Oakwood Park Grammar School is a selective boys’ school with a co-educational 6th Form. The school has two specialisms in Maths and Computing and Humanities. In 2011, the school became a Converter Academy.
Our mission statement “Oakwood Park Grammar School, An Exceptional Learning Experience” seeks to explain our ambition for all of our students and members of the school community. We engage our students in their learning with high quality teaching and a wealth of opportunities both inside and out of the classroom.
Our Enrichment Days, which take place once a fortnight, allow our students and teachers to pursue learning in more depth both in school and through a wealth of trips to museums and places of interest.
We have a reputation for innovative approaches to learning and in 2009 we received designation from the University of Exeter as a Thinking School, one of the first to achieve this accolade.
We pride ourselves in the academic achievement of our students, but their personal development is also of great importance to us. Excellent pastoral care, mentoring and advice and guidance ensure that no student is lost in the crowd. Our positive relationship with parents and carers is also vital to ensure that the school continues to go from strength to strength.
In December 2011 we were delighted to be graded Outstanding by Ofsted in a two day inspection. The report commented on “the extremely supportive ethos which enables students to achieve highly in their personal and academic development” and recognised the “unswerving commitment to the success of every student”. We are not complacent after this pleasing report but will continue to be innovative and forward thinking.
