Oak Wood is a vibrant, innovative and aspirational community where students are encouraged to aim high to achieve their personal goals. We are an oversubscribed 11-18 mixed comprehensive Foundation School that serves its local community in Hillingdon with over 1000 students.

Oak Wood School is situated in the centre of Hillingdon and serves a diverse catchment area. The cultural, faith and social diversity of the school is a great strength, and it is expected that successful applicants will be able to demonstrate a real commitment to the promotion of equal opportunities issues and achievement for all. Oak Wood School is very popular with over 200 students in the current Year 7.

At Oak Wood School we value the achievements of every pupil and student no matter what their abilities or talents. Young people are at the heart of all that we do. We are a truly comprehensive school and celebrate our diversity. Our high expectations of every pupil, and a caring, respectful and supportive core ethos – We Dream, We Learn, We Grow – propels us constantly to advocate that pupils and students are not limited in their choices.

We are extremely proud of our pupils. They are confident, articulate and thoughtful pupils who continually impress with their talents and energy. We regularly celebrate the many and varied successes of individuals and groups and are proud of our inclusive approach. It goes without saying that we want every pupil who joins us to develop into a successful young adult, but we also want to empower them to determine what success looks like for themselves. What is right for one is not necessarily right for another. It is important that each child has the chance to forge their own pathway, both while they are with us and beyond.
