Oasis Academy Limeside became a DfE designated Teaching School in 2013. It leads Oasis Innovation, the National Teaching School Alliance for the Oasis Community Learning academy group.

Limeside has a long history of not only achieving excellent outcomes for a significantly disadvantaged community, but also of supporting and encouraging other teachers to understand how to do the same in their own schools. Limeside achieves this through high quality, high impact school to school support.

Oasis Innovation now works nationally with Oasis Academies, locally with colleagues in Oldham and regionally with partners in Greater Manchester as part of Greater Manchester Learning Partnership. Oasis Innovation also oversees teacher training programmes and other school improvement focused CPD in Greater Manchester, Greater London and Birmingham.

Our aim is to grow the capacity of a school led system – both within Oasis Community Learning and with our local partner schools. We seek to highlight and promote excellent practice across their family of schools, enabling colleagues to share expertise and learn from one another.

 The Northern Alliance

 

The Northern Alliance are a group of ambitious primary and secondary school leaders and schools who have come together to use our collective capacity, creativity and insight to ensure that all our young people achieve the best they can and become the best they can be and are meant to be.  16 partner schools from 4 Local Authority areas (Oldham, Rochdale, Kirklees and Stockport) have all signed up to the Alliance’s Memorandum of Understanding. We subscribe fully to the government’s plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school led system.

The Learning for All Alliance is a group of SEND and mainstream primary and secondary schools. Our particular vision is to improve the quality of teaching and learning for those with SEND and those who are underachieving and non-statemented within SEND and mainstream schools. Good practice in SEND is good practice for all. The alliance partners are experts in key areas that reflect school improvement need locally & regionally – SEND, EAL, peer to peer support, business management, raising standards through the development of staff, 3 – 19 experience across all key stages and educational settings, bridging the gap between school and employment for our most at risk school leavers.

 

The lead school of the Learning for All Alliance is the New Bridge Multi Academy Trust (MAT). It was formed in September 2014 and presently comprises New Bridge School, New Bridge Learning Centre, Spring Brook School, the Spring Board Project and Hollinwood Academy. The MAT supports the learning, social and pastoral needs of over 700 young people aged between 4 and 19.  In August 2011 we opened a 19-25 provision, Horizons. All the components form the New Bridge Group.

 

The Learning for All Alliance embraces the opportunities that collaborating within a self – improving, school – led system will bring and are committed to forging sustainable partnerships to further local, regional and national priorities.
