I would like to take this opportunity to provide an update about the examination outcomes at Outwood Academy Danum from the summer and the start to the new academic year.
Post 16 students achieved great success at AS and A level and we are delighted to share that one of our Post 16 students successfully gained a place at Cambridge University to study veterinary science, which is a huge achievement.
At GCSE students at Outwood Academy Danum made excellent progress (almost half a grade more for every student in every subject compared to other schools across the country) and 61% of them secured the combined English and maths grade 4+, and even more spectacularly 47% gained this at grade 5+.
The start to the new academic year has been very settled and it is proving to be a privilege to walk around the Academy every day. Our new Year 7 students have embraced the secondary stage of their educational journey and regularly tell senior staff that they ‘love’ their new school, think Outwood Academy Danum is ‘great’ and that they enjoy learning with us.
We are very keen to showcase the work we do with parents and carers and would welcome requests to visit the Academy – any time. Should you wish to take the opportunity to do this please contact Mrs D Nelson, the principal’s PA.
Attainment 8 = 45.2
Progress 8 = +0.36
Strong pass in English and maths = 48%
Ebacc entered = 13%
Bbacc passed = 9%
The deadline for entries to the Outwood Academy Danum Year 7 and Year 8 500 word short story competition has closed.
Good luck to all the students who have entered.
The winners will be announced on Friday 23rd March 2018.

All students return to the Academy
You can now contact the Academy to arrange a time to collect your exam certificates. You will need to bring photo ID when picking them up.
If someone else is coming to collect them, we will need a letter from the student stating the name of the person who is picking up the certificates on their behalf, and that person will also need to bring photo ID with them.
Payments for Catering Services
Outwood Academy Danum would like to remind parents of the option to pay for school meals using the ParentPay system. ParentPay is an online payment method which eliminates the need for students to carry cash throughout the day. ParentPay allows parents to pay online at any time of day, check their child’s catering account balance and see what their child is purchasing.
If you wish to use this online system, please email your child’s name to email@example.com and we will send you the information required.
Please can parents/carers refrain from parking at Heatherwood School when dropping off and collecting students from the Academy. Also please do not park in the Wheatley Golf Club car park as parking at the Club without permission may be subjected to penalty fees.
Outwood Academy Danum will be fundraising in support of Sport Relief during the week commencing Monday 19th March.
Students at Outwood Academy Danum were invited to take part in a competition for World Book Day which involved recreating a scene from their favourite piece of literature in a shoe box.
We are delighted with the progress being made by our Year 7 and Year 8 students who are participating in the Accelerated Reader programme. Currently there are six students who have read more than 1 million words.them
