Welcome from the Headteacher


Dear Parents,

Welcome to the website for Oakgrove School.

We are an 11-19 comprehensive school located in the Middleton grid area of Milton Keynes. We pride ourselves on our high academic standards, good behaviour and excellent teaching. In a short time we have become one of the most popular schools in Milton Keynes, a fact recognised in our latest Ofsted inspection which rated the school as ‘outstanding’.

Oakgrove combines the traditional and the modern. We have a sense of tradition as regards our smart uniform, setting by ability, high standards and excellent pastoral care. We are modern in our facilities, approach to teaching and learning and the technologies that we offer to students. We were the first Specialist Humanities College in Milton Keynes and English, History and Geography continue to play a central role within our curriculum. In line with the new academic year, the school converted to Academy status from September 1st 2011 under the government’s fast-track conversion process for outstanding schools.

I hope this website will give you a flavour of what the school is like and of the excellent education that we offer.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Barnes

Proposed expansion of Oakgrove School

The Secretary of State for Education has approved Oakgrove School's proposals to enlarge its premises to accommodate an increase in the published admission number for year 7 from 240 to 300 with effect from September 2015; and to extend its lower age limit with effect from September 2016, to ultimately provide up to 630 primary and 39 early years places.

-UPDATE- The planning application for the new building to accommodate the increased places is currently open for consultation, and is available to view on the Milton Keynes online planning portal http://publicaccess2.milton-keynes.gov.uk/online-applications.
