The role and what we are looking for

Under the leadership of the Principal’s PA, we need a resilient, dedicated and positive practitioner who can work well within a small team and equally shows initiative to work on their own.  Experience of working in an educational setting would be very desirable, yet not essential. 


As a member of our growing support team, you will be instrumental in laying the foundation of outstanding standards of professionalism for every single visitor, parent and student and creating a stimulating and purposeful environment where students feel safe. 


The successful candidate will be passionate and driven with good communication and organisational skills and a desire to make a difference to the lives of our students and their communities.


We therefore require a Receptionist / Administrator with a keenness to support students and staff.  In return, you will benefit professionally from the wealth of expertise and experience of our family of Academies, along with a range of support services based at Oasis National Office.


You must be willing to model and support the Oasis ethos.


This role is essential in the development of the Academy as it grows in size, year on year, to eventually house 1500 students.


Our Academy

We are a secondary school in Oldham, Greater Manchester that opened in 2018 and are dedicated to supporting our young people to reach their potential. We leave no child behind; our progress data is incredibly strong and it is attributed to the hard work of our staff and students. We work together, sharing this educational journey with a common goal - develop happy and successful leaders who are culturally enriched role models in our community.  Being part of the Oasis Community Learning multi-academy trust, we benefit from support and sharing of best practice from our regional schools, Regional Director and wider Oasis family.


We opened the Academy in temporary accommodation in 2018, with just 230 students across two year groups.  In November 2020 we moved into our new, permanent home, which is a brand new, state of the art building that sits on the old Breeze Hill School site located on Roxbury Avenue, just off Lees Road in Oldham. We have just over 500 students, and will welcome another 300 students in September 2021.
