“The whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.”Sir Michael Wilkins - Chief Executive
Many congratulations to the newly appointed Student Voice President, Oliver Spacey! Oliver and his team will be working hard over the forthcoming year to represent and support the needs and ideas of the students of Outwood Academy Valley.

The 2014 Sports Presentation Evening will begin at 18:30 and end around 20:30. This event aims to reward and celebrate students sporting achievements over the last academic year. Reflecting TV’s Sports Personality of the Year, the evening will feature awards presentations, live sporting exhibitions and special guest speakers.
Over the weekend of 4th/5th October, 13 Valley students completed and passed the expedition stage of their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. The groups set off on Saturday from Blidworth and Papplewick amidst light but persistent rain. Despite this both teams remained in high spirits and by early afternoon the cloud began to break, giving way to a bright but chilly afternoon. The students cooked a variety of meals and camped at the Robin Hood Activity Centre during the coldest night of the year (so far). On Sunday morning (in clear but bracing conditions) the teams cooked breakfast and embarked on the last part of their hike. By 3.30pm everyone had finished and an impressed assessor gave them his seal of approval on passing this stage of their Bronze award.
