The school consists of 7 different blocks, mainly separated into different subject groups. There have been an extensive site improvement programme seeing the replacement of prefabricated buildings with purpose designed brick-built buildings. The three new blocks consist of a new music block, Humanities block (Formerly C block, now John Paul II block) and Sixth Form Block. Each of these blocks has been built in a similar style, often incorporating a cross in different coloured bricks. 2012 has seen a major refurbishment of the Maths/Science block with Maths moving to A Block and the labs being update in 3 phases (Phase 3 to complete in Summer 2012).

The grounds incorporate many mature oak trees, giving the site its name.

The school uniform was redesigned for the September 2009 academic year, now fully implemented. The school uniform colours are navy blue and royal blue. All students must wear the Eco-Blazer with the school crest ; boys wear a plain white shirt and striped school tie and navy trousers; girls may wear either navy blue trousers or a stitched down pleated skirt with a short sleeved navy and white striped v-neck blouse. 

The expense of the uniform caused controversy in 2009,[5] due to the expense of the uniform excluding the PE kit. A press release was submitted on the school website[6] claiming many of the facts written by the newspaper articles are incorrect, and that the uniform was very hard wearing due to its materials however, many of the products are available for less in different stores. As a response to the controversy, the school started a 'nearly new uniform' shop where the uniform could be brought cheaper.
