Outwood Academy Redcar opened on 1 October 2017, sponsored by Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT). The original Outwood Grange Academy in Wakefield founded the Trust to lead the improvement of other schools in the North East of England. The Trust currently sponsors a number of secondary and primaries in the region.

Our vision is Students First: Raising Standards and Transforming Lives. To achieve this vision, we provide an ambitious first-class educational experience for every child who attends Outwood Academy Redcar, believing the quality of education a young person receives empowers their future choices and life chances.

Across our curriculum each year is designed to build to the next, ensuring a seamless transition from Key Stage 3 to 4. Curriculum planning focuses subject and core content knowledge and skills to aid our students’ knowledge recall, build their subject fluency and deepen their understanding. Our expert curriculum planning across all subjects and the wider curriculum for example Relationships, Sex and Health Education clearly state what children learn across the year and throughout their time at Outwood Academy Redcar. Our knowledge rich curriculum supports our students to access their next steps in education at every level as we believe the longer one continues in education and/or training the greater the reward in health, happiness and social mobility.
