I am very proud to be the Principal of this all-through academy educating young people from age 4 to 16. Our mission is to support every child to reach their potential both academically and personally, a responsibility we all take very seriously.

King’s Oak is a proud member of the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) who will be supporting and challenging us to provide an excellent education for all of our children. By working with academies across the Trust, rather than in isolation, we accelerate school improvement and embed excellence in our Academy.

We have two key expectations for our students. That they WORK HARD and BE KIND. This simple phrase aligns with our determination that all of our children will feel successful and exploit all the opportunities available to them in their future. We have high expectations of our colleagues as well as our children within a highly inclusive Academy.

There are many advantages of having children from age 4 to 16 within the school. As educators we are passionate about supporting children to grow and mature from Reception through to Year 11; designing and delivering a curriculum and education across the phases that fully prepares them for their future. The intent behind the curriculum supports all children to have a foundation of knowledge and skills that deepens their understanding so that they seek meaning in their learning. This sets the foundation for children to have a developed sense of self and place so that they make positive decisions about their future, including progression to CLF Post-16 provision.

Please feel free to ask any questions so that you fully understand the quality of education and the opportunities available to children at King’s Oak Academy. Also please take time to browse the website and visit the academy to experience our thriving culture and community.

Thank you for taking time to read this message.
