Welcome to Oakwood High School

Inspired to Achieve

With a strong emphasis on respect for all, we forge effective and supportive relationships with both pupils and adults in our learning community. Together we maximise every opportunity to achieve success for all, inspiring pupils to achieve excellent academic progress.

On behalf of Oakwood High School I am delighted to welcome you to our website and to our school community. We are all very proud of our school and of our pupils. We are a highly successful school meeting the needs of all abilities across the 11-16 age range in a friendly, caring and hardworking environment. We are recognised locally and nationally for innovation, compassion and a determination to be the best we can be. We all understand the value of hard work, we care about learning, we care about each other, we know the importance of our community and we are all rightly proud to be associated with Oakwood High School.

Oakwood High School is a very special place. We are passionately committed to our pupils’ achievement and to their personal growth. Pupils are encouraged to thrive in all areas of learning; in the classroom and beyond. Every individual matters in Oakwood High School and we encourage every pupil to develop their all-round ability and special talent. Our pupils benefit from excellent teaching and an outstanding curriculum which challenges all to do their very best. We strive for excellence in all we do and all that we seek to do.

We are an integral part of our educational community: Inspire Trust. Our very strong learning community allows us to work very closely and effectively with our partner schools. Our pastoral system is well supported and ensures that pupils join our vertical tutor groups in a confident way which helps them to settle quickly and securely.

We are proud to have been selected, as part of the Priority Schools Building Programme, to undergo a complete school re-build. Our new and exciting school building opened to pupils in September 2016.

We have an enormous amount going on and Oakwood High School continues to be an exciting and vibrant school. I hope that by visiting our website you get a flavour of all that we do and all that we offer. If you wish to follow this up with a visit please contact anyone at the school or visit us on one of our many open events.

I look forward to meeting you.
