About Oasis Skinner Street Academy

Oasis Academy Skinner Street became part of the Oasis family of Academies in September 2013. Situated in Gillingham, Kent, we are an inclusive-of-all Primary Academy for young minds aged 4-11. With our mission statement - ‘we transform’ - championed throughout the hearts of our staff, it is our aim to deliver exceptional education in our community, offering pupils the chance to feel ready and excited about their move to secondary education.   

We teach an exciting and creative curriculum, placing a particular emphasis on developing our pupils as active learners in every sense; we want our young minds to receive a holistic education and grow as intelligent and sociable people. We recognise that an outstanding curriculum, underpinned by inspirational and impassioned teaching, leads to outstanding learning. Therefore themes within our classrooms are chosen with care, ensuring they are relevant, stimulating and variable for levels of ability. Throughout their time with us, all of our pupils will continuously learn skills in English, Mathematics, Science, History, Art, Design & Technology, Computing, Music, Geography, RE and PE. 

We want our pupils to discover their passions and thrive in the next stages of their education. In the 2016-17 KS2 SATs we were delighted to say that 74% of our pupils reached the expected standard in RWM.   Our after school clubs run Monday to Friday, with a view to encouraging our pupils to realise their potential and unlock hidden talents through choosing to learn. Some of our clubs include: Gardening, Colour Art Therapy, Science, Horrible Histories, Dance, Choir and Film.
