Message from our Headteacher
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of Hazel Wood High School and to belong to the Oak Learning Partnership. Hazel Wood is sponsored by Oak LP, and we work together to foster a sense of pride and community in our pupils and provide opportunities for all to excel.
We have professional and highly motivated staff and, in partnership with our young people, parents and governors, we aim to equip young people for the demands of the 21st century by offering every opportunity to excel. Our school is built on the core values of Respect, Responsibility and Aspiration. We aim to ensure that we create a stimulating and disciplined environment, and to recognise that successful education lies in supporting the welfare of the whole child: their safety, health and happiness. By helping our students to develop an understanding of our changing world we will encourage them to become positive contributors to society.
Offering opportunities to excel, we aim to provide all our students with an education that equips them with the skills to achieve their full potential at school and in life. The message to our students is clear- we want them to make the difference and ensure they fulfil their ambitions and aspirations with pride and respect.
I hope you find our website both informative and engaging and please do not hesitate to contact us with any issues, we will be happy to assist and support in anyway we can.
Mr P. GreenhalghHeadteacher
Message from Oak Learning Partnership
Oak Learning Partnership Trust is the overseeing charitable organisation of a family of schools in the Bury area of Greater Manchester. By working together each school gets significant support to be the best they can be for their learners and communities. Our Trust is committed to improving the life chances of children and young people through the delivery of an excellent, well-rounded education. At Oak we are passionate about inclusion; this is at the heart of our ethos and is a consistent focus in all our schools. We understand that high-quality teaching and support can transform lives and communities. The business and operational support provided by the central team of Oak Learning Partnership allows leaders in schools to focus their attention on ensuring teaching is consistently excellent.
Our schools work closely with one another: they collaborate, support each other and share collective systems across both educational and business provisions. But it’s also important to us that each school has individuality. The CEO and Trustees set highly-ambitious targets, not putting a ceiling on what our staff and young people can achieve. We understand that leaders need autonomy to be accountable for performance and to create schools which serve their communities’ specific needs.
As a Trust we are keen not to over-complicate our approach and we recognise that more often than not, doing the simple things extremely well, consistently, makes the biggest difference to our young people and ensures there is a clarity in what we do.
We are committed to developing partnerships which will contribute to strengthening our current schools. Oak LP and all its partners will always be underpinned by our driving priority: our strong moral purpose which enables us to provide a truly inclusive education and embed our core values of Aspiration, Resilience, and Integrity in everything we do.
