We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group. Oaklands is at an exciting point in its development. We recently relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In time, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to Woodlands Road once refurbishment is completed.

Due to our rapid and continued expansion we are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and organised catering assistant to work in our busy kitchen.
