Our children move on to a wide variety of post-primary schools, both selective and non-selective, including, Dominican College, Fort Hill College, Friends’ School, Lagan College, Hazelwood Integrated College, Hunterhouse College, Laurelhill Community College, Malone Integrated College, Methodist College Belfast, Rathmore Grammar School, Royal Belfast Academical Institution, Rudolph Steiner, St Colm’s High School, St Dominic’s Grammar School for Girls, St Genevieve’s High School, St Louise’s Comprehensive, Belfast, St Mary’s Christian Brothers GS, St Patrick’s Academy (Lisburn), Victoria College, Wallace High School and Wellington College Belfast.
We are delighted to hear, year after year, how well our former pupils are doing in their post-primary settings, colleges, universities and workplaces. They are confident, ambitious, passionate, caring, young people who display great empathy and understanding. They continue to be ambassadors for Oakwood and integrated education, long after and far beyond the walls of Oakwood. They encapsulate all that is special about Oakwood and they tend to migrate back here, to catch up with the staff team, to share their successes, to undertake placements and some even become members of the staff team.
The Oakwood journey may start in the nursery or the primary school, but once you join Oakwood, you embark on a journey that sees life-long friendships being forged, whilst on a path towards academic success and personal enrichment. Our children are our ambassadors and they, alongside the staff team, are all the richer for having journeyed with us.
