About the employer

Oasis Academy Nunsthorpe is situated on the Nunsthorpe Estate in the western part of Great Grimsby in North East Lincolnshire. Until September 2012, Oasis Academy Nunsthorpe was called Nunsthorpe Community School. The original school was built in 1931 and was a traditionally built single story building, typical of those constructed during the inter-war years.

The name ‘Nunsthorpe’ takes its name from the nuns who, in the 16th century, lived in the local priory, and from the word ‘thorpe’, the Old Norse name for village. Although the priory was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1539, the name ‘nuns of the village’ (Nunsthorpe) has kept its name right up to this day.  

Oasis Academy Nunsthorpe is a large co-educational school, which admits students between the ages of 3 to 11 years.  The Academy has been adapted to accommodate disabled pupils. All major entrances/exits are wheelchair-friendly and there are a number of toilets designated and adapted for disabled student use within the academy building.
