Why Do Families Choose Oakgrove School?

In a recent survey, we asked our current Foundation families why they chose Oakgrove for their child.  Here are just some of their responses:

  • "The ethos, the facilities and the fact that it's an all-through school."
  • "We felt like our child would be valued as an individual."
  • "I have only ever heard great things about Oakgrove Primary."
  • "It meets the needs of working parents with wrap-around care, holiday clubs and timings of when parents are invited in to school."
  • "The opportunities for learning and development, the attitude of teaching staff and the facilities. It feels like a really nurturing space for children."
  • "Oakgrove is an "all-through" school, they have well qualified teachers and focus on the physical and mental development of children."
  • "Modern facilities."
  • "I loved the facilities in the school and the Foundation classroom and large outdoor areas."

A Typical Day In Foundation

There is no such thing as a typical day in Foundation! To give you an idea of what a day looks like for the children, here is a short video link.


Benefits Of An All-through School

  • Once your child has a place at Oakgrove Primary they are guaranteed a place at Oakgrove Secondary. You do not need to apply for a secondary place during Year 6.
  • We draw on subject specialist teachers to enhance our curriculum – for example, all of our French is taught by a secondary French teacher
  • We use specialist teaching areas at the secondary site regularly: carol concerts and our Highlights musical are performed at the secondary theatre; the use of the art studio for some art lessons
  • Whole school events, such as the school carol service and awards evening, enable pupils to see their part in our Oakgrove School community
  • Our children have many opportunities to spend time at the secondary school and are familiar with the setting when the start in Year 7. This helps create a smooth transition to the secondary site.
  • The curriculum is seamlessly sequenced from EYFS to KS5
