We have high standards and high expectations. We always put the needs of our 271 pupils first. We strive for Excellence for Everyone at West Oaks, whether it be pupil, parent, carer, staff or community member. Our school is a happy and healthy place to learn. In the last decade West Oaks has been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted three times, 2007, 2012 and 2017 and earned National Autistic Society (NAS) accreditation in 2017, but we can achieve more.

Talent is our most important asset and we are looking for exceptional teachers to join our expanding and over-subscribed school from September 2018
