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. You’ll also find yourself working at the heart of the nationally renowned Outwood Grange Academies Trust, with career prospects that could take you anywhere you want to go.
In 2012, we were judged Outstanding and by 2015 had beaten our previous record by 13%. In January 2016, we were named as the highest performing and fastest progressing school in the five Tees Valley authorities, and among the top 5% nationally. Our results climbed again in June 2016, with 78% of students attaining the new measure of A*-C in English and Mathematics and 87% achieving A*-C in Maths alone.
These achievements are remarkable by any standard, but particularly when you consider that as Bydales School we were placed in Special Measures in 2013. Under the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, 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.
