Oak Grove College provides an inspirational, safe, fun and stimulating learning environment for all of our students and has an enthusiastic, committed and dedicated staff team who aspire to provide the best learning opportunities for all of our students, all of the time. It is a privilege to work with all our young people who join us at age 11 and leave ready to take their place in the world as young adults.
Our core purpose is ensuring all of our students are nurtured to develop the communication, social, academic, life and vocational skills necessary to take an active role as citizens in the local, national and international community. This is achieved by creative approaches to learning where many off site visits are undertaken, the grounds are used extensively and a practical approach to the curriculum is undertaken, including our commitment and dedication to the Arts as a vehicle for self esteem development.
We aim to make all of our learners as independent and confident as possible. Here at Oak Grove College we are all immensely proud of our College and we welcome visits from families and indeed from professionals from other organisations. As a community generic special school we take seriously our commitment to providing the very best for young people while they are with us, but also in developing the skills, confidence and aspirations of the wider community to provide the very best for all once they leave the college.
All that we do is underpinned by our view that "Everyone matters, every day counts" and we work in partnership with our Federation schools of Cornfield, Herons Dale and Palatine, to ensure that this view is applied to all those with additional needs and who support and provide for our students. I hope that this website provides you with the information you require, if not please do not hesitate to contact us.
