A warm welcome to Oasis Academy Warndon, part of the Warndon Hub, an academy where children thrive and excel through nurturing happy hearts, developing and encouraging enquiring minds and providing strong foundations for promising futures.
I am honoured to have been appointed Principal at Oasis Warndon, which over the last few years has a growing reputation for its dedication to excellence, but more importantly, to the children. As you are aware, I joined the academy in September 2015 as part of the wider leadership team. I have thoroughly enjoyed the journey we, as a an academy have been on and I am extremely excited about the future! The school and hub have such a dedicated, hardworking team where children are at the heart of everything that is done.
My vision for the academy is to continue to drive the academy with the equal amount of passion and dedication as my predecessor, Emily Hobson. I am looking forward to enjoying spending time with your children, reconnecting with their individual personalities, learning styles and interests. The team and I are also looking forward to being able to celebrate their successes, small and large. We will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community. Not only am I excited to begin working with your children when schools reopen, but I look forward to the work we will do together also. My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy, and safe, so they reach their full potential. This has been my philosophy throughout my teaching career and one that I think is captured by the academy vision statement of Happy Hearts, Enquiring Minds and Promising futures. I relish the opportunity of serving the community and leading team as Principal of Oasis Warndon.

The exceptional education we offer is a starting point for providing so much more within our Hubs and communities. We believe that this wider inclusive experience is not only an important feature of our Academies, it is the unique selling point of Oasis Community Learning. The purpose of the 'Hub' is to serve the whole person and the whole community. A whole person is someone who is flourishing: socially, physically, emotionally, spiritually, educationally, environmentally and morally.
Our vision is encapsulated by the following five statements:
- a passion to include everyone
- a desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences
- a commitment to healthy and open relationships
- a deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed
- a sense of perseverance to keep going for the long haul
On Wednesday 24th January 2018 The Mayor of Worcester, Mayoress of Worcester and Local Councillor cut the ribbon and officially opened the doors to our Community Hub. As many of us are aware what once was the caretakers bungalow has now been transformed into a beautiful hub which can be enjoyed by whole local community.
