Our Approach

The holistic development and happiness of our learners is at the heart of OTO. We understand that engaged and emotionally supported students are better equipped to thrive academically, socially, and personally. Through a comprehensive approach that permeates every aspect of our school, we foster a culture of wellbeing, connection, and personal growth.


Education is much bigger than academics. Our curriculum includes a life skills program that give students the tools they need to flourish in the modern world. Learners explore topics such as social and emotional wellbeing, mental health, and practical lessons about navigating life in the 21st century. OTO equips students with the knowledge and resilience to thrive academically, emotionally, and socially.


Learners at OTO are safe and supported by strong networks built on trust and mutual respect. Each learner is assigned a personal mentor upon join OTO, who normally stays with them for the duration of their OTO journey, if possible. This mentor plays a pivotal role in their OTO experience, providing regular check-ins, guidance, and general oversight. Students also have a wealth of groups, clubs and societies where students can connect with like-minded peers who share their passions and interests. These tight-knit communities foster mutual respect, trust, and camaraderie. They provide spaces for students to express themselves, engage in meaningful conversations, and form lifelong friendships.

Personalised Support

We recognize that some students may require additional support to navigate personal challenges. That's why we have a team of clinical professionals available to deliver targeted therapeutic interventions when needed. These experts collaborate closely with our students, families, and educators to provide personalised support and guidance. Our goal is to empower students to overcome obstacles, develop coping strategies, and maintain their overall wellbeing.

Whole School Ethos

At OTO, we are committed to creating a nurturing and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and supported. Our whole school values of empathy, respect, and responsibility form the foundation of our community. We foster a culture of kindness, where students learn the importance of treating others with compassion, understanding, and empathy. Through these shared values, we promote positive relationships, conflict resolution, and a sense of collective responsibility.
