I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Johanna. As a good/outstanding school we chose to become an Academy in September 2011. We decided to become part of locally based Oasis because their ethos accorded with ours. Thus, we can work together to widen opportunities for families in our locality.
As an Academy, we have the freedom to deliver a learning experience which is innovative, challenging and responsive to the needs of individuals. We treat all our pupils as individuals. We personalise learning to meet their needs whilst making learning engaging and fun. We have high expectations and help our pupils to do their very best so that when they transfer to secondary school they are equipped to learn and progress. As a member of the global organisation Oasis, the Academy provides unique opportunities for our young people and our wider community. We benefit from working in partnership with, and learning from, schools across different continents as well as those locally and nationally.
We are based in Johanna Street off Lower Marsh, behind Waterloo Station. We may be in the middle of a huge city but the school has a village feel to it. We are a fully inclusive, community school.

Welcome to London and the South East (LSE). We are the largest region in Oasis with 14 academies, serving diverse and dynamic communities. Our academies provide education to 9546 students in early years, primary, secondary and sixth form.
We are very proud of our students’ achievements. During 2017-18, for the third consecutive year, academy improvements resulted in stronger outcomes across the region, at every phase. In particular, our youngest children in early years made a very promising start to Key Stage 1. Their achievement was well above the national average. At the same time, a high number of our sixth formers successfully gained places in further education, training or employment.
We are unquestionably stronger when we work together. Our regional development is underpinned by collective drive, ambition and high expectations. As a region our:
- Students are provided with opportunities to collaborate and succeed, beyond their immediate community. This year all LSE academies are participating in The Shakespeare Schools’ Festival (the world’s largest youth drama festival) and the LSE Regional Music Showcase.
- Leaders, teachers and support staff are part of the LSE professional learning community. This provides ongoing training and development through our regional improvement networks and support forums.
- Communities continue to be well supported by our Hubs and the work of Oasis Community Partnerships.
- Conference is always an annual highlight. This year we are focusing on Learning to Learn. We are delighted to be working Dr Daniel Muijs and Dr Christian Bokhove, both leading experts in this field, who will join us this year to share their knowledge and practical approaches.
In LSE we thrive on feedback, welcome new ideas and visitors to our academies. So do be in touch with Lara.Fisher@Oasisuk.org if you would like to make contact.
