If you share our values, join our family.

Serving the bustling city of Sheffield, Outwood Academy City was constructed in 2011 with state-of-the-art facilities and joined Outwood Grange Academies Trust three years later.

Prior to achieving Academy status, just 43% of students achieved five GCSEs at Grade A*-C, including English and Maths. In 2018, over 68% of students achieved the new measure: English and Maths combined at grade 4 or above.

The academy has undergone a huge transformation for its 1000 students, with an innovative curriculum and a personalised approach to learning enabling them to realise their vocational, practical, creative and academic abilities.

This was recognised by Ofsted in February 2019, when the academy was judged ‘Good with Outstanding Leadership’. Inspectors noted that, “Leaders and teachers demonstrate high expectations for all pupils. They are determined that pupils achieve well in their subjects”.

You can join us on our journey and build a career that’s equally exciting. Every member of the team benefits from two hours’ CPD each week, along with opportunities to access programmes through the Outwood Institute of Education. What’s more, we are a growing trust currently comprising 21 secondary academies, meaning you can build your experience working with other Heads of Department and potentially impacting on many more students’ lives.

You’ll find Outwood Academy City a warm and welcoming school, where students love to learn and every member of the community feels valued and engaged. We operate at the heart of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, so there’s plenty of scope to build your career across South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and move into the highest levels of leadership.

The Technology Department encompasses Resistant Materials, Graphics, Product Design, Food Technology and from September 2019 we are excited to have added Engineering to our curriculum. You should possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference and have a firm love of your subject and a desire to support our young people to reach their full potential.

Please contact Chelsea Allen, Assistant Principal at the academy on 0114 235 8120 or by email to c.allen@city.outwood.com for an informal discussion or to arrange a visit to the academy.
