Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


Oasis Academy Shirley Park aims to be more than just a school. We aim to become a true learning hub in the community we serve. To make this a reality, we include and involve as many members of the community as possible in what we do.  Already, we have links with many local organisations, including St Mildreds Church, Rotary Club of Croydon, Home Start Croydon, Lifeline Croydon, Churches in Action, Three Faiths Forum and national organisations such as National Citizenship Service. We also are the lead school for the “Croydon Hub” which is an alliance with other Croydon schools to work on extending opportunities for families in terms of work, education and support.

We believe that everyone in the community has a role to play in taking Oasis Academy Shirley Park to the outstanding educational environment for our students that we strive to be. It doesn’t matter how much or little time you have available, or whether you are a parent or not. If you live near the Academy and want to make a real difference in your community, we would welcome your help.

There are many ways you can get involved, including:

  • Listening to Primary children read
  • Helping with after-school clubs.
  • Mentoring students.
  • Reading with our EAL students to help them to develop their literacy skills.
  • Parent Teacher Association.

. . . and much more besides!
