About Oakway Academy

 Oakway Academy is part of Hatton Academies Trust, a network consisting of three primary academies, one secondary academy and a small central team. All of our academies are based locally in and around Wellingborough. As an academy trust we aim for excellence in all that we do and work towards transforming the life chances of our students 

Oakway Academy caters for students between 4 and 11. It currently has 580 pupils on roll organised in 22 classes across seven year groups. Diamond Pre School occupies a setting on the site and provides Nursery education for families and the wider community.  

PRIDE values underpin our ethos and practices and visitors will see, hear and experience Passion, Responsibility, Independence, Determination and Enjoyment. Students, families and staff are passionate about our academy and work together to ensure continued rapid progress and successes. 

Oakway Academy joined Hatton Academies Trust in September 2014. The academy has an experienced senior leadership team with a clear structure of middle leaders across the school with responsibilities for subject and year group leadership. There are approximately 85 members of staff who each belong to a staff team. The CEO and Directors of Hatton Academies Trust are actively involved in supporting the leadership team and are regular visitors to the academy. 

Oakway was recently inspected by Ofsted in April 2019. The overall judgement was that the academy requires improvement but the elements of Leadership and Management, Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare and Early Years were all good. This demonstrates the rapid progress made at the academy over the past three years. Its progress across key stage 2 in 2019 was above or in line with that made by all students nationally in Reading, Writing and Mathematics. This has significantly improved over the last three years.  To see full details of the school performance data please visit: 


The academy boast excellent facilities and it strives to provide an inclusive and expansive education for all of its students. 

The on-site facilities include: 

·        New buildings opened in September 2016; ·        Stunning Sports Centre; ·        A purpose built Early Years base; ·        A large and modern library; ·        Extensive playgrounds and playing fields; ·        New adventure playground facility.
