It's the Southampton school that promises excellence for everyone.

Something new principal Claire Taylor is going to work hard to deliver.

After spending the last four years working alongside previous head Phil Humphreys, and then acting interim head for the last 18 months, Ms Taylor is happy to finally be able to build upon the great work that has already been done to take the school from a good school in the eyes of Ofsted to an 'outstanding' one.

Part of the school's success is making sure students feel that their voices are heard and are able to take an active part in their education and prepare them for their future. The recently elected Student council has already made an impact by lobbying to improve drinking water facilities in the school, which Ms. Taylor said has had a positive impact not only on students but has also reduced the schools plastic usage dramatically.

"It's great when they leave with a great set of exam results but showing them what they can go onto next is just as important," she said.

During the school's last Ofsted report in May 2016, inspectors praised the leadership's passion for wanting the very best outcomes for all pupils at Oasis Academy Mayfield.

It said: "Clear leadership has led to rapid improvements in all aspects of the school’s work since the previous inspection.

"He and the associate principal share an infectious enthusiasm and determination for continual improvement that is admired and embraced by teachers and pupils.

£Consequently, pupils’ progress, has improved significantly since the previous inspection."

Ms Taylor said:"We have made fantastic progress thus far and are looking forward to the next stage of the school's development.

"I'm delighted to have been given the chance to be a part of that."
