Welcome to Oasis Academy Lister Park. We are a thriving 11-19 comprehensive academy set in the Manningham area of Bradford, close to the beautiful grounds of Cartwright Hall and Lister Park.
I am incredibly proud to be the Principal of such a vibrant and progressive academy and feel privileged to serve the local community and our wonderful families who live here.
The ethos of our Academy is a clear one: to enable all our students to thrive and progress through the nurture, care and guidance we give them. At Oasis Academy Lister Park, every child really does matter and we work hard to ensure that all is done in our students’ best interests – whether that be providing a curriculum matched to their individual abilities and interest, or ensuring their progression to the most appropriate pathway once they finish their qualifications with us. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment that also challenges students to achieve the highest academic standards.
We provide a positive, supportive and well-disciplined environment which enables all students to fulfil their potential and achieve success in all aspects of school life. We want our students to leave with the skills to adapt, flourish and make the most of every opportunity regardless of the challenges they face in an ever changing world. We are fully committed to the highest possible standards of care and guidance which will develop our students in to open-minded, flexible and resilient young people ambitious to succeed and make a positive contribution to society.
Ofsted recognises the Academy as being good in all areas where pupils’ personal development and welfare are of paramount importance. The school is a caring and thoughtful community in which pupils demonstrate compassion for others. Students’ own attitudes, alongside the quality teaching provided by our staff, that leads to them to doing so well. We also know that to achieve our aims, being part of a strong multi-academy trust is essential. Oasis Community Learning is committed to professional excellence and provides first class strength and guidance to all staff at Oasis Academy Lister Park.
Our positive partnership with Bradford Council also means we are able to work collaboratively with other local schools to provide exceptional education at the heart of our community. Strong effective relationships with our parents underpin the work we do and, working together, our students succeed.

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.’
We are part of the Oasis Hub: Lister Park.
