Welcome to Oak Grove College

Everyone Matters, Everyday Counts

Staggered Start in September 2021

The start to term, at this point and subject to guidance, will look like this:

1st September Summer Holiday
2nd September INSET Day
3rd September INSET Day
6th September  All Year 7 (all areas of college) & Year 10 (subject based learners)
7th September As 6th September plus KOA, Year 11 & Animus
8th September  All students

Please note the change for Year 10 and year 11 students from what was previously advised. This is because of the availability of FE college provision.

Headteacher’s welcome

It is a privilege to be Headteacher here at Oak Grove College working with our students and leading a team of excellent staff, who are dedicated to providing the best in terms of education, care and support for all. We seek to develop the ‘whole’ individual within an environment where the self esteem of our students is nurtured so that they can develop and flourish. We work with a range of partnership agencies to ensure the best for everyone.

Oak Grove College is part of a wider federation of special schools including Cornfield School, Heronsdale Primary School and Palatine Primary School who, through shared governance arrangements, work to ensure the most effective use of resources so that the best possible service is provided for all. We believe in a partnership approach to all aspects of College life and we welcome and encourage full involvement from families, outside agencies and research and training providers.

Oak Grove College seeks to be at the heart of the community we serve and we wish the experience of every student here to be one where: “Everyone matters, every day counts”.
