Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

National Student Awards

Please note that we are in negotiations on the date of this event following the COVID-19 outbreak. Our priority is keeping our children, staff and guests safe. We will be able to update this page when we have confirmed a new date for 2021. 

We are delighted to say that the Oasis National Student Awards are back this year for a summer 2020 event! In July we will be meeting as family to celebrate our young people, recognising their spectacular character, achievements and personal stories. 

Our academies have each nominated 5 exceptional young people (aged 10-18) who they believe deserves to win one of 3 awards, the Character Award, Competence Award or Community Award. They'll be invited to attend this special event at the prestigious Birmingham ICC along with teachers and peers, where they'll all be recognised for being the wonderful people they are. 

With a special celebrity host, professional entertainment acts and regional performances from our academies, attendees this year will be in for a real treat! 

Thanks to our main sponsors, Sodexo, we are able to hold this event, book incredible entertainment and give each guest attending a delicious 3-course-meal they won't forget! 

The awards

The Character Award - This award is for an inspiring individual; someone who lives out the Oasis ethos in their own lives, their academy and/or their wider community and tangibly demonstrates aspects of the Oasis 9 Habits. Whether overcoming health difficulties, challenging family circumstances or learning English as a second language, all nominees have displayed formidable determination and courage. This award will mark the achievements and attitudes of an individual who is a real role model and ambassador for Oasis. 

The Competence Award - This is an individual category for someone who has made an outstanding achievement in their learning, the sports or the arts. These young people have worked exceptionally hard to exceed expected targets – some achieving two or three Level’s higher than anticipated - and are excellent examples for others in the dedication they show to achieve their best.

The Community Award - This award acknowledges a contribution over and above expectations for the benefit of the local or global community. All nominees have taken on board the Oasis Hub or Oasis Global vision and will have been involved in a diverse range of community activities that promote community cohesion, whether that’s raising money for those in need, raising awareness or simply supporting those who need help.
