Fieldwork is widely regarded as an essential component of geography education and at Outwood Academy Adwick the geography department wants to ensure all students experience the joy of deep learning that field work brings. Learning outside the classroom has become an integral part of the geography curriculum in Year 7 and 8 ensuring our students develop practical skills to accompany the knowledge learnt in class. Over 400 students participated in fieldwork during the 2014 summer term, with many Twitter updates from students sharing their success and enjoyment with the wider community; so much so our commitment to this form of learning was noticed by The Geographical Association.

During the summer term all Year 7and 8 students participated in fieldwork in the local environment including traffic surveys, ecological studies, field techniques and urban landscapes. All students studying for GCSE Geography (Years 9, 10 and 11) participated in a trip to the Holderness coast as part of their geographical investigation into the effect of geology on the coastal geomorphology.

Students and staff at Outwood Academy Adwick have settled back into their school day seamlessly this September. Students arrived back at the Academy on Wednesday 3rd September and Year 7 on Tuesday 2nd September looking smart and eager to learn. Our Year 11 students have shown an excellent commitment to their final compulsory year and continue to set a fabulous example to our younger students.

We look forward to welcoming prospective parents to our Open Evening on Tuesday 23rd September from 6pm to 8pm where they and their children can experience our exciting learning environment and meet students and staff. We will continue to update the website sharing news and events throughout the academic year.

Outwood Academy Adwick is once again delighted for their students as they achieve excellent results at GCSE.

“Sir Michael Wilkins, Academy Principal and Chief Executive of Outwood Grange Academies Trust, said he is delighted with the leadership of the Executive Principal, Martyn Oliver and the Principal, Carolyn Blundell as students once again achieve excellent results. We are proud of our students and the support given by their parents/carers, all of the staff at the academy and the governors”.

Carolyn Blundell, Principal, said “These are fabulous results for our students and I want to thank them, their parents/carers and all of the staff at the academy. I am delighted that 59% of students achieved the very difficult new performance measure of 5+ A*-C including GCSE English, maths and now a further GCSE with only a maximum of two vocational results counting in the measure. These results reflect the hard work of everyone involved and I wish all of our students every success in the future.”

    Adwick's Got Talent

    On the evening of Tuesday 4th November 2014, our Safer Schools Partnership Officer, PC David High, will be hosting the ever popular ‘Adwick’s Got Talent’, here at Outwood Academy Adwick. Adwick’s Got Talent is in its seventh year now and every year just gets bigger and better. This event is twofold; it gives our students the chance to showcase their talents in front of a live audience (their families, friends and other members of the local community) and the event helps reduce youth related crime and anti-social behaviour in the local community, during what is commonly known as ‘Mischief Night’. Mrs Brown and Miss Hoban, our music and drama teachers, will lead the auditions and rehearsals in the build up to the event and they will be assisting the performers on the night. This promises to be the biggest and best show yet. By popular request Mrs Blundell, Principal, will again be our head judge supported by two student judges. We have a number of students who have volunteered to assist along with members of staff to ensure it is an enjoyable evening. The price of each ticket includes a light buffet – please refer to the post to find out more.
