Darren Smith - Principal

My experience in the teaching profession has spanned over the last 15 years. I began my career in teaching in Nottinghamshire as an ICT teacher and then progressed to become the Lead of ICT and English, whilst being part of the Senior Leadership team.

I commenced with Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) in 2014 as Assistant Principal at Outwood Academy Valley which steered me to make the move on to Outwood Academy Portland in the role of Vice Principal.
The experience I gained within this role led me to become Vice Principal across 4 academies simultaneously in the Southern OGAT region.
