Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Community Hub

We are in the process of developing opportunities for extended learning beyond the core Academy day. Our extended provision through our Hub is at the centre of our community work.  We aspire for the Academy to be at the heart of our local community, recognised by others for our clear understanding and support of local issues and awareness of community needs.

At Oasis Blakenhale we recognise that people are not two-dimensional beings; we are each a whole person with a broad range of aspirations and needs and these needs are interconnected. To truly help someone with their educational needs, it is vital to also be aware of their emotional needs, spiritual needs and economic needs.

As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive. We call our model for these communities ‘Hub.’ 

Oasis Academy Blakenhale is part of Oasis Community Hub; as well as the Academy, the Hub runs a number of services for the community. By ensuring that all these services are joined up and rooted in same ethos we want to see the entire community transformed for the better.
