Park Vale Academy Ethos

The Oakwood Academy Ethos

Your child’s learning and development is our number one priority, providing them with an education that will give them the best possible opportunities in life.

By offering each student a variety of educational pathways and exciting extra-curricular activities, we aim to cater for a wide range of talents, interests and aspirations.

This is achieved through a combination of excellent teaching and high quality opportunities. By continually improving our own teaching and learning and simultaneously developing our students’ independent learning skills, we guide young people on their journey to further and higher education or skilled employment.

Our active encouragement of qualities such as independent thinking, self-reliance and social responsibility helps students gain in confidence and take responsibility for their development into fully-rounded individuals.
