Oasis Academy Silvertown celebrated the launch of a brand new secondary school, opening this September in the heart of the Royal Docks.
Nearly 90 students – the pioneer year 7 group – joined their teachers and community volunteers for a fun-filled induction day before the summer holidays. London City Airport is supporting the innovative curriculum, with the development of resources and support for all of the students to develop their enterprise skills, whilst learning about their local heritage, and how this has shaped the development of their local airport.
Charles Claxton, Principal Designate of Oasis Academy Silvertown said: “We are really excited to have the support of the local community and London City Airport have been brilliant in providing hands-on help. We are also grateful to our friends at EXCEL who generously sponsored our balloon launch.”
