Staff Testimonials

“Completing my NQT year at Oak Tree was the best decision I could have made in regards to my professional development as a teacher and in finding a school that would do everything it could to support me in what can be a very challenging year!
I was given the opportunity to observe and learn from some of the most inspiring and talented teachers I have ever met, and was part of a staff body that made me feel incredibly welcomed and valued. I also formed close friendships with the other NQT’s at the school, which became an important source of information, ideas and support and was heavily encouraged by the senior leadership team. I feel privileged that I was given the opportunity to work at a school as amazing and inspiring as Oak Tree, and I would recommend it as fantastic school to work in for any future newly qualified teachers.”  Holly Mann (Teacher)

“I feel very fortunate that Oak Tree School took me on as an NQT last year. There is an ever growing and diverse range of teacher colleagues here of which all fully support each other, ensuring expertise can be found in many areas. The school management were always willing to fully support my aspirations as an FQT, now still I feel very valued and supported as I continue my journey with the vibrant and exciting team at Oak Tree. I was lucky enough to have access to many resources and systems at Oak Tree during my NQT year. The level of mentoring made me feel like I was guided through day by day. Oak Tree sponsored me to attend a handful of courses of which were essential in part to the successful completion of my introductory year, I cannot thank them enough. I would definitely recommend Oak Tree as a quality place to train and work.”  Perran Gilbert (Teacher)

“Working at Oak Tree school has been by far the most rewarding job of my career so far. Everyday provides a new challenge and the students never fail to make you smile and laugh! The staff at Oak Tree School are inspiring and I am proud to be part of such a committed team. The support and advice you receive from Management is amazing and they always take time to listen to your problems, no matter how small they may seem! They regularly go above and beyond to make you feel as though you are a valuable member of staff. The school regularly provides relevant and valuable training which you go on to use on a regular basis. All training courses have been extremely beneficial in my development as a teaching assistant/teacher.”  Sam Stevenson (TA)

“Oak Tree is a fantastic school that takes great pride in providing an opportunity for staff development. I joined Oak Tree School a little over a year ago as a teaching assistant with the goal of becoming a teacher in the future. Oak Tree has supported me throughout this process immensely and I currently have a teaching role at the school and I’m working with the team to start a course in September which will allow me to become fully qualified whilst staying and being supported at Oak Tree School. Oak Tree has given me an amazing opportunity to develop my career.” Josh Richards (TA)
