Oak Field School Careers Site Eteach (8282)


Welcome to Oak Field School, Nottingham. We are a local authority community school providing for pupils and students aged 3-19 with physical, severe and profound learning disabilities and those with complex needs. In February 2011 OFSTED judged the school to be outstanding. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils access the very best in educational opportunities, taking their rightful place within their community. We wish to see the school at the very heart of learning within the local and City community. As a Sports College we work closely with a range of partners to ensure that health, fitness and leisure play a vital role not only in the school but in the community we serve. We want our pupils to be ambitious, to have a sense that they can achieve and to challenge others pre-conceptions. Above all we want them to feel safe, confident and ready to take their place in the world. The school is keen that the pupils have a voice in their community, which is respected and listened to. The School strives to be at the very heart of life within the City, providing a rich diet of opportunities. There are very active links with both local Universities from which our pupils benefit from the very latest in research. We wish to harness the very latest in technologies which will enhance the skills and learning of the young people. With your support we can make a difference to young lives. In 2008 the school assumed Sports College Status, with ICT as a second subject. The school holds the International School Award, Youth Sport Trust Gold, Ability Nottingham, Basic Skills Award, Healthy Schools Gold, eTwinning Award, Lets Get Cooking Accredited, Arts Mark Gold and the ICT Mark.  

About Us

The school moved into its new purpose built building in November 2009 and has quickly established itself with a reputation for high quality teaching and learning. The new building is part of the Building Schools for the Future programme and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have these wonderful new facilities. In 2011 we celebrated 40 years of state education for all children in England and Wales and the success of our pupils more than justifies the decision to enshrine such provision in law.
