Oakhill is a school that cares, and the family ethos of the single form entry Senior School supports and guides pupils through vital years of their education. Christian values, respect for others, good manners and diligence are all very important to the school, and pupils are encouraged to work hard and maintain high standards of behaviour and appearance.
We believe strong pastoral support is essential. Pupils are led under the guidance of their Form Tutor, and are assigned their own personal Tutor in their final years to help steer them through the challenge of GCSEs, and the choices which lie beyond Oakhill. As a small school we are able to give individual time to our pupils and GCSE students meet regularly with the Principal and their personal tutors to ensure that they are on track to achieve their academic potential.
From day one pupils are also assigned to either Scholars or Martyrs House. Our House system not only enhances the pastoral support, but encourages a sense of community and belonging as well as healthy competition. Pupils enjoy being part of the wider Oakhill family, and thrive, safe in the knowledge that their efforts are recognised and valued. The pupil elected Student Council is an active part of the school and they have been responsible for introducing a number of initiatives and improvements such as new basketball posts and additional seating for the Senior pupils.
