On Friday, 5th February the Year 3 and 4 choir took part in Maidenhead’s Got Talent, run by the Rotary Club. It was a huge event and the children form Oldfield made us really proud. They sang “Bare Necessities”, “Beauty and the Beast” and “A Whole New World”, – A Disney Feast. Next stop Royal Albert Hall!

‘Farewell to Oldfield’ Event

Pupils past and present came to say farewell to Oldfield Primary School  at Chiltern Road last Saturday, 27th June before we move  to our brand new school in September. 

Hundreds of ex pupils, staff and parents gathered for our  farewell party at school. Photo displays showed pictures of former classes, stretching back to 1973 when the school first opened, while school musicians kept people entertained in the playground.

Parent governor Sarah Green, who has two children at  school, said: “The main purpose today was just to give past and present pupils, and staff, and anyone who has been involved with the school previously, an opportunity to come back and see the old school, and catch up with old friends.”

“It was fabulous to see big groups from 1979, 1980, 1981 meeting all their friends. It’s been a fabulous afternoon, we are delighted.”

Sarah added: “There’s been a lot of happy memories on this site but there’s also exciting times ahead with the new site.”
