Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Our Future Home

Our academy is currently based in temporary accommodation on Rymill Street, close to King George V DLR station. We have worked hard to ensure that our students feel at home, fully support and have access to all the facilities they need to succeed and thrive whilst our future home is under construction. 

Our future home

The new Oasis Academy Silvertown will be a five-story, purpose built school on North Woolwich Road, close to West Silvertown DLR station, on the site of a former fire station. 

The planning process for this has been both in-depth and exciting, and we were delighted when construction work began in the summer of 2020. 

March 2022 Update

We are delighted to be able to confirm the date of our move to our permanent building.  The academy will be moving to its permanent home during the summer holidays 2022.  Work on site is on track for completion well in advance of this move date and as a result we are confident that we can now prepare with full certainty for our move this summer.  This means that current students will remain at the Rymill Street temporary site until the end of the Summer term 2022 and will start the Autumn term at the permanent site in September 2022.  

While we previously expected to move at some point during Spring 2022, the COVID-19 pandemic caused delays to build materials, resulting in the building being ready slightly later than planned.  We are fully supported by the Department for Education in our plans for the move and are confident that this schedule is the best outcome for our students and staff.  Throughout the summer term we will have time to run transition events, visits to the site and make thorough preparations for an exciting start in September.  In addition we are very pleased that our Year 11 students will benefit from taking their final GCSE exams in the spaces that they are familiar with, have revised in and completed their mock exams in.  In addition, we look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 students who will be the first cohort to begin their secondary schooling at our brilliant permanent home.

 

A message from our Principal

Our Oasis Silvertown family are delighted to see our new home taking shape, at the heart of our West Silvertown community. Our students are looking forward to using the incredible facilities our permanent building will offer, especially the excellent sports, art, music, technology and performance spaces. We are also thrilled that our permanent home will be situated at the heart of the community at West Silvertown in this exciting next chapter for our Oasis family.

A message from our Regional Director

The whole academy community are all looking forward to being in their permanent home in the heart of West Silvertown. This is a great moment for us and we can’t wait to see the students making great use of all the new facilities. I have no doubt that the academy will go from strength to strength as this move approaches.
