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.

Students and staff at Outwood Academy Adwick are celebrating after the academy was rated ‘Outstanding’ in all categories in its latest Ofsted report this week.

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.

Sir Michael Wilkins, Academy Principal and Chief Executive of Outwood Grange Academies Trust stated “I am absolutely delighted for students, staff and governors at Outwood Academy Adwick”. He hailed the outstanding Ofsted grading as being “thoroughly deserved” and “reflective of many years of hard work by all concerned”. Sir Michael also praised the “exceptional” leadership of Martyn Oliver, Regional Chief Executive and Carolyn Blundell, Principal at the academy.

The Trust also praised the Academy Council, chaired by Councillor John Mounsey, after Ofsted recognised “Members of the governing body, through their impressive dedication and local knowledge, offer a very high level of support and challenge to the school.”

Ofsted inspectors hailed the quality of teaching in the academy as “superb” and “inspirational” and noted that “teachers are dedicated, caring and meticulous in ensuring that the needs of pupils are met”, underpinned by pupils who are “well-mannered, mature and eager to do their very best in lessons.”

The report added: “Pupils are proud of their school and appreciative of the caring adults who go out of their way to ensure that pupils’ welfare is given top priority. As one pupil put it: ‘They really, truly care about us.’”
