The Oaks Academy is a school which promotes high aspirations and expectations for all our students. We aim to place ourselves at the heart of our community. Our staff value knowing our students well and we are keen to provide a caring yet ambitious learning experience for them.

We aim for all students to achieve their potential, and to recognise and nurture individual strengths. To this end we offer a broad and balanced Key Stage 3 provision from which students can opt for a range of GCSE options. We emphasise the importance of academic progress, nurture a balanced outlook and positive attitudes, and at the same time encourage our students to contribute meaningfully to our community.

Our pastoral provision is focused on nurturing individual needs whilst helping the children develop into well-rounded and responsible young people. We attach an emphasis on our students being safe, happy and successful, whilst being prepared for their futures – in further or higher education, apprenticeship or employment.

If you are considering The Oaks Academy for your child I hope you find the website useful and please do not hesitate to get in touch.
