Year 7


Welcome to secondary School. For you and your child, this will be a very different education experience from primary School. The following information and advice will be useful in this transition to LeAF as it is our intention to make this year a positive experience in every way.

Organisation and Staffing

In Year 7, students are organised into tutor groups in order to look after their needs in terms of personal and social development, as well as academic progress. Your child’s Personal Tutor will be your first point of contact should you have any concerns about how your child is settling at Oak Academy.

The Personal Tutors for Year 7 are:

  • Mr B King
