Oaks Park is a multi-ethnic mixed comprehensive school situated in Newbury Park, Essex. Our history dates back to 2001 and the school has grown quickly, becoming established as a popular and highly successful establishment. We now have over 1500 students at Oaks Park and a large and expanding Sixth Form.
At Oaks Park we place great emphasis on achievement for all and accept students with a wide range of abilities. We are proud of the achievements of all of our students. We are a truly inclusive school and place great value on the development of positive relationships between students and staff. The ability to work as part of a team is something that will be of great value to students as they prepare for the world of work.
The success of our Sixth Form is a key feature of the school. Large numbers of students leave Oaks Park each year to go to universities across the country. Last year we were particularly proud of Esther Odejimi and James Forge, who went on to study at Oxford and Cambridge respectively.
Although we place great importance on academic studies, we firmly believe in developing the all-round potential of our students. Consequently the school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities. We place great emphasis on music, with large numbers of students playing a musical instrument. We have also developed an excellent reputation for sport and provide a wide range of student activities.
The success of the school has been recognised with a host of awards. We have just had both our International Schools and Investors in Careers Awards renewed, and as a result of the work of our Travel Green Team, we were recently honoured with the title ‘School of the Region’ for the second time.
We look forward to welcoming you to Oaks Park High School.
