What our staff say
“After 7 years as a financial analyst I wanted to use my transferable skills in a completely different environment. I was excited at the chance to potentially make a difference every day and help young people reach their full potential.
I have been at Oak Wood School for just over 3 months and I cannot praise the school enough for its welcoming and supportive staff. I believe our students enjoy coming to Oak Wood because of the exceptional facilities, particularly for sports, drama and music, and because of the inclusive community where staff ensure students are made to feel welcome and valued.”
“I love working with young adults, seeing them develop and progress as a contribution of my teaching pedagogy is very rewarding. It’s quite a unique career, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! At Oak Wood, we have such a variety of students and having the chance to nurture them in such multifaceted ways is challenging but very worthwhile.
Throughout my time at the school I feel that there is a real sense of support and encouragement between staff, which creates a fantastic atmosphere to work in.”
