Life at The Oakwood Academy

Transition

If this is your first experience of secondary school as a parent, many things will be new to you and whilst there are some similarities with primary school, many things will also be different.

The Oakwood Academy is part of the Redhill Academy Trust and shares its ethos. We believe as a school we should:

  • have high expectations of all students
  • value and celebrate academic achievement
  • provide consistently high quality, focused teaching
  • widen students' experiences through a range of extra-curricular activities.

We believe working in partnership with parents and carers will help us achieve our vision, that all students will reach their potential at The Oakwood Academy. We have numerous systems in place to support and strengthen this partnership.

Life at The Oakwood Academy

Sadly, due to the current Covid restrictions we are unable to carry out any of the planned activities for this term.

We have missed working with our Year 5 and 6 teachers and students over the last year and hope that in time we can continue to build on the excellent relationships we had established over the last few years. In the meantime, please take a look at the virtual activities that we have prepared for our feeder schools by clicking on this link.

A number of our Year 7 students have worked extremely hard to put together a virtual assembly about their first term at Oakwood in the hope that it will alleviate any fears for Year 5/6 students who are preparing the move to secondary school. We hope that you enjoy watching it as much as our students did making it.
