About Us

Mr Gilbert

The Oakwood Academy benefits from wonderfully spacious and light buildings, set in beautifully landscaped surroundings. This high quality provision ensures an inspiring learning environment, where our students can thrive academically and socially.

We believe examination success provides our students with the best opportunities in life, therefore we have the highest expectations of our students and we are ambitious for them to achieve their academic potential. In addition, through engagement in the wider aspects of school, students develop the skills required for further and higher education and skilled employment. A rich programme of extra-curricular opportunities, student leadership, trip and visits and our successful Pledge initiative are just some of the ways students can enrich their education.

The Oakwood Academy is committed to ensuring students feel safe and secure. The experienced and dedicated pastoral team will support students to make the right decisions, engage fully in school life and monitor academic progress. We have a commitment to equality and inclusion that runs throughout the school catering for our diverse and wonderful community and student body.

Thank you for visiting.
