Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


At OASB we are immensely proud of the achievements of our 2022 Year 11 and Year 13 cohorts and the results they have achieved. These results demonstrate the immense hard work and determination of students and staff over the last 5 and 7 years! When comparing South Bank to schools with a similar profile of students, our Progress 8 score at GCSE puts us as the 6th best school in the country. This rises to 3rd best school in the country when the English Literature early entry* results are factored in as they normally would be 

We are especially proud that with these results, and the skills and resilience they have developed over the last 5 years, 100% of our Year 11s have moved into their next stage of education, training and employment. 

Without inclusion of English Literature results* Oasis Academy South Bank has a Progress 8 score of 0.43, meaning that student here make approximately half a grade better in each subject than the national average. Mapping these results to include English Literature and Community Languages exams, as would regularly occur, the Academy has a Progress 8 score of 0.76 demonstrating that students here make more than three quarters of a grade better in each subject than the national average. The average Progress 8 Score for state-funded schools in Lambeth is -0.15.

^ Including English Literature results sat in 2021

Of our latest cohort of students 93% were entered for the EBacc qualification meaning that they have been entered for English, Maths and Science qualifications as well as a language and humanity. The latest available data shows that on average schools are only entering 40% of their students for this qualification with a government target of 75%. Fantastic progress and attainment were also achieved in English, Maths, Science, Languages and Humanities. 

A-Level Results  

Alongside the fantastic success of our GCSE results, our young people have produced an outstanding set of A-Level results, our first full set of results after the disruption of the pandemic. 70% of our students’ A-Level grades were awarded at A*-B. Amongst this cohort there is no gap in results between disadvantaged students and their more advantaged peers – both in grades and progress. All students moved onto further study, degree apprenticeships or employment with 50% of students going to university are going to a Russell Group university including UCL, Manchester, Sheffield, LSE, Queen Mary, Bristol, KCL and Nottingham. 

*  Our Year 11 cohort sat their English Literature exam as an ‘early entry’ exam in 2021 in line with our former curriculum model. We were very proud of the hard earned results for our students in this subject but these results cannot be considered in our 2022 headlines.
