About Oasis Academy Hadley
Oasis Academy Hadley is an inclusive all-through, 2 to 18 academy that is committed to giving children the best possible education that will enable them to achieve their best. We are located in a spacious new building with great facilities on South Street, Ponders End, a two minute walk from Ponders End train station.
Since opening, we have celebrated many successes. Our last Ofsted inspection in June 2016, confirmed that our Academy continues to be good in all areas.
‘The Hadley Way is ensuring that pupils’ lives are transformed’
‘In all phases rates of progress for pupils are at least good’
‘The ambition and culture of high expectations’’
‘Good quality care pervades all aspects of the school’s life and work’
The popularity of our Academy has increased year on year and we are now the school of choice for our local families and we are over-subscribed in many year groups. Our Sixth Form is the first choice for Year 11 students and is popular with external students from local schools.
The percentage of students achieving the best grades at both GCSE and A Level has risen significantly over the years. Last summer our Progress 8 score was +0.32 placing us in the top 15% of schools in the country. At GCSE 76% of students achieved Level 4+ in English and 64% in Maths. We have been successful in narrowing the gap with disadvantaged students achieving in line with advantaged students. Consequently, students make good and outstanding progress. At A level and BTEC Level 3 the success continues where over 94% of our students have progressed to university including 60% Russell Group and top third universities following a wide range of courses including engineering, politics, psychology and law.
Phase 1, our primary section, began in September 2010, admitting 60 Reception age children. In phase 1 our students receive the best possible start to their education in our nursery and reception where the ‘Good Level of Development’ measure is above national averages and progress is outstanding. Similarly, our Year 1 Phonics test results and KS1 and 2 SATS results this summer demonstrated very strong progress. We offer full time day-care for 2 and 3 year olds including the Government 30 hours free day care. Our admissions arrangements also give staff have priority for places in our nurseries and school.
We value our staff and place a great deal of importance in training and development. We run a comprehensive programme of professional development opportunities throughout the academic year focused on developing our skills knowledge and expertise.
The all-through Academy brings huge benefits to students, their families and to staff in terms of curriculum continuity and progression, parental involvement in their children's learning and professional development opportunities. We are part of the Oasis family of Academies and we interpret the Oasis ethos through the Hadley Way which drives our work within the Academy.

We will do the best we can
We will consider others and make positive contributions to the Academy, local and global communities in which we live
