Welcome from the Headteacher


Welcome to the website for Oakgrove School. I hope this website gives you an insight into this exciting and vibrant school with an emphasis on traditional values and academic excellence. This September marks the Oakgrove’s tenth year in operation and the school has gone from strength to strength with its best ever set of GCSE results this summer. This is down to the hard work of students and staff, as well as the support of parents and carers.

As the new Headteacher, I look forward to taking the school forward to the next chapter in its evolution, keeping everyone updated about the expansion project, examination results, curriculum updates and school events.

I am fortunate enough to be leading an outstanding school, with some of the most gifted and hardworking staff any Headteacher could ask for. Parents and carers can look forward to their son or daughter being taught by some of the most well qualified teachers in any school, and supported by associate staff that make every effort for students to enjoy their time at Oakgrove, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, during after-school clubs or on the many trips organised. 

However, this does not mean that we are complacent as a school. With a rapidly changing educational landscape it is essential that we maximise every opportunity for students to succeed and celebrate success. In terms of moving the school forward, my Senior Leadership Team and I will initially be focusing on two key areas:

  1. The best quality teaching possible based on creativity, passion, enjoyment of learning and excellent outcomes.
  2. The highest standards in terms of pupil behaviour, uniform, respect and commitment to Oakgrove School.

Further updates and announcements will be made regularly, including blogs, video clips and website improvements.

Yours faithfully

Ian Tett
