“The whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.”Sir Michael Wilkins - Academy Principal and Chief Executive
The Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) was borne out of the success of Outwood Grange, a large school of 2,200 students which has achieved record exam results every year for the past 10 years, culminating in 84% including English & Maths. Outwood Grange is an Outstanding school recognised by Ofsted – achieving all Grade 1s – and was one of the first National Leader of Education Support Schools.
We believe we have the capacity and the experience to inspire students and staff and bring about rapid and sustained improvement for the benefit of the Local Authority and community.
Sir Michael Wilkins, the academy principal and chief executive of Outwood Grange Academies Trust, has had the honour of Knighthood conferred upon him in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List.
The Trust is delighted to announce that, for the third year running, all Outwood academies have achieved record results with the most recent secondary academy to join the group, Outwood Academy Brumby (Scunthorpe) seeing an increase of 28% in 5+ A*-C including English and maths to 61%. This success followed an Ofsted inspection when the academy was awarded an outstanding progress judgement from Special Measures in less than a year.
