Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Curriculum

It is our belief at Oasis Academy Enfield that the a strong, varied and challenging curriculum not only opens up the mind of our young people to becoming life-long learners, but creates a culture of excellence throughout the hallways and classrooms.  We offer a knowledge rich curriculum, carved under the National Curriculum guidelines, which is both rigorous and robust, and supplemented by a wide and varied enrichment curriculum.

Marking and Feedback

You child will receive regular feedback on their work across their subjects. This may be verbal feedback during lessons, written in their planners as praise for their behaviour or in formal marking in note form. We encourage peer-to-peer feedback too as a means to building positive communication skills, this is something our teachers undergo on a weekly basis also. Continuous feedback can be just as valuable, if not more so, than an overall grade. We want to ensure that our students feel comfortable in the knowledge that they are performing at a certain level, and with encouragement from us - go on to reach their potential. 

Options Process

Here at Oasis Academy Enfield we are passionate about ensuring our young people are not only given a choice in their future but feel empowered and informed about what their options are. 

In year 8 students make some very important decisions about what they are going to study in years 9, 10 and 11. When deciding on their Pathway Choices it is important to have a balance of subjects that reflect their abilities, talent and interests. We run a Pathways Information Evening in February to help year 8 students and their families make good choices.

In Year 11 we run an open evening for the Sixth Form where you can see all of the courses on offer, at level three (A Levels and BTEC) and level two (equivalent to GCSEs).

Courses on offer in Years 9, 10 and 11
All students must take:  GCSE English Language, GCSE English Literature, GCSE Mathematics, at least GCSE Additional  Science, and core PE
The majority of students follow an EBacc pathway meaning that you take:  GCSE French, Spanish or Turkish, and GCSE Geography or History
Students then choose from the following options:  GCSE Triple Science (Physics, Biology and Chemistry), GCSE  Art, BTEC Art and Design, GCSE Business, NCFE Food and Nutrition, NCFE Craft, GCSE Drama, GCSE Computer Science, GCSE Media Studies, GCSE Music, GCSE Physical Education, GCSE Psychology, GCSE Philosophy and Ethics, BTEC Travel and Tourism, ASDAN COPE and Edexcel Functional Skills
Each year we adapt our curriculum to suit our students need and demands so the options list can vary slightly
