About our Academy

The Oaks Academy is a school for pupils aged 11 to 16 situated in the South Western part of Crewe.  The school is part of the Congleton Multi Academy Trust and shares a very pleasant campus with Cheshire College South and West, and Gainsborough County Primary School. The Oaks Academy does not have a sixth form attached to the school.  There are many post 16 pathways open to our students and we aim to help them to make the best decisions through our Careers Education.


The buildings are well maintained and decorated and offer a warm, friendly working environment with many carpeted areas. The teaching accommodation consists of some general classrooms with well-equipped specialist facilities for Art, Business Studies, Technology, English, Geography, History, Mathematics, Modern Languages, Music and Special Needs. The playground and lawned recreational areas around the School offer a very safe and secure environment to all our students.  There are four Science Laboratories and four Information, Communication and Technology rooms. The ICT rooms are all networked and have access to the Internet. Video Conferencing facilities are also available in the ICT area. In addition there is a well-equipped library with computer access.
