Outwood Academy CitySheffield

Serving the bustling city of Sheffield, Outwood Academy City was constructed in 2011 with state-of-the-art facilities and joined Outwood Grange Academies Trust three years later. 

The school has undergone a huge transformation for its 1000 students, with an innovative curriculum and a personalised approach to learning enabling them to realise their vocational, practical, creative and academic abilities. This was recognised by Ofsted in February 2019, when the academy was judged ‘Good with Outstanding Leadership’. Inspectors noted that, “Leaders and teachers demonstrate high expectations for all pupils. They are determined that pupils achieve well in their subjects”.

You’ll find Outwood Academy City a warm and welcoming school, where students love to learn and every member of the community feels valued and engaged. We operate at the heart of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, so there’s plenty of scope to build your career across South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and move into the highest levels of leadership.

The Technology Department encompasses Resistant Materials, Graphics, Product Design, Food Technology and from September 2019 we are excited to be adding Engineering to our curriculum. You should possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference and have a firm love of your subject and a desire to support our young people to reach their full potential. An Engineering specialism is desirable though not essential.

As part of a growing multi-academy trust, the successful candidate will be well supported and have access to a range of high quality professional development through the Outwood Institute of Education.
