Year 6 Transition
Welcome to the Year 6 Transition section of our website. I am delighted that you have chosen to join us at The Oaks Academy from September. This year we are having to undertake our transition programme in a different way. This site will give you the opportunity to ‘visit; the school, ‘meet’ key members of staff and as the weeks go on, we also want to make sure you get the opportunity to ‘meet’ members of your form group. We are working hard, alongside your Year 6 teachers, to ensure that you get the best possible start.

Meet Your Head of Year
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.
