Welcome to Retford Oaks Academy


I have great pleasure in welcoming you to the Retford Oaks Academy website.

We are a thriving local Academy of 700 students. We pride ourselves on being a modern school in a state-of-the-art building with the very best facilities. We have excellent links with the local community and are well-known for our excellent teaching & learning, along with very high standards of pastoral care.

We offer the finest sporting facilities and a wide range of extra-curricular activities. We do hope this website gives you a taste of what we offer our students. We are situated in a bright, spacious, cheerful building on the edge of Retford. We pride ourselves on offering families “See us in action” visits during the school day. Please be in touch if you need more information or would like to visit the school.
