Join us in our vision...

The vision for Oasis Community Learning has always been to create :

"Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community "

in every community that we have the privilege to serve.

With this vision at the forefront of everything we do, we are, (with the full support of the Department for Education), continuing to grow in the numbers of Academies joining the Oasis family and with 49 open Academies, we are now one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts in England.

We operate in four main regions of England: the North, the Midlands, the South West and London and the South East, providing primary, secondary and all-through education.

Join us in our ethos...

In an organisation that has community at its heart and is driven by ethos and values to ensure that every child achieves their potential, we are committed to a model of inclusion, equality, healthy relationships, hope and perseverance throughout all the aspects of the life and culture of each Academy.

Join us on our journey ...

By joining Oasis Community Learning your school would become part of a dynamic Multi Academy Trust with an excellent record of achieving a status of Good or Outstanding – moving from 30% Good or better Academies in September 2014 to 80% Good or better now.

The opportunity to join together and face the coming challenges of education policy and financial sustainability means that your team could become part of approximately 5,000 staff across the group many of whom are outstanding, driven individuals, leaders and visionaries committed to providing a rich educational experience for every child and young person in our care.

Within each of our regions, we operate a local collaboration network, ensuring support, challenge and learning are at the heart of the shared journey to exceptional. 

Join us in eliminating the gap for the disadvantaged...

We have a relentless commitment to raising the bar for all and eleiminating the gap for our disadvantaged students.  We are making the difference to countless children and young people in Oasis communites across the country. At Oasis Academy Hadley, secondary phase, we have recently done just that - there is no gap between the more and less advantaged. 




We are committed to every child and young person in our care reaching their full potential and developing holistically across every area of their lives both now and in the future.

Join us in getting it right ...

The sustainability of OCL is down in part  to a number of intentional strategic decisions to ensure that all students staff and schools are able to be served, supported and challenged as part of our family.  To do this we undertake a process of due diligence for any school wanting to join the trust. This process aims to establish a mutually beneficial 'fit' for anyone joining the Oasis family and supports a shared sustainable future.

  • You are a designated teaching school
  • You are a 2FE or larger Primary
  • You have sustainable pupil numbers and demographics ( above 70% of PAN on role) 
  • You have a sustainable and balanced budget
  • You have a sustainable plan for any major liabilities
