First Inter-House Basketball competition

Oakley held their first Inter-House Basketball competition last month.
All of KS2 were in attendance to witness some fantastic team work, passing and shots.

Both LKS2 and UKS2 were a credit to the school by demonstrating their ability to work together and support each other to try and win the grand prize of the Basketball trophy and the 100 house points on offer to the winners!

Year 3 and 4 competed together and any of the four houses could have won it but Scotland deservedly came out on top.

Year 5 and 6 worked together to achieve the shiny trophy, in what was another hotly contested competition with lots of ability on show. It was Wales´ dominance that continued into this competition.

A HUGE well done to everyone involved, including all of the supporters who were cheering on their teams from the first whistle – to the last.

La Isleña minimaratón

On January 20th, 71 Oakley College students participated in “La Isleña Mini Maratón”, which was held together with the Gran Canaria Marathon, in the vicinity of Alfredo Kraus Auditorium. It was a fun evening in which both children and parents enjoyed a sports event sharing a space with runners from other schools.
Thank you very much to the children for their participation and to the parents for their collaboration.

Oakley competed in the first Inter-school swimming gala against The British School, The American School and Canterbury.

In what was a superbly organised event, Oakley did amazingly well in all four disciplines (breast stroke, back stroke, front crawl and butterfly), including the relays.

Oakley managed an incredible 28 medals out of a possible 30 races! 

Those who took part were a credit to the school and were complemented on their behaviour, ability and polite manners.

A huge well done to everyone for a very successful event!

Inter-House Football

Oakley College held their very first Inter-House football competition for the Year 3,4,5 and 6s. It was a hotly contested competition, where every side played each other. The score lines and eventual winners could have been completely different if it wasn’t for some sublime strikes, near misses and heroic defending!

Both UKS2 and LKS2 produced a wonderful afternoon of athletic ability and sportsmanship of the highest standard. They were supported by a raucous following of fans, cheering their every kick!

Eventual winners for UKS2 were Wales and for LKS2 were Ireland.

Well done to everyone for making this such a memorable day and we look forward to Inter-House Basketball, which will be held later in the term!

Football match

Oakley College started the new season where they left off; with victories for both teams.

Both were hotly contested by a very impressive British School. Oakley matched them in every compartment and managed to be more potent in front of goal.

Year 3 and 4 produced some sweeping attacking moves and solid defending to run out 4-2 winners.

Year 5 and 6 had to dig deep to be victorious 2-1. The game could have gone either way but some fine finishes, heroic defending and sublime goalkeeping meant that Oakley started off the season with a valuable 3 points.

Well done to both teams!!


William was proclaimed champion of Gran Canaria Frontón King Pro 2017.
