Fostering Personal Growth

In Years 5 and 6 at Oakleigh House School, we focus on harnessing the individual abilities of our pupils, guiding them toward a path of focus and creativity.

Our curriculum is thoughtfully designed to prepare pupils for entry into senior schools, and we have forged strong connections with local secondary schools to ensure a seamless transition.

Leadership Development

In Year 6, pupils have the chance to take on positions of responsibility such as Head Boy and Head Girl, Student Council, Eco Council, House Leaders, and more. This allows them to develop and refine their leadership skills within the school and the wider community.

These experiences are invaluable in shaping young leaders who exhibit maturity, empathy, and the ability to guide others.

Unleashing Creativity and Confidence

At Oakleigh House, we hold a deep appreciation for the expressive arts. In Years 5 and 6, our pupils take the lead in various artistic endeavours, including performances at the end of the Christmas term and school year.

This involvement not only enhances their self-confidence but also fosters their capacity to collaborate effectively as part of a team. Our commitment to the expressive arts empowers our pupils to shine as creative and confident individuals.
