Welcome to the Oakwood School website. Parents/Carers can use their logon details to access our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), where you will find specific information regarding your child. I hope all visitors find our website useful and informative.
Oakwood School in Horley is an 11-16 Secondary School of approximately 1150 students and we are all proud of our School. Our motto has been recently reworked, in consultation with our school community, to ‘Achieving Excellence Together
’ as we expect every individual to make exceptional progress, whatever their strengths and interests. This aspirational approach permeates throughout our work and activities.
We follow the ‘Oakwood Way
’ which represents the principles of outstanding learning, through highly effective teaching, building self esteem, creating the atmosphere for outstanding achievement and providing opportunities to celebrate success. Our students’ development, enabling them to understand and be positive citizens in our community, is very important to us. The Headteacher Blog (click below) shows individual students’ success so that you can also join in the celebrations.
We value people at Oakwood, every person matters to us. Whether student, teacher or parent/carer, we understand that communication and working together are important in order for us to provide the best for our students. The website and the ‘Virtual Learning Environment’ are ways in which we can enrich the information flow, however there is no substitute for speaking with a person direct
and we warmly encourage you to do this if the website does not provide the information you require.
