Welcome to Outwood Academy Foxhills.

Outwood Academy Foxhills (formerly Invenio Academy) opened on 1st September 2014, sponsored by Outwood Grange Academies Trust. Outwood Grange Academy founded the Trust to lead the improvement of other schools in the North East of England. The Trust currently sponsors a number of secondary and primaries in the region. Outwood Grange Academy has been a National Training school for nine years and has been accredited as one of the country’s first Teaching Schools.

Our Academy vision is “Students First.” We put our students at the heart of everything we do. We simply believe that “the whole point of schools is that children come first and everything we do must reflect this single goal.” (Sir Michael Wilkins).

We are committed to providing high standards of education for students. Our innovative vertical curriculum centred on a 2 year Key Stage 3 and a 3 year Key Stage 4 personalises the learning of all students. Vocational, practical, creative and academic qualities are valued equally in the Academy where we really do embrace the ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda.
