Oakfield Academy serves the community by providing a variety of school venue hire options. Please contact us if you are interested in finding out more or would like to book our facilities for your group or project. We also work collaboratively with professional bodies and businesses as we aim to give all our pupils the opportunity to work alongside members of their community as they learn new skills. Our local partnership work is another effective way to teach our pupils the importance of being responsible members of the community.
