Welcome to Oak National Academy.

The school is now closed , until further notice, except to pupils who are able to access on-site education. We will let you know when the school will re-open to everyone, as soon as we have that information. Parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response include those who work in health and social care and in other key sectors. Many parents working in these sectors may be able to ensure their child is kept at home.
