Forthcoming OBA Events:

We are starting a new venture where we will be holding two or three events a year which we hope will be something really special and which will encourage you to block out your diary for these occasions. We will be having a celebrity speaker come to the school to tell you of their accomplishments and some of the stories surrounding what they have achieved. Alongside this, Mr Allison, our Head Chef, will be putting together a three course meal which will complement the evening perfectly.

To get the ball rolling (pun intended!) we are delighted to announce that the speaker at our inaugural event on Tuesday 26th March will be the hat-trick hero from the 1966 World Cup winning team, Sir Geoff Hurst.

We are looking to have tables for 10 people and just 8-10 tables on the evening so we do anticipate that the tickets will go quickly. Sir Geoff will then be interviewed up on the stage and we will be able to hear him regaling us with stories of his glittering career for about 45 minutes.

On the evening you will have the chance to have your photograph taken with Sir Geoff on your arrival and there will also be a number of other events during the evening, including a silent auction of some fantastic sporting memorabilia, to ensure a most memorable night. The event will ‘kick-off’ at 7pm with food being served at 7.45pm.

This is a non-profit making event and we have set our ticket price at such a level so that we can simply cover our costs. Any amounts raised after covering costs will go to the school charity, Roundabout, which is a Sheffield based youth homeless charity.

Please book your tickets by completing the Booking Form and emailing Mrs Howard We anticipate this being a popular event and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
