Oxford Academy

Welcome from Headteacher

At The Oxford Academy we never forget that parents entrust us with one of the most important

and rewarding jobs in the world, the education of their children. For us, that means unlocking the potential within every child in ways that ultimately make them happy, confident and competent

young adults.


I hope our website will provide you with a brief insight into some of the excellent work we are doing

in teaching and learning in order to provide an excellent education for students who attend The Oxford Academy.


Standards are very important to us and we are extremely proud of the many achievements of students and staff at the Academy.


Staff and governors are determined to provide every opportunity for pupils to achieve their potential, whatever their starting points. High expectations and aspirations sit alongside nurture and support, with pupils’ well-being at the heart of everyone’s work. OFSTED 2016   See the full report here 


We aim to excite young people about their learning and to celebrate their successes. Our staff have a passionate commitment to inspire through excellent teaching. We welcome students of all abilities who are taught in both mixed ability and set groups.


Our supportive approach enables everyone to develop the skills and knowledge required to be responsible and considerate individuals suited to the demands of our ever-changing multicultural society. There is extensive monitoring of students’ progress and regular contact with parents. We place a high emphasis on positive behaviour which ensures the Academy is a happy and safe place within which to learn.


Pupils are prepared well for life beyond school. They learn how to stay safe and be effective citizens in modern Britain. They benefit from a range of opportunities that help their wider development. OFSTED 2018


Our Academy boasts some excellent innovative educational facilities. The building was designed in partnership with students, parents, carers, local residents and our stakeholders to ensure it can be used as a community resource for the local area for many years to come.


The Oxford Academy makes a difference to young people and we very much look forward to welcoming your child to the Academy and becoming one of our many successes in the future.
