Oak Field School


Welcome to Oak Field School!


We hope our website will give you a flavour of the exciting learning adventures, opportunities and current projects at our school, and of our energetic, ambitious and supportive school community.  For a quick insight into our school, do watch our 4-minute video, which we really enjoyed making together. 


Our vision for Oak Field School, rooted in its long-established ethos and values, is of a vibrant, thriving and diverse learning community. It is of the highest quality teaching and learning, delivered through a dynamic, engaging and meaningful curriculum. This is a curriculum which offers all our pupils lots of different opportunities, and which draws out their curiosity, resilience, choice-making and independence skills, to support them to become aspirational, confident, lifelong learners who are fully equipped to embrace challenges. It is of an outward-facing school whose pupils are active, engaged and visible participants in the local and wider community, with all its richness of real-life experiences (see the Pestalozzi quotation in the school’s mission statement). It is of a safe, supportive, respectful and caring environment where pupils, families, staff, multi-disciplinary teams, and other professionals have high expectations and work together in active, holistic partnership. We aim to maximise opportunity and minimise barriers, and to seek and provide excellence, both in and beyond school. Oak Field is about creative and committed teamwork, in its widest sense.  


In Summer 2 2024, we’re bursting with energy! Our youngest pupils are enjoying exploring the rain forest with Jabuti the Tortoise, KS2 are getting sporty with the Olympics, and KS3 are learning about Oceans and Climate. In the 14-19 Phase, we're trying to solve the mystery of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night, and some of the 6th Form are rehearsing a scene from Romeo and Juliet for the RSC Playmaking Festival at the Theatre Royal in July. And we’re all really looking forward to RSE Day ('Embracing Change') on Thursday 27 June and 'Going for Gold' at Harvey Hadden on Tuesday 09 July.


We've been developing some exciting project ideas for our brand new Professor Penny's Theatre of Possibilities and are delighted to welcome the HandMade Theatre Company for a 5-day residency to launch this in July. We're also looking forward to the Great Little Orchestra project working with us for 2 days. In terms of sport, we're really enjoying kurling, and will soon be off to Belvoir Castle for the annual cricket competition.  Our new lunchtime clubs are thriving - especially archery - and pupils and parents are enjoying our after school and Saturday morning pool fun sessions. On Saturday 13 July it's our annual Summer Fun Afternoon, and we'd love lots of Oak Field families and friends to join us! 


If you’d like to come and see us, do contact us - we are always really keen to welcome visitors. And if you come on Weds-Fri, you can enjoy a very good barista coffee in Café 1! We are really looking forward to meeting you.
