About Outwood Academy Valley
Chief Executive Officer: Martyn Oliver
Principal: Dave Cavill
We are an Outstanding rated, 11-18 academy based in the large friendly town of Worksop, near Sheffield and Nottingham.
Since joining the Outwood family in 2012, we have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted since 2017 and are among the top four schools for Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire for GCSE results, including English and Maths.
Innovation is central to our work, including a vertical curriculum centering on a two-year Key Stage 3 and a three-year Key Stage 4 aimed at personalised learning.
Fast-track opportunities and workshops provide accelerated routes to the most ambitious students, while others enjoy the time they need to succeed to the best of their abilities via the extended Key Stage 4.
We are not satisfied with being Outstanding and we are constantly looking to improve. We want you to help to take us to the next level.
To help you do that, we work hard to ensure we reduce workload on our colleagues, allowing more time in the classroom to put our vision of students first, raising standards and transforming lives into practice.
We will also actively invest in your future through working closely with the Outwood Institute of Education to offer access to a wide range of CPD opportunities, with all staff receiving a minimum of two hours’ CPD each week.
We also offer a generous employment package with a whole host of staff benefits, including a health cash plan, a cycle to work scheme, plus a partnership with car leasing company, Synergy, with offers exclusively for Outwood colleagues.
