Welcome to Oakbank School. Here at Oakbank student achievement comes first. We have high expectations of all our students, and seek to ensure that they make outstanding progress, both in and out of lessons. read more.
Our Governors believe we should become an Academy School and join the Beckfoot Trust.
The consultation about changing the status of our school began on the 24th May 2016. The Department of Education (DfE) in London has approved, in principle, the idea that our school will become an academy as part of the Beckfoot Trust.
You are invited to a Consultation Meeting at school, at 5.00pm on 13th June 2016, at which you can hear more about the plans. You will be able to hear from staff at the Beckfoot Trust and discuss the plans with us.
Attached is the consultation leaflet that has details of how you can give feedback of the proposal.
Please see the attached timetable for details of revision sessions taking place during half term.
To make your child’s transition to secondary school as easy as possible we have arranged, in partnership with your primary school, a transition day and two one hour bespoke workshops. Please see the attachments above for information.
If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact Manny Delgado on the following email address: email@example.com
