This year's results place us among the top third of secondary schools in our county for overall GCSE results and in the top 3% nationally for mathematics.
This success is a direct result of conscientious students, supportive parents and having the very best staff in a school.
It is clear that when you couple high quality pastoral care with high academic standards and expectations, young people are able to flourish and achieve their very best.
These excellent results are testament to the talented and committed teachers that we have at Oakmoor who work in excellent partnership with supportive parents and hard working students at our school. Once again, our ethos of high expectation and aspiration which is firmly established at Oakmoor is demonstrated with our continued examination success.
When Ofsted Inspectors visited our school, they reported that “senior leaders have established an ethos of high expectation and aspiration which is central to the life of the school” and that “pupils are safe, happy and well looked after. Teachers are passionate about doing their best for the pupils they teach and pupils are making increasingly good progress.”
One of the most important roles I have as Headteacher is to ensure that the very best teachers remain at the school whilst appointing high-quality, talented staff.
Last term, I made several excellent appointments to our teaching team, all of whom joined us at the start of this year. This will strengthen the school even further. I am therefore very excited about the new academic year ahead as we work to provide an outstanding education for the young people of Whitehill & Bordon and the surrounding area.
