Welcome from the Principal
I am thrilled that I have been given the
opportunity to help the community establish Oakbank School. I had
the pleasure of meeting many prospective parents and pupils when I
helped WoWPG with the Oakbank Open Day in October.
Through this involvement I became captivated by the clear
vision for the school and excited by the possibility of helping to
turn that vision into reality. The West of Wokingham Parent Group
has been inspirational.
It has been exciting and enjoyable to work with such an
energetic and committed group of community members who evidently
share so many of my own beliefs surrounding education. The
combination of this exceptional group with the proven and diverse
expertise of CfBT is a powerful one. I have no doubt that the
development of Oakbank not just as a Free School but also as a
relatively small school will enable it to be a special and
distinctive community. It will also be different because it is the
school that the community has said it wants. It will be created by
the community for the community.
The last couple of months have been busy but
exciting ones, as we welcomed our first cohort of students
into the school. I hope that this site will provide you with some
helpful guidance whether you are an existing or prospective
parent or student.
