Welcome from the Headteacher

Oakmoor School is a brand new, state of the art secondary school situated in a 22 acre tree lined site on the edge of the South Downs National Park. 

We are a friendly, vibrant school with high standards and expectations.  We pride ourselves on knowing every young person as an individual and challenging each of them to have the highest possible aspirations.  The Oakmoor ethos is encapsulated by our motto: Ambition, Courage, Excellence.

Students at Oakmoor display excellent behaviour in lessons and around the school.  Teachers plan highly engaging lessons tailored to the needs of our students allowing high levels of progress to be enjoyed.  Students benefit from a wealth of extra-curricular activities, including trips and visits to enrich their experience at our school.

We benefit from cutting edge technology throughout the site and the latest specialist equipment for key areas such as science, technology and performing arts. Our main buildings surround a central court yard which includes covered areas for outside dining and seating areas outside of the learning resource centre for reading at break and lunch times. 

There is an abundance of green spaces which include several sports pitches, an athletics track, a nurture garden and a forest school area for outside learning and activities. The whole site is bordered by mature trees providing a relaxing and inspirational backdrop to our inspirational learning environment.

We are a very successful school where high levels of respect and conduct prevail.  Our success shows that when you couple high quality pastoral care with high standards and expectations,  young people are able to flourish and to achieve their very best.

Visitors comment on our purposeful learning environment and our delightful students.  To experience this for yourself, you are most welcome to arrange a tour of the school by contacting our office.

Head Boy and Head Girl Welcome

Ambition, Courage, Excellence

We would like to welcome you to Oakmoor School.  We are delighted to say that during our time at Oakmoor we have really valued the experiences and education that we have been offered.  Our school is a small and caring establishment that believes in having high expectations and achieving excellence.

At Oakmoor our teachers work hard and really care about each of us and our education as individuals.  There are many opportunities to extend our learning to ensure that we really do achieve our best.

Student Leadership is very important within the school and starts from Year 7 onwards with our Student Leadership programme and School Council.  We feel that we have a voice and can make a valuable contribution to the decisions being made within the school.

The student body behave well and fully engage with their learning; something which is noted and commented on by the many visitors that we welcome into the school.

Our students really do have Ambition and Courage in order to achieve Excellence.
