We have an ambitious aim for all our students: "Ready for university. Ready to Lead."
Oasis Academy Silvertown
Age 11 to 16 years
At Oasis Academy Silvertown, our vision is that Oasis Academy Silvertown will transform students’ lives by preparing them for the university or career of their choice, and enable them to contribute to their community as leaders. Our mission is simple: “Ready for university. Ready to lead.”
We aim to achieve our mission through 5 key principles, held by staff and students: Be Proud. Be Professional. Be Nice. Be Independent. Be Resilient.
The relationship we have with you-the parents and carers of our students- is extremely important to us because it’s only by working together, as a team, that your children can achieve their social and educational potential, and become excellent citizens, leading happy and rewarding lives when they leave the academy. We understand that, as parents and carers, nothing is more important to you than ensuring your children have the best opportunities in life so that you can be proud of them. That’s why keeping your children safe and continually stimulated to learn is our top priority.
Oasis Academy Silvertown is at the heart of its community, and wants to develop all its students to become leaders who will transform and give back to their local community. An outstanding school is where everyone associated with it works together as a team with the aim of helping your children achieve their academic and social potential so they are ready for university and their dream job.
You will often see me at the Academy gates in the mornings before school starts. If you happen to notice me and would like a quick word, or just want to say hello, please don’t hesitate to do so. We are all here not just for our students but for you as well. When it comes to doing the best for your children, we value your support and this means a very great deal to all our staff.
We all look forward to getting to know you and to working with you. A very warm welcome to Oasis Academy Silvertown.
To achieve our important mission we have the highest expectations of all our students and are fully inclusive
Our mission is underpinned by our values: "Be Proud. Be Professional. Be Nice. Be Independent. Be Resilient."
We are an Ofsted Good provider (May 2017) with Outstanding Judgements for "Leadership and Management", "Personal development, behaviour and welfare" and "student outcomes."
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.
We believe that it is only when we invest in a whole community that we can expect to have an impact in the lives of its most desperate and needy members. That's why we're working to create a new sense of 'village', a new sense of belonging and interdependency; hubs.
There isn't a blueprint for what a hub looks like or even what it does; they can be different in each location. Some of our hubs have gyms, others cafes and restaurants. They support local business, run FoodBanks and provide debt advice, they run schools and youth groups and they engage with local politicians. A hub responds to the needs of its community and provides a space where every person can feel safe and familiar.
Since 2004 when we began to realise the Oasis Hub vision: to build, restore and transform entire communities, we have now developed dozens of hubs across the UK.
Debt advice - Food bank - Holiday clubs - Youth Clubs
