High Expectations, there can be no excuses…

When it comes to operating in challenging circumstances, Oasis Academy Immingham know how it feels. Serving a coastal community that is predominantly White/ British with an over representation of children qualifying for the pupil premium in an area that is statistically identified for high levels of deprivation. When you take into account that it also qualifies as an ‘isolated’ school, then the odds of achieving successful outcomes might be considered against them.

Against a backdrop of significant under achievement, the school converted to Academy status in 2007 but success was not immediate. Principal, Kevin Rowlands explains how on his arrival 5 years ago, expectations and aspirations were low. “Our students might have started out with ambitions to be successful but by and large they didn’t expect to achieve this. This was reflected in their appearance, their attitudes to learning, their behaviour, their confidence and ultimately, their outcomes”.
