Oakley House (Senior)

OAKLEY HOUSE is an independent remedial school catering for those children who struggle to achieve their potential in a mainstream classroom.

We provide specialised teaching for children who have Dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, Dyspraxia or other specific learning difficulties. Our priority is to restore confidence and to develop a positive attitude to learning. We achieve this by providing a happy atmosphere with support and understanding for each child’s individual needs. 

Intermediate Phase at Oakley House aims to reintroduce the child to mainstream education and to ensure that pupils are self-confident, well-adjusted, independent and mature members of the community.

An Individualised Education Programme is implemented through differentiation within the classroom as well as home programme activities. A range of high interest extra-mural activities are offered to our learners, and we also offer homework classes in the afternoons in this phase.

The Senior Phase caters for those learners who struggle to achieve their full potential in a mainstream high school. Oakley House provides a complete education by following the mainstream national curriculum, whilst enabling children to master the required thinking skills, independence, self-discipline, responsibility and confidence (in order to be at a point where they can be reintroduced back into mainstream education in Grade 10. To facilitate access to a broad and balanced curriculum, differentiation and extension of the curriculum is implemented throughout all teaching and learning.

Study skills are an important part of our curriculum and include learning techniques, memory strategies and organisation skills. We offer daily supervised homework sessions that take place after school for an hour at a time.
