Principal's Message for Students

Dear Student

Melksham Oak is committed to becoming a great school. Central to our school’s journey are our core values where we expect every member of the school community to: Be Kind, Work Hard and Respect Each Other. All of the staff at Melksham Oak are committed to supporting and challenging you on this journey so that you can achieve your very best.

We recognise that academic achievement is fundamental to your development and will work tirelessly with you to achieve the very best qualifications. You, as students, have a crucial role to play in your education. To make the most of your time at Melksham Oak, you need to approach every challenge with a growth mind-set and take responsibility for your learning. However, we believe that the school needs to provide educational experiences both in and outside of the classroom and pride ourselves on the many opportunities that we deliver through a wide range of extra curricular activities. We invite you to get involved and make the most of them to become truly a rounded student.

Our aim is that at the end of your seven years at Melksham Oak you will be fully equipped for adult life. We want you to leave ready to move on to the next step of your journey armed with: academic success, rich experiences outside the classroom and fond memories of the relationships you have made.

There is a big and changing world out there ready and waiting for you; so do everything you can in school to grasp the opportunities that wait.

Good luck on your journey and let us know how we can support you to be the very best version of yourself.
