Our children achieve significantly above the national average by the end of KS1
Oasis Academy Marksbury Road
Age 4 to 10 years
I would like to welcome you to Oasis Academy Marksbury Road – our small, but mighty academy of very precious staff and children. As the Principal it is a true privilege to be leading this academy, with the most dedicated team of professionals supporting me. Together we are united with the unwavering belief that all of our children can and will succeed!
Oasis Academy Marksbury Road opened in September 2015 as new school in the heart of Bristol housed in a state of the art new building. We are a community school in the most literal sense – positioned at the end of Marksbury Road, right in the heart of the community that we serve. We opened with one Reception class and we are now a two-form entry academy with two new Reception classes being added each year. We are proud of our academy – and we are proud to be building a beacon of excellence for the children and families of Bedminster.
Our vision is clear and concise – Building and Achieving Brilliance. At Oasis Academy Marksbury Road we offer the highest quality of education; an exciting and relevant curriculum, the highest standards in teaching and learning, stimulating indoor and outdoor learning environments and a commitment to the very best academic outcomes for our children, which grow from the highest of expectations. We know that our children and staff are in the very privileged position to be building and achieving brilliance here, each and every day.
Mrs C Robinson,
We are proud to be judged as'outstanding' in all areas of the Ofsted framework (Overall effectiveness, Effectiveness of leadership and management, Quality of teaching, learning and asessment, Personal development, behaviour and welfare, Outcomes for pupils, Early years provision).
We are an Oasis 'Best Practice Academy' and are proud to share our excellent practices and procedures with our wider Oasis family of academies.
We pride ourselves on our positive and productive relationship with parents and carers to achieve the very best standard of education for our 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.
