OPJS World War I Memorial
Oldfield Park Junior School, or South Twerton School as it was known until 1991, dates back to 1893 and is proud of its place in the community as well as its rich history. One area of which OPJS is fiercely proud is the sacrifice of a number of ex-pupils during World War I and this is reflected by the memorial in the Memorial Hall. A recent project, led by a local historian John Branston with support from the children and staff of OPJS, highlighted the stories behind the 33 names.
