Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome

A warm welcome to Oasis Academy Skinner Street.

We are delighted that you’re considering our academy for your child(ren). We are incredibly proud of our pupils and the wonderful people we see them blossom into throughout their time with us, and we hope our website reflects that and what we can offer you.

When you become part of Oasis Academy Skinner Street you are joining more than a school; you are joining a family. Every member of staff, from our facilities and catering staff through to the most senior members of our teaching staff, are advocates of this and our ethos and values.

We care deeply about creating an innovative, exciting and inclusive learning environment centred around the Oasis ethos:

  • A passion to include everyone
  • A desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences
  • A commitment to healthy and open relationships
  • A deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed
  • A sense of perseverance to keep going for the long haul.

When you walk through our halls you will get a real feel of our academy. You are guaranteed to be greeted with a smile, by staff and pupils alike. Pupil achievement is recognised, and the showcasing of exemplar work is paramount to motivating our young people to do their best.

If you see me at the gate, welcoming your children into our academy home or seeing them off safely, feel confident in the knowledge that we are here to serve our community and appreciate taking the time to get to know you and your needs.

I look forward to meeting with you, and hopefully welcoming you to our academy, and another exciting academic year.


Mrs V Richmond
