Our school

Oakwood Primary Academy is a two-form entry primary school in Eastbourne, for pupils aged 4-11 with over 300 pupils on roll. The majority of our pupils come from the local community – a community we are proud to serve. We are a school that has undergone huge, transformational change, having been rated as a “Good” school, in all areas, at our most recent Ofsted inspection in October 2022. We are proud of what has been achieved but are committed in continuing to raise outcomes and standards of all our pupils.


Oakwood Primary has a Foundation Village for pupils in our Nursery, Reception and Year One classes and in our main school building we have classes for Year 2 to Year 6. We have extensive grounds, bordered by trees, and an area for sport, that our children enjoy using.


Oakwood Primary is part of Aurora Academies Trust, an organisation that is committed to nurturing and developing talent. It is an exciting time to be joining Aurora. Our seven schools spanning nursery, primary and secondary provision are all judged to be good or better by Ofsted. The Aurora school improvement model has really taken off in recent years and is helping to ensure that pupils in our schools benefit from the best possible standard of education. Our Aurora curriculum has been developed in house and is used consistently across our schools.

Visits to see the school are welcomed and encouraged. Please contact Mrs Susan Hubbard, School Business Manager, to book a visit or to find out more about our school shubbard@auroraacademies.org.

This post is offered on a fixed term contract initially from April 2024 to July 2024 in the first instance. There may be an opportunity to apply for a Teaching post at our school from September.

Commitment to safeguarding

The responsibility to keep children safe belongs to all of us.

Oakwood has a very clear Safeguarding Policy that is available from the school office or under our Policies section on the school website.
