Outwood Academy Danum joined Outwood Grange Academies Trust in September 2016. Outwood Grange Academies Trust is nationally recognised as a high performing academy chain. The Trust currently sponsors a number of secondary and primaries and Outwood Grange Academy has been a National Training School for nine years, having been accredited as one of the country’s first teaching schools.
Following the inspection of Outwood Academy Danum on 12th and 13th April 2016 the inspection team concluded that the Academy moved from Special Measures to Requires Improvement in all areas and Good in post 16. Now, as part of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust Family of Schools we are on a journey to become Outstanding.
We aim to:
In 2016 48% of students achieved A*-C in both English and Maths. In 2017 students achieved 61% grade 4 or above in both English and maths and this rose to 67% in 2018. The progress our students make above their expected attainment given their starting points is significantly above average. We are committed to providing high standards of education for students. Our Academy vision is ‘Students First.’ We put our students at the heart of everything we do, by focusing on ‘Raising Standards and Transforming Lives’. We simply believe that “the whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.”
