Our secondary academy in Waterloo is celebrating after they proudly announced they received an 'Outstanding' rating in their most recent Ofsted inspection! The Ofsted report praised Oasis Academy South Bank for their commitment to excellence in teaching, learning and student personal development.

The two-day inspection which took place on the 22nd and 23rd of May, impressed inspectors who noted the academy’s relentless focus on excellent education for all, the high levels of student engagement, and the supportive environment created by staff.

Key highlights from the report include:

·         “Pupils flourish here. They are very proud to be part of this strong and caring school community.”

·         “Pupils have for themselves the same high expectations that the school has for them and appreciate the school’s support.”

·         “Pupils are provided with a wide range of opportunities to enrich their learning experiences beyond the classroom. There are 45 educational outings arranged each year.”

·         “Leaders set high academic standards and typically pupils achieve extremely well. This includes those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), and those who are disadvantaged.”

·         “Staff, including those new to teaching, receive ongoing high-quality training. They value the academy’s three pillars of professional development and work as a close-knit reflective team.”

·         “Students benefit from the Community Hub, which provides valuable support for students as well as giving opportunities for students to give back to the local community.”

The overwhelmingly positive report also praised the academy’s sixth-form curriculum, which inspectors found caters to a wide range of interests and potential career pathways for students. The report underlines that the academy has worked to develop and improve its curriculum thinking in the sixth form, positively impacting students' achievements.

Principal, Ms Anna Richardson, expressed immense pride in the academy’s accomplishment: “We are delighted with this Outstanding rating from Ofsted and feel incredibly privileged that the report reflects the hard work and dedication of our staff and students. Our academy community strives for excellence every day, and this report recognises our collective efforts.”

The outstanding Ofsted result has been well-received on social media, with notable individuals such as Florence Eshalomi, Labour Co-op MP for Vauxhall, and North Lambeth Councillor, Cllr Issa Issa, congratulating the academy on their fantastic achievement. Their public endorsements highlight the positive impact Oasis Academy South Bank has within the wider community.

The academy community looks forward to maintaining high standards and fostering an environment where every student can continue to thrive, join us in celebrating this spectacular academy!
