Oasis’ vision is one of community transformation. It is about people, aspirations, opportunity, education, employment and enterprise. Oasis Community Learning was established in 2004 with the express purpose of transforming learning, lives and communities through the development of the Oasis Academies and their community Hubs.
We believe that individuals will thrive best when the community around them flourishes. This is why, as part of our dedication to raising educational standards, we recognise that children don’t live in isolation; they are impacted, influenced and shaped by the lives and circumstances of those around them.
OCL’s mission is to create and sustain a network of excellent learning communities working in the context of the Oasis ethos where every student can reach their full potential. OCL believes this can be achieved through clear leadership, outstanding staff, a positive, affirming environment, strong partnerships between students, parents/carers and the local community and the wider national and international links that Oasis’ global operations create.
As a family of academies, Oasis now offers an exciting and ambitious vision for the future. Oasis students benefit from the expertise of professionals who raise students’ aspirations and learning. All our academies enjoy the leadership, support and challenge of our Academies Education Directorate who refuse to accept that there is a ceiling on what can be achieved.
We strive to enable all our staff to achieve their full potential, benefiting from our commitment to continuous professional development. We facilitate individual development and long term career progression. We foster excellence at all levels, believing in investing in our staff so they can enjoy and perform their jobs to the best of their ability.
Our Principals form part of a national network committed to raising standards and developing highly effective practice. We have established a national group of lead practitioners and advanced skills teachers to support our vision of setting a standard of high expectations in teaching and learning through the sharing of outstanding practice.
