Welcome to Oak Wood School
Oak Wood Head of School's Welcome
Welcome to Oak Wood School. We are a vibrant and dynamic co-educational school that offers state-of-the-art facilities to our local community.
My role, as the recently appointed Interim Head of School at Oak Wood, is to take the school on the journey into the next phase of its development. At Oak Wood we set high aspirations for our pupils and challenge them academically. We champion the qualities of kindness, resilience, and leadership. We understand that these qualities, along with a keen interest in the wider community, are required for our pupils to become successful citizens.
Through our academic courses, our unique vocational programme and our extensive enrichment opportunities, young people in our care will experience a bespoke learning journey that takes them on to success in further education, training or employment.
At Oak Wood we recognise that every pupil is unique. We will find and nurture their individual talents and interests, encouraging them to grow both academically and personally.
Gilly Hare, Interim Head of School
Oak Wood Executive Headteacher Welcome
I am delighted to be working with the staff, students and parents of Oak Wood School as it continues on its school improvement journey. I am in my fifteenth year as Headteacher of Swakeleys School and have experience of moving a school to good and then outstanding. As a National Leader of Education and a Lead Ofsted Inspector, I have built up a wealth of experience in relation to supporting and working with other schools as they try to secure improvement. I believe passionately that young people have only ‘one chance’ in terms of their education and that we must do everything to make sure that they have the best experience possible.
