Curriculum Vision

Our vision is for all of our students to have high aspirations and to be confident, independent and resilient individuals. What we term the Oakwood Learner. They will achieve excellence and become life-long learners, well prepared for the modern workplace. This will lead them to be responsible citizens who can make a positive contribution to society. Our curriculum and teaching approach is underpinned by the development of four fundamental skills, which we call the four Cs – Communication, Creativity, Critical Thinking and Collaboration.

Curriculum Maps

To support parents and students in understanding the structure of our school curriculum, we have created curriculum maps. These show the key topics and skills covered each year at school in all of our subjects across the year. To view our Curriculum Maps click here

Extra-Curricular Activities – Oakwood Plus

We strongly believe that the school day does not finish at 3pm, and we encourage all students to take part in our extra-curricular programme. These activities continue to allow students to enjoy and achieve, as well as building further on our fundamental skills – the four Cs. To view our extra-curricular programme, click here.

Option Choices

Our Year 8 options process supports students in making informed choices about the next stage of their education, and helps them to start thinking about future education, careers and training. To find out more about our Year 8 options process, click here.
