Our vision is to deliver Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community. We understand the complex responsibilities that education has, and the impact on an academy’s entire and extended community. To achieve our vision we aim to develop the character and competence of every individual and their commitment to their community.
Our ethos is centred around a model of inclusion, equality, healthy relationships, hope and perseverance. It is a statement of who we are and therefore the lens through which we assess all that we do. Our ethos permeates every aspect of our work and each Academy community.
We are one Multi-Academy Trust, one family of 52 academies spread across four distinct regions of the country– continually supporting every individual, and sharing best practice to drive continual improvement across the trust.
We are committed to raising the standard of education for every single young person we serve whilst closing the gap for disadvantaged students. Approximately 50% of the students we serve come from disadvantaged backgrounds, but we believe there should be no barriers to exceptional education.
We passionately embrace learning and are committed to every child and young person within our care. We are determined they reach their full potential, and get the best start developing holistically across every area of their lives. Our Academies are part of local neighbourhoods and we hold an expansive vision of the role that education should play in strong, vibrant and proud communities.
Be part of our journey to exceptional
In 2014 30% of our inspected academies were judged to be ‘Good’ or better by Ofsted. We are now delighted to share that our sustained improvement rate has risen to 83% of our schools. Moreover, 90% of our Primary academies are ‘Good’ or better. We need people with an unwavering belief in our vision to join us on our journey to exceptional.
Continual professional development
Working so strongly within small regions means additional professional development. Staff benefit from annual regional conferences and precise school to school support throughout the year to share best practice. This not only ensures our staff are the very best of the best, but also so our children receive the very best entitlement, regardless of which Oasis classroom they are in.
