Fame Jr – Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th March

Oak Grove College return for their next school production of Fame, which promises to be a colourful and energetic show that’ll get your feet tapping!

Fame Jr. is the bittersweet, but ultimately inspiring, story of a diverse group of students who commit to four years of gruelling artistic and academic work. With humour and insight, the show explores the issues that confront many young people today. “Remember, remember, remember…”

Tickets are still available via Worthing Theatres website for both Wednesday 14th and 15th March –


Quiz Night 2/3/18

Quiz night that was being held at Palatine School in aid of Friends of Oak Grove this evening has been cancelled.

Thank you to all families for their perseverance this week and for ensuring that students were in college, properly dressed and ready for learning. My thanks also to all staff who have ensured OGC has been safe and productive, when open, and those staff who live further afield, especially in Southsea, Horsham, Brighton, Hove and Chichester who have all managed to get into work every day even after some difficult journeys. The premises team have done a great job this week in keeping the site safe.

Thanks also to transport teams for their work in getting students to college sensibly and safely.

All of this is much appreciated and we can be thankful we have not seen the horrific conditions that many parts of the country have experienced.

Hopefully it will warm up now and we can get on with spring and the lighter days.

I hope you all have a good, warm and safe weekend.


Fame Rehearsal Saturday 03/03/18

The forecast for tomorrow is looking much better and we are still planning to go ahead with the rehearsal for Fame. Students received a letter about times to be at college a couple of weeks ago and these are different for specific students.  Please keep an eye on the website or our Facebook page for any updates to this.

Update – Friday 2nd March

College will open today as the area around College is clear  and what is forecasted for Worthing is for less snow than other areas. Please only send your child into College if it is safe from where you live and you are confident you can get them home should transport be unable to do so. We appreciate many of you do not live in Worthing and the situation is worse in other areas. Please only travel if it is safe. It is possible the situation will deteriorate in the day and we will have to shut early. Please stay contactable and make preparations for an early pick up if transport are unable to collect.

Thank you for your support over this last week. The fluctuating weather reports and changing conditions at the times decisions need to be made to support the bus crews and difficulties of ensuing safety on the roads for a population that travels in on buses from Selsey, Horsham, Billingshurst, Bognor and Shoreham has made it a challenging week and we appreciate your support.

Have a safe and warm weekend and we look forward to business as usual next week

Update for Friday 2nd March

As weather reports continue to change and conditions are unpredictable the decision about whether or not we will open will be made in the morning. This will be communicated via the website, twitter, Facebook and text messages just before 7am.

Thank you for your continued support. Have a safe and warm evening.
