About Outwood Grange Academy
Chief Executive Officer: Mr Martyn Oliver
Principal: Brian Kelly
A National Training school for eleven years and one of the country’s first Teaching Schools, Outwood Grange Academy is a model school and a benchmark against which other academies’ progress can be judged.
In its full Ofsted inspection in February 2012, the Academy was found to be Outstanding in all areas: overall effectiveness, achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety, and leadership and management. As the inspectors put it: “The drive for the Academy’s success comes from the outstanding work of its leaders.”
However, we are anything but complacent, and have continued to make huge strides forward. In 2017, 85% of our students achieved at least a 4+ in both English and Maths.
Put simply, our motto is “Students First”. We put students at the heart of everything we do by raising standards and transforming lives. We believe that the whole point of schools is to put children first, and everything we do reflects this goal.
If you share our view, we invite you to join us on our journey.
