What our Students Say
I’ve been a student at Oasis Academy Arena since 2019; I love the welcoming and friendly environment that is offered to everyone. There are usually a lot of teachers to talk to when you need something. There are lots of things available at the school for you to engage in such as: place 2 be, lunch-time clubs and after-school clubs. We have additional facilities like school council and anti-bullying team to support the children if there is a need to.
In the school, we have facilities not many other schools have to help increase our learning; the lessons can be fun and also challenging. There is a gym at the school and on occasions we are allowed to sometimes access the sports arena located beside the school. I have made lots of friends in the school and I can say I am happy in Oasis so far.
