Admissions

Admissions

Based in Hungerford, in West Berkshire, we welcome children aged 5 to 16 years from Reading Borough Council, West Berkshire Council and the surrounding areas.

 

All of our children will have an Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP). Each individual admission is reviewed carefully to ensure we are able to meet the child’s needs.

 

We provide a special educational provision for all pupils, tailored to their needs.

 

Parents and carers are advised to talk first with the SENDCo at their child’s current place of education. The SENDCo (along with the parent/carer) can then refer to the local authority admission placement process where decisions for referral will be made.

 

If you would like to make a referral, or you simply want to know more about our admissions policy. please don’t hesitate to get in touch

Excellent Learning Facilities

The learning environment has been designed specifically for Oaklands, with a range of classrooms, break out and sensory spaces for small groups and one-to-one teaching. The ground floor includes facilities and offices for meetings, school leaders and administrators. The first and second floors are designed for Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 3, with plans for the third floor to accommodate Key Stage 4 (years 10 and 11) in the future.

The school grounds are landscaped with secure outdoor play spaces for the pupils. In addition we will be using school vehicles to access local resources and activities including horse riding and outdoor activities such as Forest School. The dance and drama studio (Herongate Club), includes tiered rows for seating 150 people for school performances, productions, presentations and assemblies.

Our Community Partners

The school is partnering with the Herongate Club in Hungerford, a volunteer community club providing sport, leisure and learning facilities for the benefit of the whole community. In addition, the school will provide links with other community based groups and projects, such as horse riding at a nearby British Horse Society (BHS) approved riding school. Horse riding offers the pupils a sense of achievement, as well as an opportunity for enjoyment and to grow independence and confidence.
