Oaks Park High School students and staff are celebrating the best set of results since the school opened in 2001. With new specifications and a new grading system in most subjects, the school are very proud of their students. Headteacher Joanne Hamill put the improved outcomes down to the combined effort, determination and good working relationships between students, staff and parents at Oaks Park High School. “We are thrilled with the results and are delighted to play our part in helping the students achieve qualifications that they can realise their hopes and ambitions for the future.”
Our excellent results this year show how much progress we have made year on year. While it is difficult to compare grades between the new and the old systems the headlines speak for themselves.
Attainment 8 = 53.54
Combined English & Maths 9-4= 70%,

Nineteen students achieved 7, 8, 9, A and A* across the board. A special mention to the following students: Tarun Odedra (9×9), one of less than 800 students in the whole country to achieve this, Fariha Ramisa (6×9, 2×8, 1xA), Amber Solanki (6×9, 2×8, 1×7), Jude Mbroh (6×9, 3×8, A), Nirvan Barua (5×9, 4×8, A*), Yafi Sheikh (3×9, 6×8).
Oaks Park prides itself on being an inclusive school and works hard to ensure all its students meet their full potential, no matter what their ability on entry or background. A number of students beat their targets by two grades on average.
Ashika Joy’s performance really stands out. She beat her target in all but one of her subjects, with a 9 grade in History and 8s in English, English Lit, Maths, Biology and Spanish.
Head of Year 11 Ms Nicole Peters said, “It has been an absolute delight to celebrate the many successes of our GCSE students today. We are truly proud of them! These have been the most challenging exams to date however, Year 11’s many successes are owing to their resilience and hard work throughout their time at Oaks Park High School. We are confident that they will continue to excel in the future.”
As enrolment for the Sixth Form began, Head of Year 12 Mr Sam Fuller said, “It has been another excellent year for entry into our 6th Form, over 175 of our internal students achieved the entry criteria of 5 grades of 9-5 including English. This will certainly provide the students with a good foundation for when they begin their 6th Form studies.”
