School Description

As it looks forward to its centenary celebrations in 2019, Oakleigh House is reflecting on the changes in education and in the school itself over the last 100 years. Now part of a very successful global schools group Oakleigh House staff and pupils benefit from the opportunity to communicate with and work alongside schools from across the world, sharing best practice and educational thinking in 66 schools across 3 continents. Each summer, Year 6 pupils eagerly look forward to a visit to Barcelona to explore the city and visit the British School of Barcelona, part of the Cognita Schools Group. Having received an award for excellence in its recent Estyn inspection, the school’s Personalised Learning approach benefits all pupils.  Inspectors judged the quality of support for children requiring additional help with their learning as being outstanding.  Equally, the school has received the Challenge Award accreditation from NACE, the National Association for Able Children in Education.  The award recognises the school’s provision for its most able and talented pupils. Pupils are encouraged to develop a growth mindset with no limit to what they can achieve, striving always to be the best that they can be. All pupils benefit from the teaching of specialist staff in Music, Drama, Spanish and a range of sporting disciplines.  Sport plays an important part in the daily life of the pupils.  The netball team has had some amazing performances this academic year, and remain unbeaten and are through to the Swansea Schools Netball final. Outside the classroom, there are more than 20 clubs and activities available to pupils each week and many opportunities for pupils of all ages to take responsibility for themselves and others and develop valuable leadership skills. The staff nurture the emotional wellbeing of the learners and the traditional values of manners and respect are fundamental to the ethos of the school.  All of these aspects support the pupils’ character development meaning that pupils leave Oakleigh House confident, well-rounded individuals with the skills for lifelong learning in the 21st century.

We understand that it is not always possible for parents to attend pre-arranged Open Events.
