The aim of our Academy is to be an outstanding school and community hub. It is our aspiration that families, local residents and communities are able to access our state of the art facilities and make the most of adult learning programmes, healthy living advice, outstanding sports facilities and out of hours youth activities.
Central to the ethos of Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey is the idea of a rich and balanced educational environment - academically, vocationally, socially, morally, spiritually, physically, emotionally and environmentally.
At Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey our goal is to raise aspirations, unlock students' potential and work towards achieving excellence through encouraging a can-do culture which nurtures confident and competent people. We aim to develop informed and active learners with a strong sense of self-confidence who can explore questions, seek solutions, solve problems and are not afraid to fail initially, because from failure springs learning and success.
Oasis believes that this can be achieved through world-class facilities, outstanding staff, clear leadership, a positive, affirming environment and a partnership between students, Parents/Carers and the Academy.
Every young person who attends our Academy is given the best of our time, energy and resources. We work tirelessly to help people see and realise their potential and we contribute to communities who value and respect themselves and celebrate others.
All students therefore receive a thorough grounding in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT, spending approximately half their week in these subjects.
