About Us

We are proud that Outwood Academy Valley is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and we are delighted to be based in the large friendly town of Worksop, near Sheffield and Nottingham.

We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

The Academy became part of the Outwood Family of Schools in 2012 and as a member of the Outwood Family we believe in putting Students First, raising standards and transforming lives.
