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.

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.
On 17 October 2017 we were delighted to welcome parents into the Academy for an open morning; during which they toured the Academy site, met senior leaders and the principal and had the opportunity to ask questions about our work.
On Thursday 28th and Friday 29th September Student Voice hosted a Macmillan Cancer Support fundraising event.
Year 11 carried out physical geography fieldwork in Hornsea last week. They all worked really hard and were a credit to the Academy.
