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 community. To achieve our vision we aim to develop a sense of character, competence and community within each individual.
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 49 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. 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 pleased to say that our sustained improvement rate has risen to 81%. With 81% of secondaries and all-throughs inspected rated ‘Good’ or better, we are above national average. 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.

Opportunities beyond your role
The Oasis family is a global one. We work in 37 communities in the UK, as well as a range of communities in 10 other countries around the world. There are opportunities to volunteer in community projects such as debt advice, youth projects, libraries, cafes, churches, farms and enterprise projects as well as to travel and see the work of Oasis in other countries.
Having animals in the classroom is not by any means a new concept. When asking our national staff whether they had pets in their classrooms, many of us remember Guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters and rats with fondness. In fact, some of our academies have school pets today - including a dog! We wanted to explore the benefits of introducing an animal into the education setting.
Some young people will have careers aspirations from a young age, whilst others will flutter though the school years wanting a change in career every week or not really thinking about it at all. To help ease the overwhelming uncertainty that comes with making decisions and taking steps towards a chosen career, we are sharing with you some of our thoughts on what a good careers guidance programme looks like in schools today.
