About Outwood Academy Portland
Chief Executive Officer: Martyn Oliver
Principal: Gavin Swinscoe
We are an Outstanding 11-18 academy based in the large friendly town of Worksop, near Sheffield and Nottingham.
Since joining the Outwood family in 2012, we have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted since 2014 and we are ranked well within the top 10% of schools nationally for student progress. In 2018 77% of our students achieved Grade 4 or above in English and Maths.
We have nurtured an environment where teachers constantly strive to develop their skills, to improve the students learning by delivering an outstanding and challenging learning experience. This enables everybody, staff and students, can not only see but also help fulfil the potential in each other.
We are not satisfied with being Outstanding and we are constantly looking to improve. 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.
