The predecessor Bydales School was judged by Ofsted in 2013 to require special measures and joined Outwood Grange Academies Trust in September 2014. Since then the school has rapidly transformed and 2017 we achieved outstanding results of 85% 4+ and 75% 5+in English and Maths, beating the previous school record in 2012 by 25%, when it was judged outstanding by Ofsted. 90% of students achieved 4+ in Maths and 83% achieved 5+.
In January 2018 the school was identified as being in the top 2% nationally in Maths for progress with a score of +1.1. This means that on average, every student achieved over 1 grade above the grade they would be expected to attain nationally. Attainment in Maths was on average 1.5 grades above the national average. Disadvantaged students were in the top 4% nationally for progress and 0.9 grades above all students nationally.
