Oakwood was opened in 1989 following the merger of Court Lodge Comprehensive and Horley Comprehensive (Secondary Modern) School. Andy Thompson was headteacher from 1989 until he retired in 2007, when Sue Child took up the reins.
At the last Ofsted inspection in November 2013, the school was judged to be Grade 2 - Good. This followed its previous inspection in 2012 where it was rated Grade 3 - Satisfactory and was removed from special measures.
Oakwood was originally the preferred site for the new Horley leisure centre, but unforeseen costs made the site uneconomical. The new leisure centre is currently under construction on the site of the former Court Lodge Comprehensive.
Oakwood is a founder member of the Horley Learning Partnership, an extended confederation which incorporates the Horley SureStart Children’s Centre.
