Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Principal's Welcome


On behalf of all our students and staff, I would like to thank you for taking an interest in Oasis Academy Mayfield.

I am always excited to welcome future students and their families, or potential colleagues who share my enthusiasm for education and dedication to transforming the community we live in and serve.

Oasis Mayfield is a non-selective academy in the East of the city of Southampton with 900 students from ages 11-16. As part of Oasis Community Learning, our aim is to provide ‘exceptional education at the heart of the community’.

We continuously strive to ensure this, and I am ambitious in my pursuit for Mayfield to become the exceptional school our community deserves.

In order to achieve this we have three simple priorities:Leading happy and healthy lives

We believe that taking care of ourselves if the first step to helping those around us flourish.
Our goal is to help the entire community to lead happy and healthy lives by prioritising the wellbeing of staff, students and the community.

Transforming lives and empowering communities

We believe we achieve more together than we can on our own.
Our goal is to champion our local community. We endeavour to be outward facing to provide and receive support from other like- minded institutions.

Providing an exceptional educational experience

We believe that a curriculum should meet the needs of all, striving for personal as well as educational excellence.
Our goal is to ensure access to high quality teaching and an aspirational curriculum that meets the needs of individuals.

We believe that all students are capable of making outstanding progress, whatever their starting point and firmly believe there are no barriers to achievement that cannot be overcome by a determined and resilient student and a strong and supportive school team. To support this aim we place a high value on personal development for our students and professional learning for all our staff.

Our curriculum is broad, we focus on mastering the core subjects whilst developing our students creative and physical talents. We are strongly committed to giving our students the widest variety of experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. There is a diverse and exciting extra-curricular programme which allows students to broaden their interests outside of the school day, this ranges from the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award to learning modern Greek!

I have worked at Mayfield since 2014 and was appointed as Principal in 2018, so I know what a truly amazing experience it is to be part of the Mayfield community. I am very proud of our school and, most importantly, of the students and staff with whom I have the pleasure of spending each day.

I hope you enjoy browsing our website, if you are interested in learning more about us then please do get in touch.
