About Oak National Academy

Created by teachers, for teachers

Welcome to Oak National Academy, the online classroom made by teachers, for teachers.

Our 10,000 lessons and resources cover a wide range of subjects, from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 11. And we’ve specialist lessons covering a wide range of learning areas and therapies.

In our classroom lessons are around an hour-long. They’re delivered by a teacher, with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access our lessons on nearly any device, and pupils only need materials they can find at home.

As well as our lessons for pupils, the Oak Teacher Hub allows schools to choose how best to use our resources. Teachers can:

  • Download, edit and adapt lesson slides and worksheets wherever copyright allows
  • Follow a weekly schedule, or select and share lessons in any order 
  • Share units, lessons or individual resources with fellow teachers or pupils
  • Support a range of pupils, with captions on all lessons, BSL for the youngest, and printable resources for those without devices.

Oak National Academy was created in April 2020 as a rapid response to the coronavirus outbreak. More than 40 teachers and colleagues from leading education organisations came together to support schools’ efforts to keep children learning.

In our first term, we delivered 20 million lessons. 86% of teachers recommended Oak to a colleague, thanks to its help in reducing workload and improving teaching and learning. You can read all about it in our end of term report.

With the support of hundreds of teachers, sector bodies, unions and subject associations, we’ll be continually listening to your feedback to improve and extend our range of free resources.

Oak National Academy is part of the Reach Foundation, registered charity 1129683.

Oak’s team is supported by our fantastic teachers, curriculum partners and advisory board.
