Oaklands Park School
John Nash Drive, EX7 9SF Dawlish
01626 862363

Please have a look around our website – it is easy to use, full of information about the school and even entertaining!

Oaklands Park is a very special school:  we offer education and care to children and young people who have a range of special needs.  Our pupils and students come from all over the county of Devon.

We  work very closely with parents to provide the  best education for our children.  Our work has been recognised officially by Ofsted and by Ofsted Social Care.  They say:

“The school is alert to the needs of all the pupils.  New ideas and systems are used to find ways to deal with their needs”

“All members of staff are interested in the welfare and progress of the pupils.  Nothing is ever too much bother for anyone”

“The majority of teaching is ……. good”

“The school is making good progress”

We have nearly 10 acres of grounds, with sports pitches, play equipment, wooded areas and hard play areas.  We have a swimming pool, ball pool and provide horse and donkey riding experiences (off-site).  We have excellent links with other schools in Dawlish and beyond.

The school can provide residential education for up to 25 pupils, either on a weekly or termly boarding basis.

A major rebuilding programme is currently underway.  By the time work is completed, we will have new school buildings with specialist teaching facilities and improved residential areas.

We are the proud possessors of the Sports Active Mark and Investors in People Award.  We hope soon, to add the Healthy School Award to our trophies!

Oaklands Park aspires to be a happy school where children can enjoy learning.  If we can be of help, we look forward to hearing from you!
