Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Oxford Spires Academy.

On behalf of all our students and staff I would like to thank you for your interest in Oxford Spires Academy and for visiting our website. Oxford Spires Academy is a great non selective academy which serves the East Oxford Community. With 1300 students from ages 11-19. As part of Anthem Schools Trust our aim is to be ‘the best version of ourselves’ we constantly strive to ensure that students here have every opportunity to do so.

Oxford Spires Academy is a great school and we are extremely proud of our culture and we are committed to continuous improvement. We want to be truly exceptional in every aspect of our school community and find innovative and creative opportunities to build a passion for life-long learning within our students.

Our wonderful students achieve great progress and fantastic outcomes. Many of our students continue to study in our Sixth Form and the vast majority of our students transition successfully into university onto courses of their choice. Our Sixth Form offers a unique experience to our students, our students have a high profile within the school and are role models to our younger years.

We have 100% success rate for applications to Oxbridge Universities for the last two years.

As a school we are extremely proud to be a multicultural, multi-faith community. We celebrate the diversity of our staff and student population and we encourage students to celebrate their own heritage but equally to be proud British citizens. The bedrock on which our school community is built is the excellent relationships between staff and students and between students themselves.

When you visit the school you will notice the positivity and mutual respect that is shown to all members of the school community. You will observe the pride within our students and their eagerness to share their ideas, interests and learning. We have a superb house system, a diverse extra-curricular provision, a wonderful learning environment and fantastic students and staff. But don’t take my word for it; if you have not done so already, please contact us and we will arrange an individual visit to the school. You would be most welcome.

I hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you will re-visit it regularly to keep up to date with our latest news. Please contact us at the academy if you have any further questions or require any further information.

I look forward to welcoming you to the academy.

With very best wishes

Jon Hebblethwaite
