Football Match – January 2020

On Wednesday the 22nd January, Oakley Primary travelled to the British School for their 3rd football league match of the season. The Year 3 and 4 team had some great opportunities on goal but their goal keeper proved too strong and the game ended 4-0 to British School.

The year 5 and 6 team had a very close game, with many excellent goals scored and some great saves from Juan. The game finished 5-3 to Oakley.

Oakley will face Pepe Dámaso in their final game of the league next month.


American School vs Oakley College match

Oakley primary travelled to the American school for the first football game of the season.

The Year 3 and 4 teams had a slow start as they got used to the new players on the team, but after 5 minutes an Oakley goal was scored from a fantastic shot. The team then started to relax and work together as a team to continue the pressure. In the end, the game finished 6-2 to Oakley.

Year 5 and 6s were hungry to continue their winning streak from last season and started the game with high intensity. The first goal came within the first minute and after that they did not stop coming. It seemed like everyone wanted a piece of the action, which resulted in the game ending a staggering 18-2.

A very impressive start to the season. The players should all be very proud of their performance and look forward to the next game.




Rounders 2019

The final house competition of the year took place in glorious fashion with an exciting rounders competition. The year 3 and 4 children demonstrated some excellent talent, despite it being some of the children´s first ever rounders game. England went undefeated throughout the tournament and took the final trophy.

The year 5 and 6s showed excellent talent by scoring a record number of rounders. Wales proved to be the stronger team and although Ireland came very close, stayed undefeated and went on to lift the trophy.

Well done to all of the children involved!


Inter-schools Athletics Championships 2019

On the 14th of June, Oakley Primary school travelled to the University sports ground with 53 children to compete in the Inter-schools Athletics Championships. Oakley competed against children from Pepe Damasco, British School and the American School. There was a great variety of track and field events that gave the children an opportunity to display their strength and speed.

We finished 2nd overall, narrowly missing out on first position. All the participants should be very proud of their performance.


KS2 Sports Day 2019

Oakley’s Key Stage 2 Sports Day ran with great success. England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland competed against each other for the gigantic cup! The children made their way to the sports field at the university to show off their kicking, throwing, jumping, skipping, hopping and dribbling skills, each one trying to score maximum points for their team.

After a short snack and a chance to catch their breath, the children then took to the 100m and 60m track. We were proud of some speedy sprinting during the races and relay races.

During the afternoon, the children were exercising their brains by answering some tricky sporting questions, again trying to add some much needed points to their totals.

The eventful day concluded with the Sports Day Assembly, where Scotland were presented with the huge trophy.

A huge well done to everyone who took part!


KS1 Sports Day 2019

On Monday KS1 enjoyed their exciting Sports Day. We danced, sang, threw, ran, kicked and skipped our way to score many points. The eventual winners were Norway, just 3 points ahead of the field. A big thank-you should go to both the Yr6 children who helped us and the parents who came to cheer the children on. Thank-you once again for your support.


Football Tournament – KS2

The Year 5 and 6s beat the American school, Canterbury, Pepe Dámaso and drew against the British school and coming first overall! This also meant that they remained unbeaten all season!

March 2019 First International Schools Volleyball Tournament

On Tuesday 19th March 2019, Oakley College hosted the first KS4 & 5 volleyball tournament at the University of Las Palmas (Tafira Campus).

Oakley competed against the British, Canterbury & German schools in matches which were up to 25 points.

KS5 put forward a boys team and a girls team and so too did KS4, which is a very good turnout.

Our KS5 boys team, captained by Girish N. took part against British School & Canterbury and were beaten by no more than 4 points in each game, which was admirable considering there was a lack of volleyball experience in the side. Canterbury went on to win at this age group.

Our KS4 girls team won their opening match convincingly against the German School, due to a strong service game from captain Itziar S. and Adriana M. They were then narrowly beaten by the British School & Canterbury in their next two fixtures and unfortunately finished third in their group, with the top two teams going through which were Canterbury & British – Canterbury ran out convincing winners of the tournament in the end.

Oakley College’s KS4 boys team swept aside all before them in the group stages and went through to the final against the German School. Bruno S. was proving powerful at the net and the technique of Ismael A. was proving hard for other teams to compete against. They were eventually beaten by the German School by a score of 25-21 in the final but performed really well throughout the day.

Oakley College’s KS5 girls team came away with medals and a trophy after triumphing over the British School. Each girl performed admirably and were very modest in victory as well as showing respect by shaking hands with those who they had beaten. Silvia M. was superb at the net and the nice touches from the rest of the team worked well with the power of Miriam A.

All in all the tournament was a great success. Our KS3 students came to spectate and made a fantastic atmosphere. Our GCSE and A-Level students officiated the event superbly. And finally the students who took part were a credit to themselves, their families and our school. We look forward to the next event.

Capture the flag 2019

The Capture the Flag tournaments this year demonstrated some fantastic talent. Each year groups showed excellent perseverance and determination.

The Year 3 and 4s played very well making a very exciting and close tournament. The champions were decided in the final game of the day with Wales playing England. However, Jaime from England proved to be too fast and agile for their defence and took the flag an impressive 3 times. As a result England won the tournament!

The progression in ability in the Y5s and 6s was noticeable with many showcasing some excellent agility to avoid being captured. Scotland were consistently strong throughout the tournament, winning all 3 of their games and the tournament.

Well done to all of those who participated.

Football Primary – January

On the 25th of January, Oakley Primary travelled to the American School for 2 thrilling games of football.  

The year 3s and 4s put on a master class performance and enjoyed a comfortable victory by winning their game 12-2. The goals came from a variety of positions and players. Mauro scored 3, Javier 2, Nicolas 1, Shedy, 1, Fernan 2 and Simon 1.

The year 5s and 6s, had a far tougher, evenly matched game. Despite opening the game with 2 early goals, the American school lead the score board throughout. Oakley were down 6-4 with only a few minutes left to play, however, 2 late goals secured Oakley a draw and their undefeated run. 4 from Pablo Q, 1 from Manuel in year 5 and 1 from Manuel in year 6.

Oakley will face the British school, in the last game of the season when the winners of the league will be decided.
