Are you ready for your next challenge?

Oasis Academy Hobmoor is an over-subscribed 2-form entry primary Academy located in the Yardley area of Birmingham. Home to 498 pupils, facilities are perfectly suited to our young learners, and have even been labelled a Best Practice Academy for this reason within the Oasis family of 49 schools.

Achieving Excellence

Teaching in the Academy is typically good to outstanding and our progress scores at KS2 are in the top 20% nationally. We are committed to recruiting passionate, dedicated staff to help our children achieve their academic and wider potential. You will be able to engender enthusiasm and drive throughout our staff, nurturing a culture of ambition and continuous improvement. Our focus on achieving excellent standards for the whole child is paramount and this is done in a welcoming and caring atmosphere.

Our Ideal Candidate

We are looking for an inspirational leader and role-model who will inspire, train, support and motivate our staff to make our Academy Outstanding in all areas. The successful candidate will be a dedicated and proven effective leader, who will continue to raise standards and further enhance the curriculum, enriching the lives of our young learners. You will have an uncompromising approach to school improvement and raising attainment, and you will value the importance of making learning engaging in order to ensure that every child can reach their potential.

Develop Your Local Hub

Alongside developing our Academy as an enriching school environment, you will be a forward-facing figure within the local community. Accessed by more than 1000 local residents each week, the local Oasis Hub already offers a range of services to benefit the community including ESOL courses and a Foundation degree programme, a food bank and a Job Club for local residents. As Principal you will have the opportunity to further develop this important work, building relationships with local leaders and positively influencing the lives of the extended community.

Effective Partnerships

To develop you as a leader, you will enjoy the support and challenge of a Regional Director along with the wider OCL National Team. By being part of a family of 49 Oasis Academies, you will work alongside expert leaders in their field and benefit from a strong support network and partnership with 7 other Oasis Community Learning primaries across the Midlands. You will have many opportunities to share best practice and drive continual improvement, including an annual Regional conference, Regional Improvement Networks and access to a growing CPD programme nationally.
