Graham Skidmore

Head of School.

I started my teaching career at Nunthorpe School in 2005 as a teacher of drama, where I progressed to become Head of Drama, a post I held for 3 years. Following this I took a promoted post as Head of House at Stokesley School, in North Yorkshire. Whilst at Stokesley I joined the Senior Leadership Team as an associate member and left Stokesley to pursue a permanent Senior Leadership post as an Assistant Headteacher, at then Redcar Academy.

I joined Redcar Academy in January 2013 and was promoted to Vice Principal in September 2016. During my time at the Academy I have seen many changes, and have seen the impact that can be made to young people’s lives. Since November 2015, when working with Outwood Academies Trust, the school has gone from strength to strength. I am thrilled that the formal conversion has occurred and both proud and privileged to say I work at Outwood Academy Redcar.
