Student Voice

 100% of our students said they would recommend us, so let’s hear from them: 

I chose Oakes as my next step after Ely College because I wanted a small sixth form with a more individual feel to it, but to still experience a new place and make new friends and Oakes was perfect for that. Oakes has really helped me to express myself and to find new interests.
Year 13
I chose Oakes because of the great teaching staff here and the friendly atmosphere. I really enjoy the musical theatre productions, as it is a great way to get involved and feel part of something bigger than yourself.
Year 13
Since I went to Netherhall I was already used to the style of teaching, which I loved and I knew the environment. Oakes has small classes and they allow you to have more of a relationship with your teacher and you are able to get as much help as possible.
