The Oaks Academy New Intake 2021

Dear Parent/Carer,

At this time of year I would normally be welcoming lots of prospective students and parents through our doors, celebrating all the fantastic things we do. However things have to be done slightly differently this year, so we have looked to utilise our website to it’s full potential and try to give you a flavour ‘virtually’ of what we have to offer as a school.

I am incredibly proud of what we are achieving, especially during these unprecedented times. We work hard to instil in our students the importance of Respect, Resilience and a ‘Can Do’ attitude. Despite the adversity we have all faced, since March, we managed to achieve the best set of results for our outgoing Year 11 and have welcomed back all of our students, ensuring that multiple layers of support are in place, where needed.

We are organising a virtual Q and A event for Tuesday 13th October, via Zoom at 6:30pm. If you wish to attend, please send your email address to

In the meantime, enjoy watching the multiple videos from staff and students and browsing through the examples of work that has been completed, by our current Year 7 cohort. If you would like to discuss anything personally, then please do not hesitate to contact me at

I look forward to being able to see you soon

Meet Your Head of Year

SJ Williams

Head of Year 7

Hello all. My name is Mrs Williams and I am the Head of Year 7 as well as a Teacher of Technology (main subject is food). So, welcome the The Oaks Academy. I know this is going to be a great year for all of us to grow and learn together.

Before I became a teacher, I had the opportunity to hold several very different professional positions over a period of nearly 30 years; where “Pride and Respect” played an important role in being part of very different working communities. These positions varied from being a professional chef, catering manager, President of a students’ union to managing an educational charity; I have even DJ’d in Ibiza. All these opportunities have given me a wealth of experience and knowledge that I  share with the pupils I teach and support.

I started at the Oaks Academy, as a Food Teacher, in September 2013, and have been here ever since; this is testament to how great the school really is. I feel incredibly excited and privileged to be able to work at such a supportive and community focused school.

Teaching here has enabled me to see how our pupils develop and grow; and I am so proud of them when their hard work leads to great accomplishments, they can take with them into the future; striving to make a difference in the support of tomorrow’s decision makers.

I also have the great privilege of being Head of Year 7; the main purpose of this post is to support our Year 7 pupils to develop their own character through the promotion of self-awareness and responsibility; with the aim of instilling high expectation in the conduct and activities our pupils undertake as members of this Academy.

I look forward to working with you all as we together make The Oaks Academy into an academy to be proud of.

Welcome to The Oaks Academy.

Head of Year7, Teacher of Technology
