackburn managed to win by a whisker!
The school was also represented in the Women's Race by Year 13 students Emma Attwood and Laura McCoubrey, with Emma achieving 3rd place and Laura coming 7th.
Ousedale’s Brass Band entertained a packed audience in the marquee while they waited for the women’s event to commence. Some of our Year 11 students helped to provide refreshments, the proceeds from which will go towards the Olney-Newton link funds.
'Every Shrove Tuesday Olney organises a fund raiser called “The Pancake Race”. Many schools are involved in the schools' Pancake Race including some of the Year 7 students from Ousedale School. It all started when a lady was making pancakes and she noticed she was late for church. She ran with her apron, headscarf and a frying pan with the pancake still in it! That is how it all started.
We were involved in the race which was held on the 12th February. At 9.50am we gathered at school reception and made our way down to the Market Square. As we made our way down, there were also other schools heading down to the starting line. The children of Olney Pre-School raced first, and the students from Olney Infant School next. Then it was Olney Middle School's turn and finally came Ousedale School. We were all given pans, aprons a head scarf and obviously a pancake, all donated by Teflon. We all lined up at the starting line and when the bell rang we started running and Alex Blackburn won!
It was lots of fun and really got the children involved with this special event.'
