About Us

Oaklands is an excellent place for students to develop academically, socially and professionally. We are committed to equality of opportunity: we promise that everyone who walks through our doors will have the same chance to succeed.  Throughout the school is instilled a culture of high expectations and aspirations for students – we are driven by one defining question: how do we do better?

Oaklands students enjoy coming to coming to school. Preparing students for the future: from expert careers advice to unparalleled experience with university applications, we do all we can to make sure that students do not just thrive when they’re with us, but afterwards too.

Our Ethos of Work Hard, Be Kind and Take Opportunities helps promote students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness extremely well.

Our staff genuinely care for every student. Students know that their teachers go the extra mile for them and as a result there is a mutual respect not always found in schools.  Peer mentoring and support is built into the fabric of our school: sixth form students take an active role in the guidance of those younger than them.

Staff wellbeing and development are at the heart of what we do. We know that without quality and motivated staff, we cannot offer students the education that they deserve.
