“The whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.”Sir Michael Wilkins - Academy Principal and Chief Executive
The Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) was born out of the success of Outwood Grange, a large school of 2,200 students which has achieved record exam results every year for the past 10 years, culminating in 84% including English & Maths. Outwood Grange is an Outstanding school recognised by Ofsted – achieving all Grade 1s – and was one of the first National Leader of Education Support Schools.
We believe we have the capacity and the experience to inspire students and staff and bring about rapid and sustained improvement for the benefit of the Local Authority and community.
Congratulations to David Earnshaw, Chair of Outwood Grange Academies Trust Board, and Cllr John Mounsey, Chair of Academy Council at Outwood Academy Adwick, for their recent designation as National Leaders of Governance.
The ‘Outstanding’ rating tops a remarkable year for the Academy, after it achieved record GCSE results and has also been rated as 1st out of 55 similar schools in the Department for Education’s Performance Tables published last month.
Pupils and staff at Outwood Academy Foxhills are celebrating after the academy was rated ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ leadership in its latest Ofsted report this week.
