Oakwood is a large and expanding school of over 1500 students. We have split the population into ‘Years’ which enables the students to be cared for in smaller units. Each student also belongs to a House and we encourage a community ethos. The students are loyal and enjoy the friendly rivalry around House activities. Their personal development is also central to the school ethos.

Our priority is to shape our school to fit the students’ needs and aspirations, rather than fit students to the school. For this reason, we adopt the Pathways Approach, where we help students ‘Learn to Learn’. Opportunities for elements of vocational pathways exist as well as accelerated progress and Gifted and Talented opportunities.
