What people say about us

“I’ve never felt more at ease as a new member of staff in a school. OLA is rich with kind staff and welcoming students which creates the family atmosphere necessary to realise the school’s ethos. As a teacher of 10+ years it is refreshing to find pastoral care so firmly at the centre of culture and practice, the benefits of which are evident the moment you step through the door.“
