The school educates children of primary and secondary school age, and also has a sixth form. Originally two schools, Ashburton Secondary Modern Boys and Ashburton Secondary Modern Girls, which merged in 1971 to become Ashburton High School. At a later date, the school became Ashburton Community School and became an Academy in 2009 and was renamed Oasis Academy Shirley Park. The school is sponsored by the Oasis Trust.

The academy has a partnership with local English Premier League-club Crystal Palace dating back to the former Community School. Former Shrewsbury Town winger Austin Berkley teaches at the Academy.
