About Us

We are proud that Outwood Academy Bydales is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and we are delighted to be based in the friendly, picturesque, coastal village of Marske-by-the-sea, in Redcar and Cleveland.

We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

The Academy became part of the Outwood Family of Schools in 2014 and as a member of the Outwood Family we believe in putting Students First, raising standards and transforming lives.
