PEDRO

I joined The Oxford Academy in Yr 12 in Sixth Form, having lived in Portugal.  My older English cousin studied at TOA6 and recommended it to me. I really like the community feel of the Sixth Form and we often have small celebrations which are really good fun and get-togethers. I study Sociology and really like the teachers and we often have really thought provoking discussions.  I also study Art, which I have enjoyed since being a small child. I am not sure what I am going to do in the future, but I have made some really good friends since joining The Oxford Academy.

LUCAS

Student

I have been at the school since year 7.  I enjoy Sixth Form as you are given the chance to study the subjects you really enjoy, it is a good mix of being hard work but also ‘laid back’.  It has been really helpful having lots of opportunity on writing personal statements and CVs. There are some really great teachers in Sixth Form and I have recommended it to my twin brothers who are coming in September. I have had lots of fun moments at the school and particularly on Red Nose Day. I am aiming to become a football coach.

Sebastian

Student

I am Seb. I am a year 9 student at the Oxford Academy. I started here in year 7 and I think that the Oxford Academy is a great school because of the facilities that we have on offer. I really enjoy football and using the 3G pitches for PE and after school clubs are good fun. I play on the year 9 boys team so having good facilities to practice on makes us a better team. We have won two games so far this year and are hoping to win lots more. We have a football club each Thursday after school and then we do fitness work in PE lessons both of which I really enjoy. I play football with a local team as well and we train in Blackbird Leys twice a week.  Things that I enjoy the most at TOA are the mix of lessons that I get to do in year 9. My favourites are Geography and PE. I want to choose them for my GCSE options later in the year. I am not sure what I want to do when I leave school so I am enjoying having a go at lots of different subjects this year. We are learning about different careers at the minute in PSHCE which is making me think about what subjects I would like to do next year. 

Imogen

Student

Hi I am Imogen. I am a year 9 student at TOA. I think that the best thing about being a student at the Oxford Academy is the opportunities that people get. Some examples of these opportunities are the trips on offer. There is a skiing trip next Easter that students can get involved with. There is a trip to France to help students that are studying French. There is a whole range of activities that happen every day after school. Our tutors show us the timetable each week so that we can plan what we would like to go to. I hope to go on the trip to France as I am really enjoying my French lessons  I enjoy my lessons because they are interactive and the teachers are really helpful. The subjects that I enjoy the most are Geography and French. I get to choose my GCSE options this year but I am unsure what I would like to choose yet. Year 9s will get the chance to speak to our teachers about this before we make any choices. There is a parents options evening so that I can speak to my parents about what is on offer. I also like that we have awards assemblies, last year I won a certificate for being one of the students with the most credits in the year group.
