About the Academy

Oasis Academy Hadley is a great place to work and learn.  We are an all-through family school, where children at every key stage from ages 2 to 19 learn well and make good progress.

We pride ourselves on being inclusive and championing the gifts and talents of every individual.  The happiness, care and wellbeing of all our children is central to our approach and enables everyone at Hadley to thrive in a safe and secure environment.

We have an established culture of high expectations, where children are taught well and encouraged to develop both academically and culturally.  Having such a well-rounded learning experience is central to our purpose as it is this that enables our children to be aspirational for themselves, their families and their community.  By nurturing a positive mindset we build children’s confidence to be successful whichever path they choose.

Being an all-through school means that many children are with us for the majority of their formal education and do stay on into our very popular Sixth Form where each year, approximately 95% go onto University with 85% going to Russell Group and top third Universities which are some of the best in the world.

Hadley has a track record of great achievements and is an inspirational place to learn and work.   Throughout all phases of our Academy we have a team of skilled and dedicated staff with a great deal of expertise who are committed to securing the best outcomes.  To achieve this, we place a great deal of importance in continuing professional development and we have an established leadership development programme.

Oasis Academy Hadley is one of 53 Academies who form part of the Oasis Community Learning.  Each Oasis Academy and the services behind them, are committed to creating exceptional entitlement that ensures that all children have real choice in their lives.
