Welcome from the Principal
Welcome to Oak Hill Academy, West London.
I am extremely proud to be the Principal at Oak Hill Academy. Over the past few years we have been on a journey of improvement and transformation and we now have a truly amazing school. My key belief as Principal is that all children who come through our doors should be inspired to reach their full potential. It is our job not only to prepare them for the next stage of their education, but alongside you as parents we prepare them for firstly secondary school and ultimately the world of work as adults.
At school we set high standards both academically and in our expectations for behaviour and we reach them! We always expect children to do their best both in their learning and in their social interactions in the playground and around the school. It is our aim that every single one of our children leaves us with increased confidence, resilience and skills to tackle the next stage of their education effectively.
We thoroughly enjoy working with your children each day. We value them as individuals and take every opportunity to celebrate their strengths and successes, be it in their relationships with others, on the sports field or in their learning. Children thrive in our caring, supportive and sensitive environment and we offer each child security, happiness and pride in their achievement. Every half term we have an award assembly to celebrate the achievements and successes of our students.
Oak Hill Academy is a very happy place to be. We believe that parents have a vital role to play in their child’s education and we build strong partnerships between home and school. There are many opportunities throughout the school year for parents to find out about their child’s progress or about our work in the classroom or simply to enjoy being part of our Oak Hill family, perhaps getting involved with our Parents’ Forum or helping at any of our fundraising events.
We became an Aspirations Academies Trust school in April 2014. The ethos of the Trust matches exactly with our school’s ethos and has enhanced the pride that our children (and staff) feel about their school. Ofsted graded the school as Good with Outstanding features in January 2017. The report is available via our school website
I look forward to meeting you.
