Our two schools, Oakfield C.E. Primary and Arreton C.E. Primary, have been operating as a Federation since the restructuring of Island schools in 2010 when the three-tier system was abandoned in favour of the present two-tier system. As a result, all middle schools disappeared and several very small primaries were closed. Federating with Arreton enables us to enjoy the mutual benefits of partnering with another school. We regularly organise school trips, visits from guest speakers and theatre company performances together.
