Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome


I am incredibly proud to be the Principal of Oasis Academy Hadley where we have seen so many great achievements.  Our GCSE results put us in the top 20% nationally and this is because we pride ourselves on being inclusive and championing the gifts and talents of every individual.

We have an established culture of high expectations, where students are taught well and encouraged to develop into well rounded individuals, not just academically, but in arts, sports and also socially. 

Oasis Academy Hadley is an inspirational place to learn and work.  Throughout all phases of our academy we have a team of skilled and dedicated staff with a great deal of expertise.  We enjoy building positive learning relationships with students as individuals and have created a learning environment that is safe and secure. 

Our parents and carers put their confidence in us and this is something we take extremely seriously.  We are therefore committed to working in partnership to encourage all students to embrace opportunities, always try their best and never give up.

I look forward to meeting you at one of our open events.

Executive Principal

Oasis Community Learning was established as a multi-Academy Trust in 2004 with the vision to create “Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community”.

Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision.  We fully understand the trust placed in us by parents and carers who choose an Oasis Academy for their children. 

Everything we do is centred on the Oasis ethos:

  • A passion to include everyone
  • A desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences
  • A commitment to healthy and open relationships
  • A deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed
  • A sense of perseverance to keep going for the long haul

We have an unwavering belief in inclusion. This means that every student should have the opportunity to realise and reach their potential, regardless of their background. The Oasis Circle of Inclusion, which appears throughout the Academy and on our blazer badge, symbolises this belief.

We provide a very good education for all our children.  We have high expectations and want our students to have high aspirations and to be the best they can be.  We encourage our students to develop independent learning skills that will enable them to be successful in school, university and work. Our expectations of student behaviour ensures that all  can learn in a safe environment without disruption. 

I look forward to welcoming you and your family to our Academies.  Together we can ensure that your son or daughter gets the best possible start to his or her life.

Executive Principal, Oasis Academy Hadley and Enfield
