Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the staff, students and governors, I am both proud and delighted to introduce you to Retford Oaks Academy, a thriving education centre at the heart of our vibrant local community. Our key aim is to support our students as they progress within education by providing learning experiences through a wide and varied curriculum. Alongside this, we aim to enthuse minds and nurture key life skills within the students as they grow and mature during their time at the academy. 

Our prime duty is to enable our students to excel academically. The academy places extremely high expectations on students to allow all to flourish and gain the best outcomes possible. High quality teaching, within a broad and balanced curriculum, ensures all learners are challenged to meet their full potential.

It is equally our duty to enable our students to develop socially and emotionally. Our exceptional pastoral care ensures that students are supported whilst pursuing their high academic goals.

We encourage students to take advantage of the vast range of enrichment activities offered by the academy. Our outstanding facilities and diverse range of trips and visits ensure that everyone has the opportunity to try something new or nurture existing talents.

We are dedicated to excellence in all that we do, and trust that by choosing Retford Oaks Academy students will develop into confident young people, ready and able to take their place in society as well-rounded individuals.
