Oakwood School is a primary specialist provision for children aged 3 - 11 years with complex educational needs.

We pride ourselves in providing a safe, stimulating and nurturing learning environment where we help our children to learn in bespoke and innovative ways to ensure optimum progression.

Our highly qualified staff coupled with our forward-thinking approach to resources and technology, allow children to communicate and participate in the world around them.

We promote a wide range of high quality learning experiences, catering for all learning styles so that no child is ever left behind.

At Oakwood everyone is valued and treated with respect and is encouraged to be the best they can possibly be.
