Oaks Park High School is delighted to have achieved a significant increase of 10% in the number of students achieving 9-4 in English and Maths combined. Both the English and Maths results have increased despite the new more demanding and rigorous reformed curriculums. Over 40 new grade “9”s were achieved and the overwhelming majority of courses were above the national average including English, maths, and the Ebacc subjects and improved on outcomes from last year. Headteacher, Joanne Hamill, is delighted for the students that their hard work, coupled with the excellent support and teaching by staff, have enabled so many to achieve these results in the face of such significant curriculum changes and challenges.

Students waiting to enrol in the Sixth Form were buzzing after the news that Oaks Park A level results this year were the best ever, beating other schools in the borough, even though Oaks Park is a non-selective school. Salise Caluda, Assistant Head, commented on this, saying “We treat and value every student equally, and parents should look at the progress students make in schools to get a true reflection of a school’s quality. 100% of students in our sixth form who applied to university successfully secured places this year. We are very pleased with our results this year, and they are the best we have ever had”.
