Welcome to The Oak Academy Trust

Our moral obligation is to help our children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.


Vision and Values

The Oak Academy Trust is a family with one simple goal; for all schools within the Trust to be the best they can be.

Our vision is that all children should be entitled to experience the best education that they can in order for them to achieve their potential and therefore help elevate the communities that we serve.

We believe in empowering staff, families and children through a mature and enabling relationship which ensures growth by developing self-knowledge.

The role of the Trust is to provide stability and guidance, so that growth can take place.

The role of the school is to take these opportunities and design a future that is not yet realised.

At the centre of our values are:

Excellence | Fairness | Accountability | Truth | Inclusion | Aspiration

The Oak Tree

A mighty wind blew night and day
It stole the oak tree’s leaves away
Then snapped its boughs and pulled its bark
Until the oak was tired and stark

But still the oak tree held its ground
While other trees fell all around
The weary wind gave up and spoke.
How can you still be standing Oak?

The oak tree said, I know that you
Can break each branch of mine in two
Carry every leaf away
Shake my limbs, and make me sway

But I have roots stretched in the earth
Growing stronger since my birth
You’ll never touch them, for you see
They are the deepest part of me

Until today, I wasn’t sure
Of just how much I could endure
But now I’ve found, with thanks to you
I’m stronger than I ever knew
