The Bulmershe School Working in Partnership with Oracle
The Bulmershe School has benefited greatly from the working partnership with Oracle and there have been a number of successful projects:
- ‘A Day in the Life’ is an activity created by the Oracle and Bulmershe Partnership to give students an insight into the world of work.
- Oracle worked with the Business Studies groups during the last school year on projects where the students had to study ‘real’ businesses.
- Oracle has secured licenses through ‘Global English’ to provide software to assist students with their English language studies.
- Last school year Oracle hosted an Art Exhibition for a Year 10 class at Oracle. The students’ artwork was displayed in Oracle’s head office restaurant for a week and over 100 employees voted for their favorite pieces. During Activity week (July 2012) Oracle gave all Year 10 students tours of our campus during activity week which allowed the students to see their artwork hung proudly in our offices. At the end of the week, Oracle hosted the students and parents for an award ceremony where the winning students received prizes donated by Oracle. As a result of this, Oracle and the Art department have been discussing repeating this event plus other suitable projects.
- As requested by the school, Oracle has placed an Oracle Employee as a school governor.
- ICT teachers to be trained in JAVA by Oracle’s ‘teach the teacher’ training.
- There is a program of continuous Mentoring/Coaching/Training in place with both teachers and students.
- Oracle runs an apprenticeship for school leavers in our engineering department.
