I am very proud to be the Principal at The Oaklands Primary School. We are a 2 form entry school in Acock’s Green, Birmingham and we ensure that the children are at the heart of everything we do.


As part of the Summit Learning Trust, we ensure we embed the trust motto into our school life:

  • Strength from diversity
  • Ambition through challenge
  • Excellence through curiosity


At The Oaklands, we truly embrace and celebrate the diverse communities that make up our school. We have built an ethos of support, respect, listening and caring in an environment that is safe and equal for all.


At The Oaklands, we are continually developing ways to ensure our children have the best possible opportunities to be successful. We know that through our enriched, varied curriculum, our children’s experiences are broadened, their knowledge and skills are developed, and they are continually challenged. We ask that children challenge themselves and aspire to be the very best they can be.


At the Oaklands, we know that curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement. By developing curious, inquisitive learners, our aim is to create learners for life.


We recognise the importance of creating and establishing positive links with our community and parents and value the support they offer our school.


I hope you enjoy looking at our website and finding out more about The Oaklands.
