Welcome to Oak Lodge
Oak Lodge School is a special academy, formerly maintained by the London Borough of Barnet, but now managed by Barnet Special Education Trust, whose registered office is at the school address.
From September 2017, we can offer places for up to 185 students aged 11-19 with a range of learning difficulties. We also operate the 18-place Post-19 "Oak Bridge" provision in partnership with Barnet & Southgate College. The quality of our Autism practice has twice been recognised with the accreditation mark of the National Autistic Society and we have also been judged ‘Outstanding’ in successive OFSTED inspections. A copy of the latest inspection report is available from this website.
The school site is highly accessible and able to include young people with physical disabilities in all its learning. We work hard to ensure that all members of the school feel safe and acquire high levels of self-esteem. Students can expect to follow a curriculum relevant to their needs, with increased opportunities for the development of social skills. Staff are totally committed to providing the best possible education for all; assessing each individual’s level of development and enabling them to make progress at their own pace to fulfil their unique potential.
