A Message From the Principal

I would like to welcome you to Oasis Academy Connaught - a place where everyone is encouraged to be the best they can be!  Oasis Academy Connaught is a proud school and Nursery in the heart of Knowle West, blessed with large grounds and recent refurbishment.  Oasis Academy Connaught has a highly unique curriculum which aims to ensure all children make excellent academic progress and have a high level of engagement and challenge; enabling them to learn the skills they need to be successful.

At Connaught we offer children an exciting range of opportunities throughout their school life, including overnight camps in London, Devon and Somerset, weekly swimming, local and further afield trips, forest schools, sporting activities, music, cooking and Spanish classes.

However, not only are we a vibrant, happy school for children, we are also a hub for the whole community, providing, amongst other things:  a coffee shop, toddler groups, family support and a range of adult education.

Parents are not only welcome but take an active role in leading activities within the school.  We also benefit from strong links with Oasis Academy John Williams and Oasis Academy Brislington.

Best Wishes,

George Fraser 



Why Choose

Oasis Academy Connaught
Community Matters

We care about our community, and integrate whole families into the Connaught family.

Our Community

We are proud to be part of the Oasis Hub South Bristol

Oasis Academy Connaught runs a number of hub services for the community. By ensuring that all these services are joined up and rooted in the same ethos we want to see the entire community transformed for the better

One of the main priorities at Oasis Academy Connaught is developing the links with the local community as well as with other Oasis Academies.

Many of our current Year 6 pupils will be starting at Oasis Academy John Williams or Oasis Academy Brislington in September 2018. There will be lots of transition projects during the summer term to ensure that the children are well prepared for their new schools.

The Oasis Community Cafe

If you love good coffee, good cake and a good laugh, then the Oasis Coffee Shop is the place for you!  We're a friendly and vibrant community space, open to everyone on a Friday morning from 8:30 - 11.30.

We believe that people should come before profit which is why our prices are so low.  We also run a 'Have One On Us' scheme for anyone who doesn't have enough for a drink.
