At Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill we want our students to enjoy learning, make great progress and achieve exceptional outcomes. In order to do this we use a range of methods to determine what each individual student does well and develop the areas they need to improve upon.
Our lessons are planned carefully to take into account the strengths and the developmental areas of every student in order to enable them to progress in each subject. In addition to the assessment for learning that take place in class, we report formally to parents and carers throughout the year. The report contains information about progress and attainment in every subject as well as important learning information such as attendance, home learning, effort and next steps.Highlights of the Oasis Academy Lord’s Hill 2019 GCSE examination results include:
- Students achieved a record equalling total of seventeen grade 9s in the new GCSEs. This includes eleven grade 9s in Maths and the Sciences, a record at the Academy. In Mathematics, the percentage of students achieving grades 7-9 rose by 5% compared to 2018.
- In History, the Academy has its best ever record results on the new GCSE, with 44% of students achieving a grade 4 or above.
- Students performed exceptionally well in a number of GCSE subjects, with more than 75% achieving grade 4 or above in Art, Dance and Polish.

We value our partnerships with parents and carers and we are committed to holding individual meetings with every student and parent each year. This is a dedicated time when parents meet with class teachers to discuss what is working well and how to improve discussing subject specific priorities and progress. In addition, individual meetings are arranged in all year groups when there is a concern about a student’s learning. This is a great chance to find out what your child has been learning in each of the areas of the curriculum and to see more about where their talents lie.
