We believe that all students should be able to thrive in mainstream school however we know that for a small percentage of students this is not always possible. Oakwood School provides opportunities for secondary school aged students who have disengaged from school or where a mainstream school learning environment is seen to be inappropriate to meet the young person’s needs
The background of students at Oakwood School is diverse but they have in common the experience of trauma in their lives through for example, violence, family breakdown and associated mental health issues. Often young people have not engaged in learning as a result of chronic anxiety, or specific learning or language difficulties.
Oakwood School provides a safe and supportive learning environment that enables young people to reconnect with teachers and learning as embodied in Oakwood’s intent of “Learning, Respect and Empowerment”.
