Oasis Academy Coulsdon named 'Most Improved' Secondary School

GCSE results day rightly celebrates the achievements of the students, whose many hours of study and hard work earns them grades that enable them to take their chosen next steps.  We are therefore delighted that the hard work of the teachers at Oasis Academy Coulsdon, who dedicate themselves to supporting their students, has been recognised and celebrated.

In September 2015 the Academy received an award celebrating the increase in the number of students achieving 5 A*s-C including GCSE England and Maths.  At Oasis Academy Coulsdon, 66% of 2014-15 Year 11 students achieved the milestone, a dramatic increase of 23% from last year. 

This success has now been recognised by national schools organisation PiXL who named the Academy as ‘Most Improved’ in London and Surrey at a special event in the Guildhall in the City of London.

Andy Booth, Principal of Oasis Academy Coulsdon, says “The staff of the Academy come to work each day because they believe in our students, and they want to support them in raising their aspirations and helping them to fulfil their full potential.

“A great set of GCSE results will assist each of our young people as they leave us to take their next step, either in education or into the workplace.  I am delighted, and proud, that we were able to support more of our students achieve 5 A*-C including English and Maths, and that as an Academy our results have improved so much. 

“This award is a tribute to all of the staff at the Academy, who all dedicate themselves to their students and enable them to do their best.”
