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 curriculum plus activities
  • Equality of opportunity for all of our students and staff.

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.
