About Oasis Academy Oldham
Oasis Academy Oldham is a dynamic school, focused on delivering outstanding outcomes for our community.
Our students get experiences that are the envy of many other schools and our results, while there is still a long way to go, are on a positive trajectory. Our wider community is diverse and our students are respectful and confident learners who deserve the very best. Our £30 million state-of-the art facilities are a reflection of this.
We also offer an extensive extra-curricular programme where our students can try their hands at everything from floristry to archery. Our school drama performances stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the very best. Students excel on the sports field and I am continually impressed by the active role that our young people take in shaping and enhancing our wider community.
Oasis Academy Oldham is a cheerful, friendly place in which everyone can feel at home and give their best. We insist on the highest standards of good behaviour, mutual respect and concern and we expect all students to take responsibility for themselves and for others.
Since my appointment I have been committed to recruiting, nurturing and recognising talented educationalists to help us build on the progress that is being made. We have a culture that actively wants to embrace new ideas and best practice that will support and engage our students. We want to challenge the norm and set our expectations high.
We regularly plan opportunities to develop the well being of our staff and ensure our communications strategy means that every member of staff has a voice, feels valued and able to contribute to our vision. Free staff gym membership and regular staff wellbeing CPD sessions are part of this commitment.
By joining Oasis Academy Oldham you will also be joining the wider Oasis Community Learning network, an organisation committed to the provision of high performing schools and healthy communities in a nurturing and inclusive system. This means that the career progression opportunities for talented educationalists are enviable and the possibilities to develop your career are very clear.
That sense of community goes beyond the school gate; through our Community Hub we ensure that parents, carers and local families are also able to benefit from all that we offer. We have created a community kitchen and run a financial inclusion project.
That is why I am so proud to be the Principal of this Academy. We are making huge strides as a school – and it really is a privilege to work with young people of which are community can be proud.
Many of your leaders are enrolled in the national qualifications for leadership. With the support of the trust you have provided opportunities for leaders to visit other schools to see outstanding practice in action. As a result, your leaders at all levels are more closely focused on where further improvements are needed.- Ofsted June 2019
