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.

Best wishes,

Joanne Botley (Principal, Primary phase)
