Welcome to our school
Welcome to the website of Oak Field School and Sports College in Nottingham
As we enter the summer term it is important that we celebrate our recent OFSTED inspection. I am pleased to say that the inspectors rated the school as Outstanding. When we achieved Outstanding from OFSTED in 2011 we were very proud as a new school. Three years later to achieve Outstanding again is just wonderful and testimony to the on-going hard work of students and staff. The report is available on our website but I will just highlight two or three statements.
“Students behave excellently and feel very safe in the supportive environment of this school.”
“Teaching is outstanding because staff have high aspirations for all the students.”
“Leaders and managers, including governors have an extremely accurate understanding of the school.”
We were delighted when the dance group at school were selected to represent Nottinghamshire at the My Dance regional event in Birmingham. Their performance at Nottingham Playhouse was excellent and their success was well earned. The dance group has now been running for 4 years and is very popular with students.
This term there will be several residential visits for students who look forward to having adventures in the countryside with their friends. These are important educational opportunities for our young people. We are running the Fundays Summer School again this year. For more details please contact school.
Students from the school continue to support the researchers at both local universities with their NICER research group. We are always keen for others to join.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parents, governors, volunteers and community partners for all their on-going support of the school. A school needs all it partners to ensure success for its students.
