At Oakfield we aim to provide a smooth middle school transition, into year 5 and on-wards from year 8.

New year 5 pupils: pupils joining us in year 5 are eased into life at the Academy, with regular visits made by year 5 staff to First Schools as well as opportunities to work alongside our current pupils here at Oakfield; before joining us in year 5.
