Admissions

Oakhill is a non selective, Catholic independent day school which warmly welcomes applications from all families within the community. We believe that every child has the right to an Oakhill Education, should we be able to meet that child’s needs.

The best way to find out about Oakhill is by contacting Mrs Suzanne Spencer, the School Registrar, who will answer any queries and arrange a visit. Please call 01254 823546 or e mail spencer.s@oakhillschool.co.uk.

During the visit you will meet the Principal and key members of staff and the children. After this visit we normally arrange for two or more taster days to make sure that we can offer your child exactly what they need.

Academic Performance

We are a non selective school and we have high expectations for all of our pupils whatever their ability. The school’s overall profile is slightly above the national average. At all level pupils achieve above or at their predicted target and the majority of pupils are successful in securing a place at their first choice school or college when they leave us. We are very proud of our GCSE results for 2016-17, the second best set of results in the last ten years. 94% of our pupils scored at level 4 or above in English and Maths and our overall grade C pass rate was 87%.
