About Us

Jayne Gaunt - Principal

Outwood Academy Danum is a ‘Good School’ following our recent Ofsted inspection in December 2018. Ofsted said ‘The school is improving quickly and securely… the school has improved substantially in almost every area’.

We had the best GCSE and A Level results ever in summer 2018. Post 16 students achieved great success at AS and A level with each student making on average half a grade more progress than would be expected given their starting points. Most of these students are now attending university, we are extremely proud of them all for their hard work! Ofsted said ‘The effectiveness of the sixth form is good and underpinned by strong leadership, effective teaching and sound care and guidance.’

GCSE results were the highest ever achieved in the academy. 68% of students achieved grade 4 or above in both English and maths putting our academy 3rd out of 18 schools in Doncaster and an increase of 17% over two years. 48% of students achieved strong passes, grades 5 or above in both English and maths- a fantastic achievement! I am particularly proud that students of all ability levels were successful, making excellent progress from their starting points, again students made almost half a grade extra progress given their starting points making Outwood Academy Danum ‘well above average’ as an academy. Grade 9 is the new highest grade achievable; almost 4% of grades were at this level that shows the particular dedication of our students. Ofsted said ‘Pupils start at the school with prior attainment usually below average. By the time they leave, their attainment is above national averages in a range of subjects.’

We work with our students to ensure that they know how to be safe online, in the community and in school and Ofsted said ‘The promotion of pupils’ personal development and welfare is good’. ‘The arrangements for safeguarding are effective and a strong culture of safeguarding exists in the school’ they also said that ‘the strides pupils make in confidence, resilience, tolerance and ambition contribute greatly to their good attitudes to learning, strong work ethic and robust mental well-being.’ Most importantly, ‘pupils say they feel safe and they are confident that staff would help them, if they raised a concern’.

Teaching and learning in the academy is strong. Ofsted found that ‘Over time and currently, it is crystal clear that teaching is good and improving securely.’ ‘Teachers’ good subject knowledge and high expectations of what pupils are capable of, together with engaging and challenging teaching, inspire pupils to work hard and be ambitious for their futures.’ This means that students value their work and Ofsted commented on the ‘productive buzz’ they saw in lessons. Differentiation is used to ensure that ‘all groups of pupils are challenged and supported appropriately, including the most, and least, able pupils.’

At Outwood Academy Danum, we believe that every student can and should achieve the very best academic and personal targets they, as an individual, can. We believe in supporting students to be the very best version of themselves they can be in order to secure the very best life chances. Ofsted said that they found a ‘supportive and caring ethos’ in the academy and this reflects our goal of putting ‘students first’.

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.
