Head PhotoOakleigh House School is a co-educational primary school, taking pupils from 2 years 6 months – 11 years, offering the highest standard of teaching and educational facilities. It has a distinctive family atmosphere and a positive attitude to learning.

It was founded in 1919 and is now part of the Cognita Group of Schools.

It is situated in the Uplands area of Swansea, adjoining the beautiful Cwmdonkin Park. It houses a multipurpose hall, modern dining facilities, a computer suite and a range of specialist classrooms. There is a designated Nursery area, two large all weather play areas for all and a wooded area which has been developed into a nature reserve by staff and pupils, providing a valuable on-site resource.

Discipline is firm and expectations high, with pupils of all abilities challenged to achieve their full potential in a secure, supportive environment.

A dedicated team of staff is well qualified to deal with children across the age and ability range. Teachers plan a broad, modern curriculum, set clear goals and attach great importance to good manners and the development of self-discipline.

Physical exercise is a vital component of school life. Pupils have the opportunity to play football, rugby, netball, tennis and hockey and to swim in the Welsh National Pool. Matches and tournaments are arranged against other schools, home matches take place on our astro turf pitch.

Pupils contribute immensely to the busy life of the school through team sports, orchestra, chess and a variety of other after-school and lunchtime clubs. There is a choir of note and all pupils take part in the annual Christmas production.

In addition to class Music and Drama, optional extra lessons are offered in a range of instruments, Speech, Drama and Ballet. Examination results in these subjects are consistently outstanding.

Oakleigh House offers wrap around care from 8am with the Early Bird Club to after-school clubs, play activities and tea until 5.30pm. Holiday cover is available throughout the year.

There is a close school/home partnership. Pupils are regularly assessed and termly written reports sent to parents who are then invited to Parents Evenings to ensure an on-going dialogue with staff.

Parents can be assured that the School will provide the best education for their child and ensure the best response from their child. At Oakleigh House, each pupil has a positive identity and is a valued member of the community.
