II.1.4)Short description:

Oasis Community Learning (OCL) is one of the largest multi-academy trusts in England. https://www.oasiscommunitylearning.org

We were established in 2004 with a vision to create ‘Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community’ and have since grown into a family of 52 academies.

We currently serve over 28 000 young people, 49 % of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds and 31 % speak English as an additional language.

We are determined to raise the educational bar for all our students and to close the educational gap that exists between disadvantaged students and their more privileged counterparts.

Our academies are in five main regions of England, providing either primary, secondary, all-through education or special education.

Our strong ethos is integral to our educational provision — it is an expression of our character, a statement of who we are and therefore the lens through which we assess all that we do.
