Oaklands School

Oaklands is a special school for young people aged 4-19 who have severe learning difficulties.

We have a bespoke department for young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties. Around 50% of pupils at Oaklands are autistic. At Oaklands we believe that all of our students can make outstanding progress. Our curriculum is designed to support young people to make progress, develop skills and become more independent.

New Oaks

New Oaks is our primary school for 75 young people located at our site in Woodlands Road, Isleworth. New Oaks reopened at Woodlands Road in 2020 following the redevelopment of the building. Provision is opening year by year and will be fully open by September 2023.

High Oaks

High Oaks is our 175-place secondary school which includes our 3-year sixth form programme. High Oaks is located on a purpose-built site in Gresham Road, Hounslow. We are proud of our success in meeting young peoples' needs, determined to continue to provide the best quality education to young people whose learning difficulties are severe or profound, and to autistic children who have severe learning difficulties. Our students' needs are at the centre of all we do to prepare them for the most meaningful independent and fulfilling lives possible.

Oaklands has been graded Outstanding by Ofsted and has advanced level accreditation from the National Autistic Society.

Primary Subject Networks – "The content in the sessions covers all aspects of high quality practice in Maths and it makes me reflective on my practice in class and how I lead and help develop other teachers."

Primary Subject Networks – "Meeting other subject leaders and sharing, makes me feel better about what we are delivering and that we are on the right track."

Develop your A level Teaching – "It was really nice to be able to talk to other A level German teachers as there aren’t very many and we could share our experiences."

Contingent Talk with Books – "Such a worthwhile project for Early Years, which you can see working right in front of your eyes. Well-planned and organised project, fantastic expert who inspires us all."

Get Hounslow Reading – "The biggest impact has been on our teachers’ enthusiasm for reading/books and their knowledge of high quality texts, finding innovative ways to engage readers through displays, book talk and story time."

Secondary Subject Networks – "There are so many useful takeaways from the meeting to help improve teaching and learning and they are things which can easily be put into place after the meeting."

Get Hounslow Reading – “There can be no doubt of the enthusiasm of Hounslow teachers and impact of their hard work on growing a Reading for Pleasure practice in their schools over this academic year. Many teachers said that the time to talk and share practice was what they valued most highly.” Charlotte Raby – Programme Facilitator

Secondary Subject Networks – “I really enjoy the content and the supportive group of fellow geography leaders discussing ideas in a non-judgmental, relatively informal way. The group certainly helps each other and fundamentally discusses relevant topics which are benefiting me.”

Get Hounslow Reading – "Very informative and helpful. A lovely chance to reflect. Excellent, enthusiastic delivery which would inspire anyone! You are very knowledgeable and sessions are well-organised. Thank you!”

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – “Thank you for the very detailed and thorough subject leader checklist. It is an extremely useful and much necessary exercise. It's been an eye opener. Thank you”
