Students will experience a range of opportunities to develop these values in many areas of school life at The Oakwood Academy. These include weekly house assemblies, weekly tutor time PSHE/Citizenship sessions, drop down days or special events, extra-curricular activities, trips and visits and of course the everyday curriculum.
