I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Johanna. As a good/outstanding school we chose to become an Academy in September 2011. We decided to become part of locally based Oasis because their ethos accorded with ours. Thus, we can work together to widen opportunities for families in our locality.
As an Academy, we have the freedom to deliver a learning experience which is innovative, challenging and responsive to the needs of individuals. We treat all our pupils as individuals. We personalise learning to meet their needs whilst making learning engaging and fun. We have high expectations and help our pupils to do their very best so that when they transfer to secondary school they are equipped to learn and progress. As a member of the global organisation Oasis, the Academy provides unique opportunities for our young people and our wider community. We benefit from working in partnership with, and learning from, schools across different continents as well as those locally and nationally.
We are based in Johanna Street off Lower Marsh, behind Waterloo Station. We may be in the middle of a huge city but the school has a village feel to it. We are a fully inclusive, community school.
