About Us  »  Vision and Aims

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to OakhilI Primary Academy. I hope you will be able to use this site to find out all you need to know about us.

On 1st September 2016 Oakhill became part of Wellspring Academy Trust.  Wellspring is a Multi Academy Trust with Academies in Leeds, Barnsley, Huddersfield, Lincolnshire & Grimsby.  It is a local Trust founded by Barnsley College as sponsor in 2012.  The governors of Oakhill have welcomed the opportunity to become part of a bigger family of schools.  As part of Wellspring we have the purpose to achieve together and we have the toolkit to help us be successful.

Oakhill Primary, along with Oakwell Rise Primary Academy and The Forset Academy, make up the Barnsley Primary Partnership which strive to help children reach their potential.

Child Focused

Children are at the heart of all that we do, and their development needs and future success determine our practice and priorities.


We provide warm, caring environments in which children and adults feel safe, loved and valued, and are able to flourish and grow.


We prepare all our children for the future, developing both their academic and life skills, and their social and emotional well-being.


Our schools have consistently positive culture of high expectations and aspirations, of and for all children and adults.
