Sixth Form

At the end of Year 11, your time of compulsory education comes to an end and we hope that, at that time, you will choose to pursue your Further Education studies here in the Sixth Form at Oaklands.

We also welcome new students to Oaklands from other schools at 16+. We will extend to them the same care and commitment which we show to those who have enjoyed their secondary education with us.
