Oak Tree High School is snugly situated at the end of Petre Street. This is where girls of 11 to 16 are taught the usual Maths, English, Science and Arabic curriculum in an Islamic setting.

Four years have flown by with numbers growing from the original 34 girls to over 100 this year. We are celebrating our first year taking GCSE exams and our girls have excelled beyond our expectations, with 73% gaining 5+ subjects at A-C level.

Our girls achieved a 93% pass rate at grades A*-C for science, 82% for English language and 91% for English literature; 75% in Arabic and 68% in maths. These are wonderful results for our GCSE cohort. Special mention is due to our brightest star pupils, Samrah Afzal who achieved 2 A*s, 4 As, and 2 Bs. Ayesha Khan who achieved 1 A*s, 6 As, and 3 Bs Mahirah Khan who achieved 4 As and 3 Bs Naima Awil who achieved 2 As and 6 Bs. These four lead a fiery comet of stars into the future, followed by a twinkling string of stars.

Our year 11 stars have moved onto the next stage in their education: with 17 at Longley College, 5 in King Edwards High School Sixth Form, and a scattering elsewhere too. We staff wish them joy. Behind their success are many hours of dedicated teaching and support which has borne fruit. What the Oak Tree girls have learnt with us is immeasurable. They are confident, articulate, independent learners: ready to bravely face the future wherever it leads them.
