Shuffle Days are curriculum collapse days with a difference. They are theme days linked to Oakgrove’s Values and Ethics programmes and they embrace our key motto of Excellence, Innovation and Respect. We encourage guest speakers and the community to get involved on these days. “Everyday should be a Shuffle Day”, was one of our recent student feedback comments, and with plenty of student team and tutor participation we aim to have fun and new learning with Shuffle Days.
Educational trips and visits at Oakgrove are a combined part of the learning experience. There are many local and day trips to a variety of places aiming to embed key learning, and equip students with new knowledge and skills. There are also national and international residential trips and students can opt to participate in these. The trips have included ski trips, French residential, Sports residential trips, Geography field work visits to less economically developed countries and expeditions overseas.
