School inspectors labelled the Oasis Academy Fir Vale ‘inadequate’ in a recent report. They identified many areas needing improvement. Ofsted also stated that those who attend the school face significant personal, social and emotional barriers to learning.

Principal Helen Round commented, “Thanks to the hard work of all of our teachers, and the support of parents, we are making progress. This Ofsted report is a reminder of the work we have left to do.”
