Message from the Executive Headteacher

Welcome to the Oaks C.E Learning Federation

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to The Oaks CE Learning Federation.  We are a family of three small Church Infant Schools based in the villages of Copythorne, Lyndhurst and Netley Marsh, who all work closely together under the leadership of our Federation Headteacher and Governing Body.  In partnership with our parents, we aim to ensure children grow up to lead safe, happy, healthy and successful lives by providing the highest standard of education within a Christian environment, giving the opportunity for each child to attain their own, full potential.

With Federation status we are in the exceptional position of each of our three schools being able to share expertise and resources and are therefore able to achieve more together than any one school can individually. However, as you will see for yourself, it is important to us to retain each of our three schools’ unique and individual characters within their own community.

Our three schools are managed on a day-to-day basis by their own Head of Learning, ensuring all children make excellent progress in a happy and safe environment.

During their time with us we will develop the skills, knowledge and personal qualities that will enable our children to be confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens throughout their lives.

We hope you find this website answers your questions but if you would like further information, or to visit us, please do contact us.

Mr Mathew Bowen
Executive Headteacher
