Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Oasis Academy Lister Park. We are a thriving 11-19 comprehensive academy set in the Manningham area of Bradford, close to the beautiful grounds of Cartwright Hall and Lister Park. 

I am incredibly proud to be the Principal of such a vibrant and progressive academy and feel privileged to serve the local community and our wonderful families who live here. 

The ethos of our Academy is a clear one: to enable all our students to thrive and progress through the nurture, care and guidance we give them.  At Oasis Academy Lister Park, every child really does matter and we work hard to ensure that all is done in our students’ best interests – whether that be providing a curriculum matched to their individual abilities and interest, or ensuring their progression to the most appropriate pathway once they finish their qualifications with us. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment that also challenges students to achieve the highest academic standards. 

We provide a positive, supportive and well-disciplined environment which enables all students to fulfil their potential and achieve success in all aspects of school life. We want our students to leave with the skills to adapt, flourish and make the most of every opportunity regardless of the challenges they face in an ever changing world.  We are fully committed to the highest possible standards of care and guidance which will develop our students in to open-minded, flexible and resilient young people ambitious to succeed and make a positive contribution to society. 

Ofsted recognises the Academy as being good in all areas where pupils’ personal development and welfare are of paramount importance. The school is a caring and thoughtful community in which pupils demonstrate compassion for others. Students’ own attitudes, alongside the quality teaching provided by our staff, that leads to them to doing so well. We also know that to achieve our aims, being part of a strong multi-academy trust is essential. Oasis Community Learning is committed to professional excellence and provides first class strength and guidance to all staff at Oasis Academy Lister Park. 

Our positive partnership with Bradford Council also means we are able to work collaboratively with other local schools to provide exceptional education at the heart of our community. Strong effective relationships with our parents underpin the work we do and, working together, our students succeed.
