It is important to note that anyone can apply for a place at Outwood Academy Redcar, regardless of where they live. It is NOT a requirement to live in the old ‘admission zone’. Parents can apply for apply for a place at any secondary school. It is only when that school becomes oversubscribed, that the distance from the school becomes an issue. Every parent who placed Outwood Academy Redcar as first choice received a place for their child last year.
The Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) was borne out of the success of Outwood Grange, a large school of 2,200 students which has achieved record exam results every year for the past 10 years, culminating in 84% including English & Maths. Outwood Grange is an Outstanding school recognised by Ofsted – achieving all Grade 1s – and was one of the first National Leader of Education Support Schools.
OGAT is a multi-academy sponsor and the Family of Schools currently comprises of a number of schools who work together to ensure that all children irrespective of their starting point receive an excellent education. We relish the opportunity to be part of the much needed regeneration of all areas we work in and wish to play a full role in the wider community. We currently have eight National Leaders of Education; Martyn Oliver, Sir Michael Wilkins, Julie Slater, Rob Tarn, Lee Wilson, Angela Sweeten, Mark Hassack and Angela Hull who all have extensive experience of working in schools from Special Measures to Outstanding.
OGAT is recognised nationally as a high performing chain of schools and is the highest performing Family of Schools in the North of England.
We are proud to be part of the Outwood Family of Schools and welcome parents/carers and students who wish to join us on our journey to outstanding.

The process for Year 6 admissions into Year 7, via the annual admissions process is as follows:
If the number of preferences received for the Academy does not exceed the admission limit, all preferences will be met.
All applications received will be considered in the following order;
b.(i) Children who live in the Academy’s catchment area who have brothers or sisters attending the school at the time of admission
(ii) Other children who live in the Academy’s catchment area
(iii) Children who live in that part of the Academy’s catchment area which is designated as an option area.
In all categories, when decisions have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, children living nearest to the Academy, measured as the crow flies, have priority.
Where a child resides with more than one parent/carer, the LA will take the address where the child lives the majority of the time during the school week as the main place of residence for determining the catchment area.
Where both parents make a separate preference for admission, we will take the preference form from the parent where the child lives predominantly.
