At Oak Bank School, we provide a secure, enjoyable and stimulating place to learn where pupils feel proud of what they have achieved. Through the provision of a structured, specialist learning environment, we build success through challenge, personalisation and innovation. Our aim at post 16 is to continue upon academic, social and emotional successes from yr11 whilst equipping students with the skills for a happy and independent life.
What makes the Sixth Form at Oak Bank different?
We provide a supportive education for pupils continuing their progress into adulthood. It is hoped that they will make positive contributions to their personal life, family and community. Oak Bank has been recognised for its “excellent teaching” and for our fostering of our pupil’s self-belief. Ofsted acknowledged our “outstanding pastoral care” and our “highly effective strategies for dealing with anxieties and emotions”.
We believe that by providing a continuation of our strong education and pastoral support we can give the appropriate students a more positive start to further education, skills for employment and life.
Sixth Form students will have access to accredited courses and learning which includes GCSE’s and recognised vocational qualifications to provide them with employment opportunities.
Personal development is an important component of Sixth Form. We recognise that students have reached a milestone in their lives where an independent lifestyle beckons. Becoming a well-rounded individual is about more than acquiring qualifications. Our curriculum is personalised and all students will engage with programmes that support their independence, social interaction and opportunities for recreation.
