We were thrilled to learn the news that one of our Year 8 students had won the Blue Peter Create Something Great competition. Star Lane is an avid fan of the tv show and a keep Minecraft gamer, and so this was her dream competition.
This year’s Christmas Miracles have been a HUGE success, and we could not be prouder of our Year 10 students who ran in.
Each year we run our Christmas Miracles Campaign in December. This initiative is run by the Year 10 cohort of that year, and its aim is to raise money for charities, collect items for local causes, and to spread a little Christmas cheer.
We have enjoyed celebrating STEM day at the Academy this year with activities in STEM subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths. Students may have only just returned from our half term break, but they have come back eager and enthusiastic as they got stuck into the various activities and competitions.
"Grief is the price you pay for love", said the Queen about the death of her husband, Prince Philip.
We mourn the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, whose life has been exceptional. Guided by her strong faith – based around exactly the same values that we call the Oasis 9 Habits – she has been inspirational. In her Christmas Day TV Message, back in 2014, she said this, “For me, the life of Jesus, the Prince of Peace…is an inspiration and an anchor in my life…Christ's example has taught me to seek to respect and value all people of all faiths or none."
We returned to this exam hall this academic year, and after two years away the students at Oasis Academy Coulsdon were keen to show what they were capable of. Five years of lessons, two months of Saturday school sessions, 30 weeks of daily after school revision classes, and hundreds of hours of independent study saw all came to fruition on Thursday 25th August 2022 as the class of 2022 received their GCSE results.
On Thursday 21st July 2022, the academy celebrated our first ever culture day. This is an event we hope to make an annual day in our calendar and judging the response from students to the day we think that it will become one of the most popular dates in our year.
