Oakdene has been awarded the Artsmark award to celebrate our commitment to the arts.
The Artsmark is a national award scheme that recognises schools with a high level of provision in the arts. Artsmark provides a benchmark for arts provision which encourages schools to consider the opportunities they offer in art, dance, drama and music.
