School Description

Oakfield High School and College educates boys and girls aged between the ages of 11 and 19. They can join the school at any stage of their secondary education but the majority come at the start of Year 7. A further substantial proportion joins at the beginning of Key Stage 4 or at the start of the sixth form. All have a statement of special educational needs in respect of moderate learning difficulties, specific learning difficulties or behavioural, social and emotional difficulties. Some have physical disabilities, autistic spectrum conditions and other communication difficulties. Around one-third of the students are girls and almost all come from a White British background. More than half are entitled to support from the pupil premium funding and this is much higher than the national average for all schools. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. Oakfield provides an outreach service to other local secondary schools but none of the students at the school are dual registered. Some come from local secondary schools to receive a few of their lessons at Oakfield. The school gained the highest (Gold Standard) award for Investors in People in January 2014.
