Welcome to Virtus House – I am immensely proud of my time at The Oakwood Academy and feel a real part of the local community. I very much hope that by being a member of Virtus House, our students will develop that same sense of community, mutual respect and a team ethos, that will help all our students reach their full potential.

Year Group Bubbles

In line with Governmental instructions to help keep students safe, we are implementing a new school one way system and Year group bubbles. The bubbles apply from the moment students arrive on site to the end of the day. The only time we anticipate students to mix out of their Year group is when changing lessons and when using the main school toilets.

The students will mostly be taught in specific blocks in order to keep the bubbles as secure as possible. For more information on Year Group bubbles, please click here.


Inspirational Quotes

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
C. S. Lewis

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
Muhammad Ali

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Nelson Mandela
