Oak Tree High school students have once again excelled in GCSEs with a massive 87% achieving 5 A* to C grades including Maths, English and Science.

Alawia Mussa: 3 A*s, 2 As & B
Adeena Gila;: 5 As
Bushra Bari: 4 As
Nadia Mohammed: A* in Arabic
Nicole Avery: A*s in RE & French

The school is building on the successes of previous years. The first cohort of GCSE students who left in 2015 have now gone on to achieve fantastic results in their A levels.

Ayesha Begum achieved the grades to study education at university and Rumesa Bari is studying for a degree in architecture.

Curriculum Leader, Dr. Kauser, praised the teaching staff who helped to steer the school to its GCSE success. She said:

“I am happy that the consistently good results have continued over the years and I am determined that future year groups will continue to achieve the best possible results.

Year 7 students arriving for their first term have been excited to meet their teachers and are looking forward to studying a wide range of subjects including Arabic, Islamic Studies, Enterprise, Citizenship and History. The girls are especially excited about PE as we are introducing new initiatives that include Glow Football and archery. Our new PE teacher, Stephanie Fidler, said:

I have had a discussion with the students and we are looking forward to engaging in positive activities that the students can continue with after school. We will also be inviting their mums, as health and wellbeing is a big concern in the community”.

One of the strengths of the school is the engagement with its local community, which help us provide employment opportunities and work placements.
