About Oasis Academy Enfield

Oasis Academy Enfield opened in September 2007. The Academy was inspected by Ofsted in April 2015 and praised for its ‘ethos of high expectations’ and judged ‘good’ in all categories. This school is committed to nurturing students with both academic competence and fully developed character. The young people who join the Academy are subject to high expectations and are stretched and challenged in their learning and personal development. All students are treated as individuals; there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Learning is active, hands on, engaging and fun. Oasis Academy Enfield is a school for the community and a school for the 21st Century, preparing our young people for their future.
