Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


At Oasis Academy Short Heath, we believe that a well-rounded education is vital for nurturing well-rounded people.  Because of this, we ensure that the curriculum is enriched with a variety of opportunities for our children to be involved with sport, art, music and much more.

Activities vary from year to year but may include:

  • Football
  • Tag rugby
  • Hockey
  • Netball
  • Gymnastics
  • Athletics
  • Gardening
  • Art
  • Dance
  • Drama
  • Choir

Music lessons

The academy provides access to peripatetic music teachers if parents/carers wish to buy extra music lessons. Most activities take place after the academy day. Children may be asked to contribute a small fee towards the cost of providing materials for these activities. 

Sporting Aims

Children at Oasis Academy Short Heath are encouraged to participate in a variety of sporting activities ranging from gymnastics, dance, and small ball games to team games such as netball, football and rounders. All children in Key Stage 2 attend swimming lessons during the academic year.

Our aim for Swimming is that all children will achieve their 25m+ before leaving us here at Oasis Academy Short Heath. Please take a look at our information on what we are doing with Swimming, by clicking here.

Whilst urging the children to do their best at all times, we also believe that children should learn to enjoy taking part and that winning is not the only mark of achievement. The academy is a member of the local schools sport partnership and benefits from participating in a range of organised competitions and sports festivals.
