On Saturday the action starts at 10am with Netball and Hockey fixtures, then the Archives open at 10.30am with tours of the School available - no appointment necessary.

At 2.30pm will be Lacrosse and Rugby matches at Noctorum Field, and at 7pm the Annual OBS Dinner. Booking for the dinner is available here, with tickets priced at £35 for adults and £20 for students.

There is always room for more players and if you would like to be part of any of the OB sports teams, please get in touch via [email protected], you will be made very welcome.

Sunday will see members from the whole School community take part in the Wirral Half Marathon, starting from 9.30am in New Brighton. You can sign up to run at and let us know if you would like to run with Team Birkenhead!

The School community lost a very special young boy in September 2017 and many have chosen to run on behalf of the Krishan Patel Memorial Fund which will raise money towards a memorial and developing the play facilities at Little School, an area which Krishan loved. It is also hoped to make a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation. You can donate here:
