About OGAT


New Free Secondary School Approved for Middlesbrough

We are delighted to announce that our application to open a new free school in the Middlehaven area of Middlesbrough has been approved. The proposed new school will be named Outwood Academy Riverside, a change from the original suggestion of Outwood Academy Middlehaven, following discussions with local children and adults.

We are now entering the ‘pre-opening phase’ of our journey which means we are able to start incredibly exciting work, putting in place all the different elements to make a vision turn into a reality. One of the first steps in this phase is to secure and agree on a site where Outwood Academy Riverside is located, we will update you with news on this when we have it. If you wish to follow our journey updates will appear on our website and through our social media channels.

Thank you to everyone who has supported and shared our vision up until this point. We are ecstatic with the news and what this means to our local community, we will continue to update you along our journey. Our absolute focus remains Students First: Raising Standards and Transforming Lives.

Section 10 Consultation

We would like to hear from all the community in the coming weeks to help inform the Secretary of State for Education’s decision on whether to enter into a Funding Agreement with Outwood Grange Academies
Trust.

We want to listen to your comments and act on any feedback to ensure our School is the best it can be and meets
the needs of the community we serve.
