The future is in your hands…

We already know you're brilliant. Seriously.

You don’t need to prove anything to anyone. Tests, exams and standards are designed to make life easier for teachers, lecturers and employers, not for you. We recommend you be yourself, create, innovate and question. Steer your own ship and stay true to your personal dreams and you will be of much more value to the world.

If you think your principal or teacher would benefit from hearing what we’ve got to say, ask them to get in touch and we’d be happy to share our research, philosophy, curriculum modules and experience.

  • Changing lives

    My children love going to school and I have noticed a huge leap in their ability to create and solve problems.  I drop them at school knowing that they will be cared for and nurtured in a loving environment.

  • Changing lives

    There are two things I don't like about Fridays at Seven Oaks. One is that we don't have Learning Cycle, and the other is that it means I have to wait two days before I can go back again.

  • Changing lives

    The whole family has benefited from our son's move from mainstream schooling to the wonderful nurturing, educational environment that Seven Oaks provides.

  • Changing lives

    When I used to pick up my daughter from school, she would have a blank look on her face and would sometimes just ‘blow up’. Now she makes eye contact with me and talks enthusiastically about school. She is physically tired, but not emotionally drained.
