All lessons are taken to our GCSE equivalent including sciences and the arts. Last year we had yet another 100% pass rate for all of our pupils in the external entry exam. This has lead to those students moving on to an A-Level equivalent education elsewhere- Our pupils are sought after by other local schools because of their excellent education!
WE ASPIRE TO BUILDING A SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL SO WE CAN RETAIN THESE PUPILS AND TAKE THEM TO NEXT HIGH LEVEL OF EDUCATION- TO A-LEVEL EQUIVALENT STANDARD- ALL UNDER THE OAKS UMBRELLA.
