About Oasis Academy Arena
Oasis Academy Arena is a brand new secondary school offering high quality education, with a focus on Sport and Science, for children aged 11-16.
Planning permission was granted on 26th February 2015 and having opened in September 2015, we moved into a beautiful brand new state-of-the-art building in September 2016. Year 7 students in September 2015 were the first cohort of students in the school, and we will eventually grow to full capacity by September 2019, with 180 places in each year group. Part of Croydon's Olympic legacy, the school is situated on the site adjacent to Croydon Arena Athletics track, and benefits from partnerships with local sports organisations.
Being the leader of any school is an immense privilege, and the profound responsibility that comes with this is not lost on me, I can assure you, but being the Principal of Oasis Academy Arena, a school just starting out on its journey of learning and discovery with students, is something that little bit more. We are in the process of building something that we believe will be a little bit special here at Oasis Academy Arena.- Craig Griffiths, Principal, Oasis Academy Arena
