Enrichment & Extra-curricular
At Oasis Academy Mayfield we believe that in order for our students to lead a happy and successful life they not only need strong academic results but also to have developed key ‘life skills’ that will help them get on in the workplace. We define ‘life skills’ as confidence, articulacy, social skills and teamwork.
The experiences that enable young people to develop these skills are an essential part of a well-rounded education and yet can easily be overlooked. In order to ensure that our students can stand shoulder to shoulder with a students from the most privileged of backgrounds and compete on an equal footing we have designed an Enrichment Programme that encompasses a wide range of aspects of school life.
Our extra-curricular programme runs during school lunchtimes or most frequently as our Period 6 programme between 3-4pm. There is also an opportunity to become take part in our hub outreach offer which runs after 5pm and on weekends.
Our extra-curricular programme offers our students an additional opportunity to take part in an activity they would otherwise, not be able to take part in or to have an additional opportunity to extend their knowledge, understanding or success in a particular subject or area.

We believe it is vitally important that our students understand what is happening in the world around them and for this reason we have developed our assemblies to focus specifically on key events, dates, months e.g. Black History Month and Holocaust Memorial Day and areas that our students need to have an understanding of e.g. E-safety and mental health awareness.
Our current affairs tutor activity ties to our assemblies and is an additional opportunity to find out more information using a range of credible sources.

During the Covid-19 pandemic we were sadly unable to run trips and many opportunities that we would typically run this year are heavily restricted or unable to continue due to continued closure. We are currently in the process of re-establishing our trip offer and hope to relaunch this properly at the end of July 2022.
However, there are key trips which we are committed to ensuring happens. This is our Oasis commitment to ensuring students have a residential trip offer. We are hopeful to offer this to our current Year 7s and 8s by July 2022.
We are also hopeful that we will be able to run our university trips for small groups in the Spring and Summer term of 2022.
We have leadership opportunities for our students that include being a tutor representative, year representative, prefect, head prefects, peer mentors, anti-bullying ambassadors, restorative justice ambassadors, being part of a sports committee.
