Welcome to Oak Wood School

Oak Wood School is committed to the idea that education goes beyond the reaches of the classroom and that young people can learn a great deal by taking part in educational visits and activities outside of timetabled lessons and home.

Oak Wood School is a vibrant, innovative and aspirational community where pupils and students are encouraged to aim high to achieve their personal goals. We are a popular 11-18 mixed comprehensive Foundation School that serves its local community in Hillingdon with over 1000 pupils and students.

At Oak Wood School we value the achievements of every pupil and student no matter what their abilities or talents. Young people are at the heart of all that we do. We are a truly comprehensive school and celebrate our diversity. Our high expectations of every pupil, and a caring, respectful and supportive core ethos – We Dream, We Learn, We Grow – propels us constantly to advocate that pupils and students are not limited in their choices.

We are extremely proud of our pupils. They are confident, articulate and thoughtful pupils who continually impress with their talents and energy. We regularly celebrate the many and varied successes of individuals and groups and are proud of our inclusive approach. It goes without saying that we want every pupil who joins us to develop into a successful young adult, but we also want to empower them to determine what success looks like for themselves. What is right for one is not necessarily right for another. It is important that each child has the chance to forge their own pathway, both while they are with us and beyond.
