Outwood Academy Redcar is located in the coastal town of Redcar, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. The predecessor Redcar Academy, had been supported by the nationally renowed Outwood Grange Academies Trust from November 2015, and formally became Outwood Academy Redcar in October 2017.
In the summer of 2016 students achieved greatly improved GCSE outcomes, with 52% achieving A*-C in both English and mathematics, almost doubling the predecessor school’s results in one year. In the summer of 2017, GCSE outcomes climbed again, with 60% achieving the new 9-4 (A*-C) grades in both English and mathematics, and 45% achieving the new 9-5 (A*-B) grades in both English and mathematics. The Progress 8 score in 2017 of +0.24 placed the school in Redcar top for progress that all students make from primary school, second in Redcar & Cleveland LA and 8th in the whole of the Tees Valley Five Authorities! In English, 73% of students achieved a 9-5 grade and 61% a 9-4 grade!

‘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
