Headteacher’s Welcome

Headteacher's Welcome

Shire Oak Academy is an exciting and vibrant learning community where students enjoy great success in and outside of the classroom. We aim to provide an outstanding, positive learning environment and value the high quality of relationships that enable this to be true of all aspects of school life. Our Academy motto, ‘Turning Potential into Excellence’ is important to us as we prepare our students for successful adult lives in an increasingly competitive world. We support and encourage our students to try their best to achieve success in all areas and help prepare them for their future choices, not only in their academic learning, but also within other areas such as music, sport, art and drama.

Shire Oak Academy is popular and is the first choice school locally. We have a strong focus on academic achievement throughout the academy and develop our young people to be independent and resilient learners. We are immensely proud of our inclusive ethos and of the positive relationships that we build with parents and the local community. We believe that all students can achieve.

We hold high expectations of each other and seek to support each other in ensuring that all members of the school community enjoy an enriching and fulfilling experience during their time here.

The predominant focus of the academy is on working with students to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge which combine to create successful and independent learners. Our ASPIRE approach is threaded throughout our work in this area.We seek to provide a stimulating and challenging classroom experience in partnership with excellent student support systems.

When choosing a new school for your child, the best way to find out about Shire Oak Academy is to visit. We very much look forward to welcoming you.
