Headteacher’s Welcome / Ethos & Values

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to the website for Oakgrove School, an ‘all-through’ school at the heart of learning, proudly serving our local community in Milton Keynes.

Oakgrove school’s ethos for setting very high academic standards in a traditional, disciplined and exceptionally well resourced environment is well known in the area, and I am fortunate to be leading a school with gifted and hardworking staff. Parents and carers can be assured that their children will be taught by highly qualified teachers, who embrace professional development and specialise in curriculum design, with skilled associate staff who go above and beyond to support the emotional well-being of students. We make every effort to ensure that all our students enjoy their time at Oakgrove, whether this is in the classroom, on the sports field, during after-school clubs or on the many trips offered.

Oakgrove School is committed to delivering high quality teaching and learning, through an exciting and knowledge rich all-through curriculum, with an emphasis on developing a love of reading for life. The curriculum allows students to develop transferable skills, intellectual understanding, and a passion for learning in all the key stages. They are then equipped to succeed in public examinations, to excel in the workplace and become truly global citizens, who demonstrate empathy and respect.

I hope this website provides you with an insight into our wonderful school – a big school, with a big heart.

Shared Vision

Our shared vision is to enable learners in our all-through school to achieve the highest levels of academic progress. All students have the opportunity to demonstrate excellence in all areas of school life, enjoy innovation centred on teaching and learning, and exhibit the highest levels of respect in our school community.

Ethos & Values

Oakgrove School was established in 2005 and the school built its ethos around its core values of ‘Excellence, Innovation and Respect’. This has been at the heart of everything the school has achieved ever since.

The school has grown significantly since it opened, partly through the Milton Keynes’ Expanding the Best’ program, but also through the construction of our fantastic Primary & Nursery site to become an ‘all-through’ school. Oakgrove is now a 3 – 19 education provider, supporting over 2100 pupils.

Oakgrove’s track record of producing many of the highest grades in Milton Keynes and wider area is maintained year after year. It is this very track record of high achievement and success that all those associated with the school are proud of. Our students have moved on into the top universities in the country and have gained fantastic apprenticeships and careers following their time at Oakgrove.
