Oak National Academy has arguably been the U.K’s most well-attended school this year, but you won’t see its logo emblazoned on any uniforms.
Oak was launched as an online resource hub in April 2020 to help instructors, parents, and students transition to remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic. Oak’s founding team had built careers in education as principals and teachers and when schools closed, they aspired “to make sure no student missed a lesson during COVID-19.”
“We’ve had a significant amount of press. We were announced on the podium at 10 Downing Street, and this made us a bigger target,” said Technology Director John Roberts. “We needed to make sure we had a best-in-class product to secure our site as we were building it so fast. Cloudflare has definitely achieved that and exceeded our expectations.”
