Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


As a means of recognising positive behavior, building cohesiveness and providing a competitive element between our students, we have a House system in place. 

All  of our students and staff belong to a house, and have dedicated areas across the academy for house socialising. Inter house competitions are set up throughout the year, including Sports Day and Arts Week, where our young people have the opportunity to rally together and show off their talents and skills. 

There is also an opportunity to gain points and rewards for your house throughout the year for positive behaviour, commendation totals, sports results and academic excellence. At the end of the school year, the house with the most points will receive a special prize. 

Oasis Academy Exemplar has 4 different houses, all named after famous and influential people who have made a positive impact on the world.

House Rowling

J. K. Rowling, OBE, is one of the most influential British novelists in history. Famed for her creation of the Harry Potter universe, she is a novelist, screenwriter and producer. She has brought happiness to millions across the world and is a true role model for budding creatives. 

House Farah

Sir Mo Farah, CBE, is one of Britain's most successful distance runners. On the track he mostly competed over 5000 meters and 10,000 meters but has run competitively from 1500 meters to a marathon. An ambassador for healthy eating, he is a sporting hero and philanthropist. 

House Nightingale 

Florence Nightingale was an English social reformer and statistician. She was the founder of modern nursing, and came to prominence whilst serving as a manager of nurses she trained herself during the Crimean war. She was a true humanitarian. 

House Walliams

Whilst the whole academy is thought of as one big family, we encourage each house to serve as a second family in our corridors and classrooms.
