Our goal is to provide excellent opportunities in an honest, respectful, positive and purposeful climate for all to achieve excellence, become lifelong learners and responsible, successful, well rounded citizens.
These are not just words, they are the standards that we set ourselves.
Our curriculum has been designed to enable our pupils to develop a broad range of knowledge and skills to enable them to be successful, during their time at OAO, and in their longer term aspirations. The decision to change the timetable from a two-week cycle to a one-week cycle has been taken following carefully consideration and consultation in order to ensure all students get the opportunity to study a broad, balanced and compelling curriculum. As a result of the new timetable structure more time has been afforded to English, Maths, Science in Year 11 and option subjects at Key Stage 4. PSHCE and Literacy are taught as discreet subjects at Key Stage 3.
Extended Cultural Offer:
The Extended Cultural Offer has been designed and put in place alongside more academic subjects, such as English and Maths to provide students with a variety of skills and experiences that will support them in later years.
The Extended Cultural Offer gives our students opportunities to take part in a range of activities led by both Oasis staff and professionals from outside the Academy.
External providers include; St John’s Ambulance, the ‘outstanding’ graded Oldham Music Service, Debate Mate and Manchester Universities confucius centre.
The activities that have been put into place come under the five headings; Global Citizen; Community Volunteer; Sports Participator; Creative Master and Careers Prep. As a family at Oasis, we believe that these areas will support the students to develop into a well-rounded people, and keep them on a level playing field with young people from more affluent areas.
