I would like to take this opportunity to provide an update about the examination outcomes at Outwood Academy Danum from the summer and the start to the new academic year.

Post 16 students achieved great success at AS and A level and we are delighted to share that one of our Post 16 students successfully gained a place at Cambridge University to study veterinary science, which is a huge achievement.

At GCSE students at Outwood Academy Danum made excellent progress (almost half a grade more for every student in every subject compared to other schools across the country) and 61% of them secured the combined English and maths grade 4+, and even more spectacularly 47% gained this at grade 5+.

The start to the new academic year has been very settled and it is proving to be a privilege to walk around the Academy every day. Our new Year 7 students have embraced the secondary stage of their educational journey and regularly tell senior staff that they ‘love’ their new school, think Outwood Academy Danum is ‘great’ and that they enjoy learning with us.

We are very keen to showcase the work we do with parents and carers and would welcome requests to visit the Academy – any time. Should you wish to take the opportunity to do this please contact Mrs D Nelson, the principal’s PA.

Change to payment method for Academy catering facilities

Significant changes are taking place in the way payments can be made for catering facilities. From 1st September 2018, there will be no facilities within school to accept cash payments for catering facilities. From this date, payments to your child’s catering account will only be possible through either the online secure website ‘ParentPay’, or using cash at local stores where you can see the Paypoint logo.

We strongly advise parents to begin using either of these methods as soon as possible so any problems can be sorted before the cash facilities in school cease to operate.

A copy of the letter sent to parents can be found below.
