My favourite memory was the geography trip I went on with my class and then even though the weather was raining all day we still had fun. My message to my best friends are that I love them and thank you for staying with me through these 5 years through secondary school and thank you to all the teachers at oasis who have helped to be where I am today. -  Annie M

 

Being at Oasis taught me a lot about myself and others around me. I lost and found myself during secondary school and many teachers were more than helpful and supportive, such as Miss Elston, Miss Mintrim, Mrs Gibbins and so much more - Samia B
 
Every teacher has been so helpful throughout my academic journey and helped me to achieve what I didn't think I could. Really looking forward to studying here for A-level and seeing all the teachers I didn't have an opportunity to thank in person. - Amy B

 

Thank you to all the teachers that helped me through the years especially miss mintrim and mr caulderbank and to all my friends for helping me during this stressful and strange year. I wish the best for everyone and the best in the future x - Louise B

 

Year 11, it has been an absolute pleasure being your Head of Year over the last two years. You have all grown up and matured so much over the last year and watching you work so hard towards your goals was inspiring. I am incredibly proud of every single one of you and I know that you are all going to go on and do amazing things. Please make sure you keep us updated and stay in touch! I can't imagine not pushing you all down the school corridors and into lessons next year - I will miss you all!  - Miss Mintrim x

 

It has been an absolute pleasure working alongside a wonderful set of students. The saddest part in my long journey at Oasis has been not seeing you all to the very end. I wish you all every success in your chosen career, always remember life is what you make it, so make it wonderful. -  Michelle G

To wish all Kestrels (11KE1) the very best for the future. You were an interesting mix of students with varying ambitions but ultimately motivated to give your very best across all subjects. Many of you engaged maturely in PSHE discussions and there were a number of interesting perspectives expressed. What it showed were students with opinions shaped by the Oasis experience + of course your HOY Miss Mintrim!!! Take Care. - J Rose, Tutor Of Kestrel
 
Y11, a HUGE well done for getting through a tough and strange academic year. I'm so glad our paths crossed, it's been a pleasure watching you guys grow and working with you over the years. I wish you nothing but the finest of Gods blessings, success and prosperity in all areas for your future. Remember, never let anyone make you believe that you can't because you CAN. The world is waiting for you, now go and take it by STORM! Lots of love and God bless. Mrs. T :-) - Mrs. Thompson :-)

Being at Oasis has really had an impact in shaping who I am today, and whilst being here I have created so many memories from making friends in Harmony Camp to visiting Barcelona and exploring their culture. It has been a really good experience for me and I was so upset to find out that we couldn't end the year properly. Since being at home, I have realised how blessed I was to be placed in the hands of wonderful teachers. So I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to you all for investing your time in me, and seeing potential when i didn't. Finally I want to say thank you to everyone in Year 11 for just being who you are. I wish nothing but success and happiness in whatever you do. We are still the Class of 2020 x - Maia F

My 5 years at Oasis like most of us have been a rollercoaster, but if Im really honest I wouldn't change any of it as it has made me who I am today. I want to thank all those teachers who believed in me when I didn't believe in myself and pushed me to be my best. But most of all I want to thank God for all the people He put in my life, good and bad and for getting me through it. I hope all the relationships I've made will only continue to grow fron here. I wish you all the best in the future and hope you achieve whatever you put your mind to. Anyways shout out to my real ones you know who you are and I acknowledge you lool. - Shireesha N

 

Good blessings mandem - Abdi S

 

Thank you to all the staff at Oasis, especially the teachers who really helped me improve my skills in lessons. Special shout out to Miss Gibbins for her hard work and diligence in her work and helping me mature into a young man. All Glory To God for starting The changing room (TCR) in Oasis and i hope to see it continue and expand. OASP 2015-2020 Football Team was the best team to come out of Oasis, shame we didn’t win nationals but we can only cherish the memories we made together. Thank you Jesus for maturing me in the environment of Oasis and protecting us through the 5 year’s at Oasis. I hope to see everyone if there a 10 year reunion. Time for us (C.O.G) to Dominate and take what is ours. Brandon S
