On Friday 26th January 2024, students from Oasis Academy Coulsdon were invited to attend the local Holocaust Memorial Ceremony at Croydon Townhall. With addresses from the Civic Mayor, Councillor Tony Pearson, and speeches from Marilyn Arbisman from the Croydon Synagogue and Timothy Locke from Generation2Generation, the theme of this year was the ‘Fragility of Freedom’.
Each year students, staff, and parents at Oasis Academy Coulsdon perform little acts of kindness within our community to spread some Christmas cheer. At the end of a very challenging term for our family at OAC following the loss of two members of our student body, we wanted to make sure that our Christmas Miracles were still celebrated in some way.
On Friday 17th November, students at Oasis Academy Coulsdon took to the rowing machines and exercise bikes in an attempt to row and cycle 101 miles for International Men’s Day. This figure was chosen as it represents the number of men who commit suicide each week in the UK.
The wait is over- GCSE results day 2023 finally arrived on Thursday 24th August, and students at Oasis Academy Coulsdon were greeted with envelopes that contained the best ever GCSE results in English and Maths the Academy has achieved. As national results saw a dip in the 2023 exams, students at OAC have secured amazing grades, with almost 70% attaining a 4 or above in English and Maths and 49% securing 5 or above.
We held out second annual Culture Day at the Academy on Friday 21st July, with students in Year 7, 8 & 9 all celebrating and experiencing the different cultures that make up our wonderful community.
