When you join Outwood Academy Bydales, you’ll find yourself working and studying in one of Britain’s most beautiful locations: the picturesque coastal village of Marske-by-the Sea, close to the stunning North York Moors National Park.

In 2017, we were named as the highest performing school in the North East for students achieving a 5+ in both English and maths. Maths results in 2017 were in the top 2% nationally for progress. Our results have climbed year on year since joining Outwood Grange Academies Trust. In 2014 prior to Outwood, 57% of students secured A*-C in both English and maths. This now stands at 85% securing 9-4 in 2017. AT +0.65 our Progress is third in the North East. In January 2018 the academy was judged outstanding by Ofsted in all categories.

These achievements are remarkable by any standard, but particularly when you consider that the predecessor Bydales School was placed in Special Measures in 2013. Under Outwood, we have reinvented ourselves, with a clear vision to put students at the heart of everything we do and raise standards to transform lives.

Our innovative vertical curriculum centres on a two-year Key Stage 3 and a three-year Key Stage 4, allowing students to take control of their own learning. The most capable and ambitious can benefit from fast-track opportunities and workshops to accelerate their progress, whilst others enjoy the time they need to succeed via an extended Key Stage 4. Valuing vocational, practical, creative and academic ability equally, we ensure that no child is ever left behind.

Why not come and visit, and see our fantastic students and staff at work? You are welcome any time.

Admissions

Proposed reduction in the published admission number for Outwood Academy Bydales

We consulted during the period 30 November 2017 to 11 January 2018 on the proposal to reduce our admission number from 160 to 150 starting in September 2019. Thank you to those who read the documents below, and responded. We will publish the decision before the 31 March 2018.

‘Word of the Week’ is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. There is an Academy WOW each week, displayed around school and on the website, and its use is reinforced by VMG tutors and in school assemblies. The word is designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings, in a drive to improve student articulacy to even higher levels.

“As vocabulary is reduced, so are the number of feelings you can express, the number of events you can describe, the number of the things you can identify. Man grows by language.” – Sheri S. Tepper
