Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Community Hub

Oasis Hub: Lister Park is run within OALP, however it is open to all members of the community, not just those associated with our academy. This means that our events are available to everyone - including aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and the families of children who do not attend the academy. As a Community Hub we are here for you and everyone around you.

We will continue to update our website with everything taking place at the Community Hub, so keep your eyes peeled for any upcoming events!

What is happening at our Hub?

During the October half term holiday, we held a roller-derby session which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. Due to popular demand, we will be holding more sessions next year for both young people and their parents. So, be sure to sign up early to save your space at our next sessions!

In January 2020 we launched OHANA; an amazing opportunity for families to come together and get stuck in to fun arts and crafts activities and games together. During OHANA, there will also be the opportunity to get involved in workshops around keeping your family safe, healthy and happy with different topics being explored each week. OHANA sessions are free and include refreshments for all the family (e.g. drinks and snacks).


For any information about our community hub, please contact the academy.

We offer opportunities for extended learning beyond the core Academy day. Our extended provision through our Hub team is at the centre of our community work. The team deliver a wide range of services which engage public, voluntary and business sectors in the establishment of a centre of education and lifelong learning. We aspire for the Academy to be at the heart of our local community, recognised by others for our clear understanding and support of local issues and awareness of community needs.

At Oasis we recognise that people are not two-dimensional beings; we are each a whole person with a broad range of aspirations and needs and these needs are interconnected. To truly help someone with their educational needs, it is vital to also be aware of their emotional needs, spiritual needs and economic needs.

As such, we believe in communities that are holistic, interconnected and totally inclusive. We call our model for these communities ‘Hub.’ Watch the video above to learn more about our vision for hub.

We are part of the Oasis Hub: Lister Park.
