The Sixth Form Centre

The Oasis Academy Shirley Park Sixth Form is housed in the Secondary Phase Academy building and therefore benefits from all of the facilities of the main school.  These include:

  • Ashburton Library – public library with access to a large range of resources and computer suite.
  • Academy library – smaller reference library, ideal for quiet study/reading.
  • Dining facilities in Café O – healthy, good quality hot and cold food available.
  • Extensive sports facilities, including gym, large sports hall, playing fields, astro-turf, and netball and tennis courts.
  • Dance and Drama studios.
  • Art and Photography studios.
  • Large number of ICT suites.
  • Well-equipped Science laboratories.
  • Large hall for assemblies, events and performances with state of the art lighting and Audio Visual technology.
  • Indoor and Outdoor social areas.

In addition to the main school facilities, Sixth Formers have access to their own sections of the school which are completely closed off to the remainder of the student population.

  • Two purpose-built wings housing general classroom space for Sixth Form classes only.
  • Quiet study area.
  • Large Sixth Form Centre with computer suites, comfortable seating, boardroom style seating, reference library and lockers.  All Sixth Form staff are based in this area.

As the building is relatively new (April 2006), facilities are modern, well-maintained and complement the courses on offer.
