Goodbye Year 13!


So things got emotional today as we said farewell to our year 13 students 
 It feels like only 2 minutes ago since you were in year 7 back in 2011. We feel very proud and humbled to have watched you grow into mature adults.
“Best wishes and congratulations to our fantastic Year 13 students who left school today. Good Luck in your exams and have a fabulous summer” – Miss Brown
Be happy, stay positive, and aim for the stars. Farewell.

School Chaplaincy Service


Who they are and what they do.

There are currently two, voluntary chaplains at Ounsdale School: Helen Trask and Gerry Denston. They are available every Tuesday lunchtime and can be found in Room 5, the Safe Room, or, if weather permits walking around outside or on the field. If you see them please say hello.

Their purpose is to contribute to the general wellbeing of everyone in the school by providing a ‘listening ear’ and counsel or just having a friendly chat.

A day of cricket


A mixed yr 7 and 8 cricket team of 10 boys travelled to Wolverhampton CC to take part in the Staffordshire Cricket Boards chance to compete competition. All the boys gave it a real good shot and played some excellent cricket. They won 2 out of 4 games throughout the day!

Special mention to the non-cricketers in the team who really stood out in effort and application throughout

Football Final Celebrations!


On Monday the 14th May our year 8 boys football team travelled to Dudley College to play against a very strong Dormston side in the final of the Dudley Schools Cup. On a warm evening our lads started well, demonstrated good confidence on the ball and solidity at the back. After around 20minutes however Dormston took the lead through a goal mouth scramble, they then quickly doubled it through a screamer of a free kick from 30 yards out. The boys however were not swayed from their efforts and Tom Jones pulled one back on the stroke of half time with a lovely finish.

The second half started with Dormston controlling possession, but Ounsdale Stormed back with a stunning 10 minute period of play where Tom Jones completed his hat-trick and Ethan Causer completed a sweeping counter attack with a lobbed finish. We were sitting handsomely in the lead 4-2 with 10 minutes left. Dormston pulled one back with a wonder strike from 30 yards that Goal Keeper Jamie had no chance of saving, however he did pull off a victory defining save with moments to spare, a save that Mr Donoghue described as ‘the best he has ever witnessed live’. Ounsdale went on to win the game 4-3.

An excellent display of fight, grit and determination coupled with brilliant footballing skills meant that it was an evening to be proud of for the boys and for the school. Very very well done!!
