Take the virtual tour of Oakleigh School

Welcome to Oakleigh School and The Early Years Centre

"As the Headteacher of Oakleigh School and the Early Years Intervention Centre, I am passionate and committed to giving our children outstanding teaching and learning opportunities every day. 'Being the best we can be' isn’t just a school motto, it’s the very essence of the work the staff and our extended network of therapists and professionals aspire to for each and every child and family.

We ensure each child has an individualised teaching programme that includes a communication system and challenges them to achieve their maximum potential. Our goal apart from providing a strong foundation for learning  is to ensure as much independence as possible to assist them in adult life. The extended team within the school works closely with families to ensure the continuity of progress each child makes. We pride ourselves in maintaining an Ofsted 'Outstanding' award along with a Gold Star Award for our school travel plan. Oakleigh School is committed to delivering the best we can to every child and the families that come here."
