Outwood Institue of education


The Outwood Institute of Education vision is simple: to put students first through offering world class leadership, professional development and training in order to improve the life chances for young people.

Welcome to Outwood Academy Portland 

Outwood Grange Academies Trust is proud that one of its six academies designated as National Teaching Schools is based in Nottinghamshire at Outwood Academy Portland, Worksop.
Together our academies form the Outwood Institute of Education Teaching School Alliance.
The Outwood Institute of Education strives to ensure the best outcomes for children in all schools.  By working together to create a network in which outstanding practice is shared and staff are given access to world class professional development, we aim to ensure that every child receives the best education.
The Outwood Institute of Education has the vision that every school is welcome into the alliance; be that secondary, primary, outstanding schools or schools in challenging circumstances. We are an inclusive and geographical wide alliance who will support any school in becoming a Teaching School in their own right.
