About Outwood Academy Acklam
Chief Executive Officer: Martyn Oliver
Principal: Steve Merifield
Outwood Academy Acklam is at the heart of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust and we strive to be an exemplar of best practice for schools across the North East of England.
We are innovators with a vertical curriculum centering on a two-year Key Stage 3 and three-year Key Stage 4, designed to personalise learning for every student, helping them to reach their potential.
Meanwhile, fast-track opportunities and workshops offer accelerated routes to some students whilst others can benefit from additional time to master their subjects via our extended KS4. With a holistic view of education, we value vocational, practical, creative and academic excellence equally, creating an environment where every student can shine.
Our objective is to create well-rounded and successful citizens who deeply embrace British Values: respect for democracy and the rule of law, passion for individual liberty, a commitment to mutual respect, and tolerance for differing faiths and beliefs.
We aim to create an environment where every student leaves with an enquiring and open mind, ready to deal with all of life's challenges and engage with a diverse, thrilling and constantly changing world.
To this end, we encourage every child to realise his or her full potential, and have made considerable academic progress, with almost two-thirds of pupils achieving a strong pass in English and Mathematics.
We want you to help to take us to the next level.
To help you do that, we work hard to ensure we reduce workload on our colleagues, allowing more time in the classroom to put our vision of students first, raising standards and transforming lives into practice.
We will also actively invest in your future through working closely with the Outwood Institute of Education to offer access to a wide range of CPD opportunities, with all staff receiving a minimum of two hours’ CPD each week.
We also offer a generous employment package with a whole host of staff benefits, including a health cash plan, a cycle to work scheme, plus a partnership with car leasing company, Synergy, with offers exclusively for Outwood colleagues.
