Outwood Academy Bydales is located in the beautiful coastal village of Marske-by-the-Sea, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. The predecessor Bydales School, that was in special measures at the time, joined the nationally renowned Outwood Grange Academies Trust in September 2014, and formally became Outwood Academy Bydales in February 2015.
In the summer of 2015 students achieved excellent GCSE outcomes, some 13% higher than the previous school record in 2012, the year it was judged outstanding by Ofsted. In January 2016 the school was named as the highest performing school in the five Tees Valley authorities for Value Added (the ‘Best Eight’ Qualifications) at 1026.5, and also top for progress of students compared to similar schools.
In the Summer of 2016, results climbed again to new record levels, for example with 78% of students achieving GCSE grades A*-C in both English and mathematics.
In 2017, students achieved an outstanding 85% 9-4 grade in both English and maths, and 75% of students left with a grade 5 or higher in both these key subjects, the highest attainment on Teesside. On average, students left with almost 3/4 of a GCSE grade higher than the national standard across eight of their key subjects, shown by a Progress 8 score of +0.70. In mathematics, 46% of students, almost half the year, left with a 7-9 grade (equivalent to the previous A/A* grades) in mathematics.

Why not come and visit, and see our fantastic students and staff at work? You are welcome any time.

‘Word of the Week’ is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. There is an Academy WOW each week, displayed around school and on the website, and its use is reinforced by VMG tutors and in school assemblies. The word is designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings, in a drive to improve student articulacy to even higher levels.

“As vocabulary is reduced, so are the number of feelings you can express, the number of events you can describe, the number of the things you can identify. Man grows by language.” – Sheri S. Tepper
