Welcome to Oasis Academy New Oak. We are a friendly, inclusive and busy Academy with two specialist resource bases, one for children with Autism and one for Deaf learners. This website has been designed to give you some idea of what we do at Oasis Academy New Oak, the curriculum we teach and the opportunities that the children have while they are with us. The website will provide regular updated information.
Our motto is to 'Work Hard, Look Smart, Be Nice' and our aim is to ensure that the children grow into confident learners with the skills they need to welcome opportunities and challenges on their learning journey. Our standards are high because we believe that everyone is capable of remarkable success and we aim to create an environment where all children thrive, broaden their horizons, take full advantage of the opportunities given tot hem and ultimately achieve their full potential.
We look forward to working with you and understand that as parents and carers, nothing is more important to you than your childrens' success and happiness and that is why we are committed to ensuring they have the best start in life. Please feel free to contact the Academy with any queries you may have.
We are located on an incredible site
We are fully inclusive of all our staff and students
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.
