At the Oasis Academy Immingham we teach an exciting and creative curriculum. Our aim is to encourage our students to achieve their very best and to ensure they develop their skills and talents in all aspects of intellectual, social and physical development.
Our core aim therefore is to deliver a curriculum that enables our students to access an ‘English-Baccalaureate’ model. This is a model that ensures our young people are able to sit GCSEs in Maths / English / Science / Humanities and Modern Foreign Languages. In addition to this, they have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of subjects to complement their portfolio and ensure that they have the skills and also the qualifications to successfully progress on to the next stage of their education.
At Key Stage 3, we have combined our Science, Computing and Technology departments to deliver a range of exciting project based learning opportunities in what is known as STEM. This combined approach, really engages our students and allows them to apply their scientific knowledge to an exciting outcome such as designing a Mars Lunar Landing Module. STEM lessons incorporate a wide range of disciplines including Resistant Materials, Information Technology and Food Technology.
Students receive 25 hours of teaching each week - 25 x 1 hour lessons. The total learning time each day is 5 hours 20 minutes, consisting of 5 hours teaching time and 20 minutes assembly/tutor period. In tutor time, which takes place daily, students are supported by their tutor who regularly monitors attendance, progress and general well-being. This positive relationship between the student and tutor is crucial.
As a Rights Respecting School, we place a strong emphasis on developing our students in line with our 9 Habits and the UNICEF 'Rights Respecting School' articles. We recognise our wide-reaching responsibilities and ensure that we work with our young people on key contextual issues such equality, diversity and extremism and what it means to live and grow up in the United Kingdom today.
Our Students play a huge part in their own learning. We have many opportunities for students to become involved in the Student Council which looks at the quality of learning, the classroom environment, and the way the Academy links with the local community as well as our Oasis partners in Bangladesh and South Africa. We encourage our students to take responsibility for improving the community in which they live, whether that be of the Academy, the town of Immingham or the wider global community.
