Traditional teaching, academic excellence and success are of key importance here at Oakfields. Our school is located in Harwood Hall, a grade II listed building set in seven acres of beautiful grounds with a dedicated ICT suite and heated indoor swimming pool. Children have specialists for Music, ICT, PE and French and a number of peripatetic staff for individual music lessons and sports coaching. Here we nurture a caring, family atmosphere. Every child is valued and their happiness, security and personal development is paramount.
As a passionate exponent of critical pedagogy – dedicated to creating an inspiring school setting through exceptional teaching and pastoral care – I champion a holistic approach to education offering all children the possibility to succeed and to enjoy different aspects of school life. Likewise, my successful sports background and coaching success affords me the opportunity to promote an energetic and diverse extra-curriculum, along with introducing enrichment programmes dedicated to increasing opportunities for learning of all children.
As a proponent of learning-centered leadership, my vision is to create a diverse and inspirational learning institution at Oakfields.
I would welcome the opportunity to show you the school and see our children during their daily routines.
