Welcome to our school

Welcome to the website of Oak Field School and Sports College in Nottingham

“Summer is a coming in”, says the old song and this term heralds in longer and hopefully brighter days. This will be my last message as head teacher as I will retire this July. I am delighted to say that Patricia Lewis, current deputy, has been appointed the new head teacher of Oak Field School. After 39 years at Shepherd and now Oak Field School, it seems the right time for me to retire. I was delighted to have a tram named in my honour. Do look out for it – it is number 222. I shall still be In Nottingham to support the school.

The students are busy as ever and with the competition for Nottingham in Bloom not far off, they are busy in the grounds making sure that everything will be looking perfect for the judges. We were delighted to achieve the Quality Mark for English and Maths for the fourth time and well done to everyone for their hard work. The moderator was very impressed.

Reflecting on nearly 50 years in working with children and young people with severe learning difficulties – I was volunteering in a junior training centre when the law was changed in 1970 – it has been a privilege to see how much has been achieved by our young people. It is all about expectation and opportunity. I would like to thank all the many people that have supported me and the school over the years.

All good wishes,

David S Stewart OBE D.Litt.h.c. DL
Head Teacher
