To All Staff
All the students would like to thank you for your dedication and support over the past year. We are genuinely grateful and appreciate all your hard work and recognise that you have given up your free time and holidays to support students. With your support and encouragement we believe in ourselves and can achieve anything we set our minds to.
We would also like to thank those who have decided to move on and wish them all the best for the future. We hope that you have an enjoyable summer and look forward to the new academy year.
On behalf of student voice thank you, well done and congratulations.
To our students
We are inspired by the commitment and dedication you have towards learning, raising standards and supporting your local community. An example of this is your most recent efforts in completing a food bank campaign in a short space of time. The Doncaster food bank were highly appreciative of the bags and bags of donations, all of which will help families in need over the summer.
You have embraced learning and made sure that every minute of learning counts as you value your education. It was incredible to see the literacy and numeracy skills developed during VMG session too and we crowned our very own countdown champion! Have the most amazing summer, stay safe, rest and make plenty of memories.
We look forward to welcoming you back in September.

How has the LPPA helped Outwood Academy Adwick?
“The LPPA process has helped us focus on identifying the fundamental areas of staff and teacher relationships that need a change at a whole school level. This focus has then let us plan, both strategically and practically, to improve how the school meets parents’ needs so they in turn help their children’s learning. This, linked with our new mentoring systems, has led to a significant rise in standards across the school over the period.”
