Oakwood School – Chichester, UK

Oakwood is actually three schools in one: a pre-school, nursery school and prep school. It was founded as a prep school for boys in 1912 and when the Second World War ended, had only 6 boys! The Pre-Prep opened in 1975 and girls were admitted for the first time.

Today the school occupies a wonderful Georgian building dating from 1811, in glorious grounds, in the village of East Ashling, just 2 miles from Chichester. There are currently about 240 pupils who go on to the best public schools, both locally and much further afield.

East Ashling is a small pretty village with a population of about 300, just to the west of Chichester, but separated from Chichester itself by a ‘rural gap’.

When the children’s animals arrive at the zoo, you will be able to see them by clicking on their class name which will appear below and then on the thumbnail of their animal to see it properly.  Coming soon…!

The School’s website is here.
