Information about the school

Oakfield is a friendly, vibrant and exciting place for children to learn. We offer a wide range of activities and cater for the needs of all children. Oakfield Primary Academy is located in Dartford, Kent, and is a fairly new school which opened in September 2008. Oakfield was amalgamated from an Infant and Nursery school and a Junior school. We are now in our brand new, purpose built building with innovative design and state-of-the-art facilities. Judged by Ofsted in December 2018 as a GOOD school, we are working hard to provide the best possible experiences for all children.

We are a large school with three forms of entry, and with a nursery on site too, we have capacity for 758 children. A new build has very recently been completed in order to give us a brand new hall and an extra five classrooms.

We are part of The Galaxy Trust which is the successful partnership between Oakfield Primary Academy, Temple Hill Primary Academy and West Hill Primary Academy. All three schools are supportive, friendly schools where children, parents and staff thrive.
