Welcome to Oakhill Community Primary School
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school for your child. Choosing a primary school can be daunting – you may feel a little overwhelmed with information and have lots of questions to ask.
This may be especially true given the situation with Covid-19 Pandemic over the past couple of years. However, we are a friendly and caring school and we hope to make the process as reassuring as possible for you and your family.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be running Reception Open Days for prospective families during Autumn Term 2022. We have always enjoyed and valued these sessions as they provide you with a real insight into life at Oakhill. Here you will have the opportunity to talk through the admissions process with the EYFS Team, ask questions and show you around the Reception Classroom environment.
In the event of futher social distancing restrictions we will be offering Online Interactive Session with us or a 1:2:1 Personal after hours show around. We hope that these sessions will add a little 'personal touch'
