Mrs Preston, our Academy HR Officer, welcomes you...
Hi, I'm Sam Preston and, in my role as Academy HR Officer, I am often the first person you will communicate with if you are interested in coming to work as part of the wonderful Team Oxley.
As a large stand-alone academy, we pride ourselves as a truly inclusive employer. We hold wellbeing as a priority, knowing our staff must be looked after, feel safe and secure, enjoy coming to work and have no barriers to carry out their job role. We know, when this is the case, our children get the best - the best experiences, the best expertise , and the best care any parent could ever want for their little one. This is why we care as an employer!
Whatever your role, it is as valued as the next. We are a true team. Our academy won't run at its best unless every person plays their part. Looking out for each other, having each other's back and helping when things may be tough are what we do and is embedded in our culture of being part of Team Oxley.
Do take time to discover our website, take a virtual tour, check out our socials and book to come and visit us. You will know if we are right for you - if it feels right, we encourage you to apply to our vacant posts. You will be making a great decision!
Please do check out our HR Pages above.

Pupils simply love their school! Ofsted 2022
My children enjoy attending each day. They find the work challenging and interesting. They really like the teaching staff and feel supported and have grown in confidence.
Working at Oxley is so special and unique. Everyone is so kind, well-being is at the forefront and our community are a delight. I love my job! (Teacher)
The school missions and values make my son want to be a part of the Academy and try his best. I feel proud that my sons are at Oxley Park and the Nursery and I feel that the changes being made are really positive!
The children are oozing with so much more ‘zest’ since the start of this year, which makes us as parents happier and excited about their future at OPA.
My children love the school! My eldest was quiet, didn’t want to learn, didn’t enjoy school. Now he is settled, has friends and has started to show improvements. My daughter loves her teachers and is extremely enthusiastic.
