Why Oakmere Community College?
At Oakmere every member of staff is here to encourage, support and guide each learner and to help them achieve their goals. Small class sizes enable every learner to be given the personal teaching time they deserve and the friendly atmosphere gives each learner the chance to learn and grow through learning new skills and gaining further qualifications. We offer a range of vocational college courses to suit a wide range of needs.
Oakmere is a registered charity that provides the community it serves with the means by which young people can achieve their full potential enabling them to become responsible and economically active members of society. It achieves this through the provision of personal support, specific and transferable employment skills and life enhancing opportunities.
