 Students at Retford Oaks Academy have again outperformed national results at A*-C in English and Maths, and have made exceptional progress across all subjects.

Welcome to Retford Oaks Academy

HeatherWainmanI am incredibly proud to welcome you to Retford Oaks Academy. We are a thriving and continually growing learning centre at the heart of the local community, so in that sense our "Let's Grow" philosophy could not be more appropriate.
However, this belief underpins all that we do. Our prime duty is to enable our students to "grow" academically. Extremely high expectations of students are there to allow all to flourish and gain the best outcomes possible. High quality teaching, within a broad and balanced curriculum, will ensure all learners are challenged to meet their full potential.
Equally, it is our duty to enable our students to "grow" socially and emotionally. Our exceptional pastoral care will ensure students are supported whilst pursuing their high academic goals.
Further, we encourage students to "grow" by taking advantage of the vast range of enrichment opportunities offered by the Academy – our outstanding sporting, performing, arts, ICT and technology facilities, alongside a numerous range of trips and visits, will ensure that everyone has the chance to try something new.
Our overriding goal is to "grow" well rounded young people, ready and able to confidently take their place in society.
You will find Retford Oaks Academy to be a stimulating and welcoming place, with highly motivated, well behaved, immaculately turned out students who embody the spirit of the Academy as we strive for excellence in all that we do. We are proud to offer an open invitation to "see us in action" during the school day and if you want to learn more about how we enable our students to "grow" so successfully, please come and visit us.
Heather Widdup M.Ed
Head of Academy.
