Oaklands Community School was a mixed comprehensive school in west Southampton, Hampshire, in the south of England. The school was a specialist Arts College for 11 to 16 year olds.

The most recent Ofsted inspection was 27 September 2004, when the school was praised, the introduction to the report reading "Oaklands Community School is a very good school. Its exceptional egalitarian ethos ensures that all students are treated with care, respect and encouragement. Very strong leadership, a commitment to equality of opportunity, improvement and raised standards combined with a good quality of education for all students result in a school which provides good value for money."[1]

According to the Department of Education performance tables, the school obtained the fourth highest CVA score in the city. This is a new, complex Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 contextual value added (CVA) score designed to show the progress children have made. This is done by comparing their achievements with those of other pupils nationally who had the same or similar prior attainment in their test results at age 10 or 11 in 2001.[2]

The school closed in 2008 August. The premises became the upper school site for Oasis Academy Lord's Hill which has since moved to a new dedicated building. At the same time Millbrook Community School became the lower school site. During late 2013 and early 2014, Oaklands Community School was demolished to make way for housing, however the pool has remained and is planned to reopen in 2014/15.[3][4]
