Set in over 100 acres of glorious park and woodland, Oakwood is fortunate to have easy access to a wealth of outdoor space, opening up the opportunity to take learning beyond the classroom.
Oakwood is superbly equipped, with spacious classrooms, Science Laboratory, Art & Design Technology Studio, Library, Music and Theatre Complex, an ICT Suite, Gymnasium and Dining Room. We embrace the opportunities offered through digital learning and to this end are developing the use of Learn Pads throughout the school to support the whole curriculum and the use of innovative technology such as the 3D science classroom.
The playing fields extend over nine acres, there is a heated indoor swimming pool (which is used throughout the year), floodlit tennis courts, an all weather multi-sports surface and two adventure playgrounds. There is also a wonderful Woodland Walk which is regularly used for walks, games and outdoor lessons by the whole school. There is a purpose built mountain bike track through the extensive woodland on the site and a grass track for cycling in the summer.
The Nursery has its own garden and covered play area, as well as access to the whole site.
The Pre-Prep have their own dedicated play area, with age-appropriate equipment as well as their own enclosed garden which houses Mr McGregor's vegetable and fruit patch where the children grow their own produce. Pupils help to look after the much loved Oakwood menagerie which includes chickens, doves, guinea pigs and Alvin the tortoise. The huge living willow dome provides a magical play area for all kinds of adventures!
The Prep School have an abundance of playing fields to enjoy at break-times, whatever the weather, as well as a wooded area and a fully equipped adventure playground, all of which promote independence and freedom in a safe environment.
