About Outwood Academy Bydales
Chief Executive Officer: Martyn Oliver
Executive Principal: Andrew Wappat
When you join Outwood Academy Bydales, you’ll find yourself working in one of Britain’s most beautiful locations: the picturesque coastal village of Marske-by-the Sea, close to the stunning North York Moors National Park.
In 2017, we were named as the highest performing school in the North East for students achieving a 5+ in both English and maths. In January 2018, the school was judged outstanding by Ofsted in all categories. Maths results in 2017 were in the top 2% nationally for progress. Our results have climbed year on year since joining Outwood Grange Academies Trust. In 2014 prior to Outwood, 57% of students secured A*-C in both English and maths. This now stands at 85% securing 9-4 in 2017. Our Progress is 3rd in the North East. In January 2018 the academy was judged outstanding by Ofsted in all categories.
These achievements are remarkable by any standard, but particularly when you consider that the predecessor Bydales School was placed in Special Measures in 2013. Under Outwood, we have reinvented ourselves, with a clear vision to put students at the heart of everything we do and raise standards to transform lives.
Our innovative vertical curriculum centres on a two-year Key Stage 3 and a three-year Key Stage 4, allowing students to take control of their own learning. The most capable and ambitious can benefit from fast-track opportunities and workshops to accelerate their progress, whilst others enjoy the time they need to succeed via an extended Key Stage 4. Valuing vocational, practical, creative and academic ability equally, we ensure that no child is ever left behind.
We can transform your career just as we have transformed ourselves.
