I had heard good things about the Principal at Oasis Academy Arena and I was interested to find out more about the school. I went to an open evening and listened to the Principal give his speech and answer questions from parents. I was impressed with his honesty and this really reassured me that I was making the right choice. My son is now in Year 7 and is getting on well. I was worried at first and wondered if how he would settle in but he has made friends very quickly. He loves everything about school and knows that he can ask for help from any of his teachers if he needs it. I know the school has the children’s best interests at heart. Teachers work hard to provide a great education. It is a good school and I recommend it parents who are looking at secondary schools for their child.-Parent at Oasis Academy Arena
