Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome

I am exceptionally proud to welcome you to Oasis Academy Oldham.

Our mission is simple: achieving excellence for all. At Oasis Academy Oldham, not only will we build on our strong GCSE results to help your child get the best possible qualifications, but we also support them to develop their passions, talents and interests.

We offer, an extensive extra-curricular programme where our students can try 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 behavior and foster a climate of mutual respect; our students take responsibility for themselves and for others.  Our excellent pastoral care (including specialist services) ensures our students are safe and well-supported.

It is our firm belief that if our students feels safe, healthy and happy at school then they will take full advantage of the excellent teaching and learning on offer. To support this every student is assigned a House, each of which has a group of highly skilled tutors led by a Head of House. This “school within a school” ensures that no child goes unnoticed, each and every student is closely monitored and cared for.  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.  Through a dedicated team we offer a range of outreach work, including a community farm and a memorial garden to help our staff and students remember people our wider community has lost. We have also created a community kitchen and run a financial inclusion project. 

That is why I am so proud to be the Principal of this Academy. All the staff take great satisfaction in raising the achievement and aspiration of our students – it is our privilege to work with such wonderful young people.

I look forward to meeting you!
