A warm welcome to Oasis Academy Shirley Park
We are very proud to have been given the opportunity to lead our Academy, which has a reputation for high standards of achievement and behaviour and has been recognised by Ofsted as Good in all areas. We are confident that as a leadership team we will be able to move our Academy ever onwards. We have very hardworking staff who care deeply about giving every child the chance to succeed. Our Academy motto defines our idea of success at Oasis Academy Shirley Park: Learning Together, Achieving Forever. We focus closely on our broad, rich curriculum which values both knowledge and skills; whilst also placing a strong emphasis on community, ethos and character formation through the lense of our Oasis Habits. Our aim is that our students leave each year (whether this be our pre-nursery, primary, secondary or our sixth form) with the skills and attributes needed to engage in the next phase of education or employment, and to lead fulfilling lives as happy, active and informed citizens.
Your support as parents and carers is incredibly important to us, and you will often see us outside of the Academy at the start and the end of the school day. Please do feel free to come speak to us, as we both look forward to getting to know you better and are excited to build strong relationships which help support our students. Oasis Shirley Park is more than just an Academy - we consider ourselves a family. It is a family that wants the very best for every one of its children, and we’re excited to welcome you and your children to our family.

We are fully inclusive of all our staff and students
We are an integral part of the community and work within our community to make it a better place.
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.

The Shirley Park Gardening Club is a chance for students, parents and community members to come together to learn how to grow vegetables and fruit.
It takes place on Thursdays from 3.30 - 4.30pm at the secondary phase. We are also hoping to use the garden for lesson times and supporting teachers to see how the garden can be used to support curriculum outcomes.
Please contact Helen Ottley on Helen.Ottley@oasisshirleypark.org if you’re interested in being involved.
