Oaklands School

About This School

We cater for Complex moderate Learning difficulties. A unique and outstanding school for 11 to 17 year olds! Oaklands is a school where pupils like to attend and parents feel safe in the knowledge that their children are being well taught and nurtured. A strength of our school is that we are forward thinking and committed to the needs of all our pupils and their families. We strive to ensure that we demonstrate our care and compassion but coupled with this we have high expectations and we strive to help our pupils overcome the significant barriers to learning they face. We are equally determined that our pupils are prepared for their life after school. The art work is based on sunsets, pupils were given the opportunity to be able to choose and work independently on their pieces. Art at Oaklands is taught throughout all key stage three, offering an ASDAN Award in Expressive Arts at the end of Year nine. Moving into Key stage four all pupils either follow a GCSE Art and Design or Entry Level Certificate. As a school we have a high 'CAN DO' attitude.
