Oak Hill First School opened in September 2001 to serve the well-established districts of Lodge Park and Greenlands. 


The school is a large 3 form entry first school with accommodation for 450 pupils (aged 4-9) plus 78 part time places for Nursery children (aged 3-4).  Since September 2017 we have been offering full time places in Nursery. The school is subdivided into 3 phases.  The Foundation Stage (ages 3-5), Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7) and Key Stage 2 (ages 7-9).  Each Key Stage is led by a non-class based Assistant Headteacher.  The three Assistant Headteachers, along with the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and School Business Manager make up our effective Leadership and Management team. 




Staff and pupils enjoy working in an attractive and well-resourced and well maintained environment.  The school offers good sized classrooms, a large hall with a stage, a music/drama area, a library, large practical areas and the exclusive use of the Children’s Centre.  The school has significantly invested and continues to maintain an extensive range of  ICT hardware.  




The majority of our pupils transfer to Woodfield Academy School who are on our neighbouring site.  The grounds are spacious with extensive views to the east over the surrounding countryside. We have a forest school onsite which is developed by two co-ordinators. 




We value working collaboratively with other local schools and have established an informal network providing support for each other.  In addition the school is currently in the process of working with the Central Region Schools Trust with the intention of formally joining them in September 2024. 




Developing and improving the quality of provision for our pupils is exciting and we are keen to appoint staff who are enthusiastic, well-motivated and committed to support us in moving forward to secure the best possible education and care for pupils.
