I’m Jane Buttery, Headteacher at Oakhill School in Whalley, and mum to two of our pupils.
At Oakhill School, we pride ourselves on being a family. This is a school where the staff and the students have the time and space to enjoy each other’s company. Parents and extended family are made welcome and encouraged to become part of our community from the very first time they visit. Although the days are busy here at Oakhill, we will always find time to talk to you about your children.
Oakhill School is a small school, which means we are able to provide an individual education to each and every pupil. Our pupils leave school with confidence, self-belief and maturity because they have been treated with respect. Our values and beliefs are based on faith and this solid foundation forms good citizens who respect and serve others. We instil a strong sense of self-worth and a confidence that will stay for a lifetime.
We hope our website gives you a real sense of the wonderful atmosphere here at Oakhill School. Our FAQs aim to answer any questions you may have. We really are like a family and as such we guide, support and nurture the character, talent and educational ability of our students. At Oakhill, your child will flourish, their individuality will be recognised and they will be happy with who they are and secure in knowing what they can achieve in the future.
Oakhill has a strong track record of transforming futures. I believe every pupil has enormous potential and should be truly seen, heard and understood. Quite simply, we enhance every child’s potential, achieving excellent results and ‘value added’ scores.
