A very warm welcome to Oasis Academy Brislington and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We are an inclusive 11-16 community secondary school whose aim is to ensure 'Excellence as Standard' in everything we do. We want our students to become the very best version of themselves; my vision is to equip them with 'the confidence, knowledge and skills to stand as "first among equals".
We offer the highest standards of teaching and learning, backed up by our outstanding '360 degrees of care' pastoral provision and work in partnership with parents and carers, to give every student the best possible chance of success. our message to our students is simple: Work Hard; Look Smart: Be Nice.
We are incredibly proud of our students and the wonderful people we see them blossom into throughout their time with us. We hope that this website is a reflection of that and what we can offer your children.

We are part of the South West region of academies within the Oasis family. Based in Bristol and Trowbridge we are a region of 9 academies both primary and secondary, lead by Julia Dauban and Phil Humphreys our Interim Regional Directors.
Before taking on the role of Interim Regional Director, Julia has been Principal at Oasis Academy Long Cross for five years. Moving the academy from Special Measures to Good in just two years, Julia's leadership has seen the school go from strength-to-strength. Results across the board have either matched or improved upon national average, with a cohort of approximately 60% pupil premium. This is something Julia is particularly proud of.
Prior to working at Oasis, Julia has worked in Bristol schools for 10 years. She has always had an interest in working with children with challenging behaviour, and has therefore made inclusion and behaviour a specialism within her career. For three years Julia worked in an international school in Stockholm, where the children at the time spoke 32 different languages. This was a great opportunity to ensure that appropriate provision was evident and success stories made.
Phil Humphreys is an expert educationalist with almost twenty years of experience in education, having led in an OFSTED rated ‘Outstanding’ school in Birmingham where he was the Deputy Headteacher at a time when the school won the TES leadership team of the year.
Mr Humphreys took over the large Southampton secondary Oasis Academy Mayfield in 2013, he transformed teaching and learning at the school, driving up pupil progress. Ofsted found the school to be ‘Good’ in all categories in 2016. Appointed Executive Principal and subsequently Deputy Regional Director, he took responsibility for Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill, supporting staff development and raising student attainment, developing a strong culture of collaboration.

We are excited to say that we are developing our family in this region and welcome Oasis Academy Temple Quarter - our newest free school being built in the Temple Meads are of Bristol.
We offer opportunities for extended learning beyond the core Academy day. Our extended provision through our Hub team is at the centre of our community work. The team deliver a wide range of services which engage public, voluntary and business sectors in the establishment of a centre of education and lifelong learning. We aspire for the Academy to be at the heart of our local community, recognised by others for our clear understanding and support of local issues and awareness of community needs.
At Oasis we recognise that people are not two-dimensional beings; we are each a whole person with a broad range of aspirations and needs and these needs are interconnected. To truly help someone with their educational needs, it is vital to also be aware of their emotional needs, spiritual needs and economic needs.
As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive. We call our model for these communities ‘Hub.’ Watch the video above to learn more about our vision for hub.
Oasis Academy Brislington is part of Oasis Community Hub: South Bristol. As well as the Academy, the Hub runs a number of services for the community. By ensuring that all these services are joined up and rooted in same ethos we want to see the entire community transformed for the better.
