Welcome to Oakbank School


Here at Beckfoot Oakbank student achievement comes first. We have high expectations of all our students, and seek to ensure that they make outstanding progress, both in and out of lessons. To succeed in this, we believe that partnership with our parents is crucial and pride ourselves on our excellent home-school links.

We want our pupils not only to achieve their academic potential, but also enjoy school, to take part in an extensive range of extra curricular activities and at all times be perfectly safe. Above all, we want them to leave Beckfoot Oakbank as confident, mature young adults, fully equipped with the skills and knowledge to be successful in whatever they choose to do.

About us

Although we are an integral part of Oakbank School, we think that it is important that the atmosphere in the Sixth Form is closer to that of a college than that of a school.  To that end, we work together to ensure that we treat each other in a mature fashion and that we respect and value each other’s individuality.
Our A level examination results are judged as ‘Good’ by OFSTED and our AS level examination results for this current Year 13 are ‘Outstanding’.  Our record of supporting students into the next stage of their education is very good indeed, students go on to study at universities around the country or go into further education or employment.

Facilities available

We have a dedicated Sixth Form block, with a common room, catering facilities, an Independent Learning Centre and Quiet Study Room.

Additional support

Each student has an Achievement Manager who will work with the student to ensure targets are achieved.  An enthusiastic year team provide support throughout the school day.

Learner success

About 80% of our Year 13 students go onto study at university.
