Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Oxford Spires Academy.

 
At OSA, we have a strong ethos centred on the belief that every student has the right to first class education, and we consistently promote high expectations through our academy motto ‘Be the best you can be’.

OSA is a vibrant place of learning, underpinned by expert teaching of a challenging and broad curriculum. We provide high levels of pastoral care and support via our fantastic House system, as well as a comprehensive PSHE programme.

We think that enrichment opportunities are important for all students, and our offer in this area is extensive. We believe in high standards of behaviour and conduct, and our academy is a happy and calm place to learn. We are a diverse and inclusive academy, and we are committed to comprehensive education.

Academic success is very important to us and we have a strong track record. Our students achieve well and many progress into our successful and flourishing Sixth Form. Our students have strong destinations after leaving OSA, often to Oxbridge and other Russell Group Universities, and into higher level apprenticeships. However, academic success is only part of our purpose. We also provide excellence in music, drama, sport, and the arts and we value all practical and creative pursuits. We also develop the qualities that are important in any young person such as self-reliance, courtesy, respect, initiative, and determination.

We are an outward facing school. We are proud to belong to Anthem Schools Trust, and this gives us the opportunity to collaborate with other schools. We also work with an extensive network of education providers, businesses, and charities. These networks allow us to offer our students a rich blend of opportunities.

It is a privilege to be Principal of such a fantastic academy and I would be delighted to show you around. To arrange a Principal’s Tour, please contact me at principal@spires.anthemtrust.uk.
