Headteacher welcome

Welcome to Oldfield School

I am looking forward to meeting the whole school community; students, parents and staff, as I join Oldfield this September.  The strength of Oldfield is its teachers and students. The students are respectful and kind and benefit from the excellent guidance from a dedicated staff and I very much look forward to working with them and getting to know everyone.

The importance of education and our role as a school in developing young people cannot be underestimated. We want to ensure our students are fully prepared for their future careers and have the skills and knowledge to allow them to flourish and succeed.

At Oldfield we take a child centred approach, preparing students for learning and life. When students feel happy and safe, they progress in their learning, and this is reflected in their excellent academic achievement.

In addition to academic success, we have a strong focus on extra-curricular activities. Our programme includes sports, performing arts and a wide range of other activities.

We have very high expectations of our students with regards to their learning, behaviour and aspirations. This is evident in their conduct around the school, attitude to learning, examination results and the pride that they show in wearing their uniform.

If you want to find out more about our school then you can do so through our website and prospectus and also by visiting us to experience the school during a normal school day.

I look forward to meeting with you.
