Harbourside Learning Partnership

Harbourside Learning Partnership


Thank you for taking an interest in Oakdale Junior School which is a highly valued member of the Multi Academy Trust, Harbourside Learning Partnership.

Based in Poole, Harbourside Learning Partnership is a group of six schools who have chosen to work together in a spirit of collaboration and interdependence, secure in the knowledge that it will lead to better outcomes for children. It is a mix of primary, infant, junior and church schools. By working together, Harbourside Learning Partnership is ideally placed to face the challenges of the future and ensure all our children achieve the very best they can.

Our Partnership is committed to excellence in all facets of education. It is concerned with the flourishing of each pupil as a whole person; unique and of ultimate significance. Our Partnership aspires for the highest academic attainment and nurtures children's spiritual, moral, social, physical and cultural development.


Harbourside Learning Partnership celebrates each school's unique and individual characteristics, each retaining its individual identity, uniform, ethos and, where relevant, Christian distinctiveness. Headteachers enjoy a high level of independence in the leadership of their schools but at the same time benefit from the additional support and challenge which comes from being part of HLP. School improvement is at the heart of the Partnership. Central to our MAT is the School Improvement Board – the CEO and six Headteachers working together - whose core purpose is to focus on teaching, learning and school improvement so that pupil outcomes and opportunities may be continually improved.


Oakdale Junior School has a commitment to support the other schools within the group and to develop and share good practice in order to establish a hub of educational excellence.
