Opened in 1935, Oak Farm Junior School is situated on the 1st floor above Oak Farm Infant School. It has 12 classrooms plus a Learning Zone, specialist rooms for Music, French and DT, Special Needs Room, Medical Room, Offices, Hall with stage and P.E. apparatus, and a Curriculum Kitchen. There is also an adventure trail, gazebo, wild area and an extensive playing field.
There is a small garden with pond and an on-going project to produce and maintain wildlife areas and nature trails within the school grounds. The development of the playground and play areas was funded by the Friends of Oak Farm (the P.T.A.) who continue to provide financial support to the school.
In September 1999 Oak Farm became a Foundation School which will enable the Headteacher and Governors to retain many of the advantages enjoyed when a Grant Maintained School. The school continues to maintain close links with local schools and buys in some services, while also commissioning other school services from external providers to ensure best value for money. The school follows the National Curriculum and the education provided for the pupils from 7-11 is free. We admit 90 pupils of mixed ability per year group.
The school has recently been awarded the Silver Eco Schools Mark, and the Science Mark.
