Oakfield is a co-educational school for both day and residential pupils who have social, emotional, and mental health difficulties.

The school can accommodate a maximum of 80 pupils and has residential facilities that can accommodate up to 34 pupils.
Ethos and Values.
At Oakfield, we believe it is every pupil’s right to expect excellent teaching of an enriched and engaging curriculum, in a safe learning environment, which will enable them to reach their full potential so that they become prepared for adult life.
We believe that education is about acquiring good personal and thinking skills, developing communication and ICT skills; it is about becoming creative and reflective.
We believe that education is also about developing self-confidence, maturing socially and emotionally and becoming independent, able to make sound lifestyle choices based on enquiry and reasoning. All our pupils will be treated fairly and with respect. We believe we should set challenging targets for both staff and pupils, building on strengths and striving for improvements.
