Welcome to Oakleigh
House School

With a century of dedicated commitment to education, we proudly stand as the only independent preparatory school in Swansea, South Wales. We nurture the development of young minds, beginning at the age of 2 ½ in our Nursery programme. Guiding them through the dynamic and challenging primary years until the age of 11, where we prepare them for the transition to secondary education.

Our enduring tradition of excellence has empowered generations of pupils to embark on successful journeys in the world, setting a strong foundation for their future endeavours.

Building Confidence

Our fundamental purpose at Oakleigh House is to provide a school where children feel happy and safe to learn and explore. It is only from this position of feeling happy and safe that children are able to thrive with confidence, and this is what we want for every child in our care.

Building Character

We encourage our children to take pride in everything they do, to have high expectations of themselves and to celebrate their achievements. This is done through exposing them to a wide variety of opportunities which allow them to discover their unique talents.

Building Resilience

Our children are provided with a bespoke education through a lively, stimulating and varied learning environment which provides them with challenge at their level and inculcates in them a growth mindset and resilience to face the challenges life will inevitably present.

Screen Time vs Screen Use

At Oakleigh House, we are committed to ensuring that our pupils receive an education that embraces the use of technology. Understandably, parents are concerned about the amount of 'screen time' their children are exposed to and the detrimental effect on their health and well-being. As such, it is important to understand the differences between 'screen time' and 'screen use'.

The definition of 'screen time' is the passive consumption of content, such as watching and streaming videos, online gaming, and scrolling through social media.

At our school we focus on 'screen use' - the power of using interactive resources and developing technology to enhance learning and actively engage pupils. This could be through coding exercises, educational games, collaborative projects, research activities, and much more.

At Oakleigh House our goal is to maximise the benefits of technology by focusing on screen use over screen time. To do this we assign every school child a personal device, as well as having dedicated PC time, we then focus on interactive, varied activities, and, in doing so, prepare children to thrive in our rapidly evolving world.
Our award winning* nursery provides a happy and nurturing environment in which children are sensitively and expertly prepared for school life.

We would love you to come along to see for yourself what makes our nursery so special and invite you and your child to join us for a complimentary stay and play session.

Our Stay & Play session is an ideal opportunity for you and your child to experience our nursery together and without obligation. Meet Head of Early Years, Mrs Wanless, and Nursery Teacher Mrs Van Hooijdonk.

You will see the well-equipped and comfortable facilities and observe play, interaction and development in a stimulating environment.

Our invitation is open to parents and children aged between 30 months and four-years-old.
