Headteacher’s Welcome

Thank you for visiting the website for Malden Oaks and I hope that you find our website both useful and informative. Malden Oaks is a small school for students who have found it difficult to access mainstream education. We provide a safe, supportive and stimulating environment where students are encouraged to have high expectations and to take responsibility for their learning and their school community.

Despite our small size we are committed to offering a broad and balanced curriculum which currently includes 16 GCSE subjects to allow students a broad choice and develop their interests. As well as engaging in the formal taught curriculum, students are also encouraged to develop in other areas with an extensive and inspiring outdoor and activity programme. Supporting our students in developing positive relationships, self-confidence, resilience, creativity and British values is crucial to our ethos and is not measured solely by our academic results but by the views of our past and present students.   I would therefore encourage you to watch our promotional video on the home page so that you can hear about Malden Oaks from the students in their own words.

Our school is constantly evolving and developing, in response to an increasing demand for our successful provision. Details of the considerable improvements we have made over the past three years can be found on the performance & data page. You are very welcome to visit us, to experience our unique atmosphere first hand – please see the ‘contact us’ page for details of our school tours.
