Oxhey Wood is a very well-resourced school. The large site provides grassed areas for outdoor activities, two large playgrounds, and an enclosed play area for nursery and reception children.
The site lies in the middle of a housing development, but to the east lies the wildlife haven of Pond Wood. The school buildings are surrounded by grass and trees, and many woodland birds visit from the nearby tree cover. Seagulls are also regular visitors to the playgrounds!
The building is elongated and is much larger than it appears from the front. Inside the building, classes are grouped into age-related areas.
There are two large halls for assemblies and PE activities, and a number of specialist classrooms for design and technology, art, cookery, ICT and special needs. We also have a nursery on site. There is a community room and other space has been set aside for a pre-school and an opportunity class.
Next to the junior hall is a library area, which children can use to change their books.
As well as a large ICT suite, each class has an interactive whiteboard and a projector and at least two computers, together with the teacher’s laptop. There is one computer for every three children at the school.
The school has excellent teaching resources and plenty of books and equipment for teaching and learning.
