I am delighted to welcome you to North Oxfordshire Academy. This is a school where everyone is moving in the same direction and working relentlessly hard with students, staff, parents and the whole of the local community to build an innovative, happy and successful academy delivering the very highest standard of education .
We are a thriving 11-18, non-selective academy based in Banbury where everyone, both staff and students strives to be the best that they can be. Our mission as part of the United Learning family of academies is to bring out ‘the best in everyone’.
We are proud to be a community where the language we all speak is ‘good learning’. Every decision is made in the best interests of the students to improve their learning.
North Oxfordshire staff and students are encouraged to live their daily academy lives with the following three values;
•To create a positive learning environment where everyone is welcomed and valued
•To strive to be the best that they can possibly be. No excuses, no shortcuts, no limits
•To have a relentless focus on high standards of uniform, behaviour, attendance, punctuality, learning and achievement.
North Oxfordshire students enjoy their school lives. We offer a varied curriculum and every student is encouraged to study the subjects that they are interested in. In addition, the Personal Enrichment Programme (PEP prp) offers students an incredibly exciting range of activities which enable them to explore their broader interests. Every student is expected to perform at the highest level. Every student is expected to excel at something.
Every student at North Oxfordshire is special with individual needs. As a result, each student deserves and gets the academic mentoring and pastoral care that suits them best. We have a vertical tutoring system in which older students are encouraged to take care of and be role models to the younger students. We are constantly improving and listen to the student voice. When we can do more, the students let us know and we address the issues.
At North Oxfordshire Academy we positively encourage and value the support and contributions of parents. There are a number of ways in which you can become involved including attending Parent’s Evenings and mornings and Parent Forum Meetings. Please have a look at the ‘Parent’ section on our website for further details.
The staff and students are proud of our academy and it’s achievements. Our exam results go from strength to strength and this year we are proud to be the most improved school in Oxfordshire.
