Whilst the five schools in Oak Trust are all in close proximity to each other in the south east of Leicestershire in the East Midlands region, they fall into two different Local Authority areas: Leicester City and Leicestershire. It is the Trust’s intention to keep a tight geographical character as we feel that we gain from being local to each other; physical closeness enables us to support and challenge each other more effectively.
The Oak Trust is made up of:
Overdale Infant School, in Knighton, Leicester, has recently expanded to become a four form entry school, with 360 children on roll. We are a diverse, multi-cultural school and proud of our commitment to Early Years education. Our mission statement ‘Live, Laugh, Learn and Achieve’ is lived out daily in the school community.
Overdale Junior school, in Knighton, Leicester, is a three form entry school that shares a campus with Overdale Infant School. We take great pride in the strength of our friendly school where we promote creativity and the enjoyment of learning.
