The Year 10 boys lost their match 10-1 with Archie Neill scoring for KOA.
Wednesday’s netball games have been postponed due to staff illness.

Following on from the first meeting about our next Musical, attended by 60 students, we would like to invite those interested to attend auditions which will take place this week.

On Thursday 11th October at 6:30 pm we are holding an Open Evening for parents and their children who are interested in joining our Reception classes in September 2019. This will be held at the Acorn, our primary school. We look forward to welcoming prospective parents and their children when you can have a look around, ask questions and meet the teachers.
We also have two Open Mornings planned on Tuesday 16th October and Thursday 18th October at 9:15 am.
For more information please ring the Acorn office on 01179 927129.
Parents – please be aware we have been advised of a WhatsApp scam that is being targeted at children as shown below.
Beware: WhatsApp scammers target children with ‘Olivia’ porn message – Somebody calling themselves “Olivia” is sending WhatsApp messages to kids, claiming to be from a friend of a friend who has a new phone number. However, she soon cuts the small talk short and starts sending links to porn sites.
Our Open Evening for Year 5 and 6 pupils and their parents is on Wednesday 19th September. Parking is restricted on the King’s Oak site but extra parking will be available in the Kingswood Rugby Club overflow car park from 5.30 pm.
We look forward to seeing many prospective students and their parents starting at 6:00 pm.
