Outwood Academy Newbold - Standing up to Racism

Student Well-being Survey

As pupils begin to return to school in greater numbers from September, we are keen to understand the impact of this challenging period, and also to understand how pupils are feeling and responding to the present situation so that we can provide the support they need.

To assist this, we will be sending out a survey to pupils from 14/09/20, covering areas such as their engagement with learning during this period and their broader wellbeing. Most pupils will complete this at school. However should your child need to complete at home, we would really appreciate your support in encouraging your child to do so, as it will be tremendously helpful for ensuring that we can provide the best support for your child as possible.

For further information please read the letter to parents provided below.

Students celebrate some wonderful results

In a year when there has been so much change in GCSEs we are delighted to report successful performances at grades 5+ and 4+ in both English & maths. All subjects have shown strong performances in these new reformed GCSEs and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our students, staff, parents and families for their hard work and unwavering support this year.

Principal Steve Roberts said “This year was about continuing to work with and support students as they adapt to and reach the new benchmark standards set nationally in GCSEs. The resilience, focus and determination to be successful will stand our students in good stead in the future. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents/carers and families for their support throughout. One of the joys of working in this academy is seeing how hard staff and students worked collaboratively to achieve success. Congratulations to all our students and thank you to all the academy staff. We are incredibly proud of our students and wish them every success for their futures.

Dr Philip Smith, Executive Principal said, “Congratulations to all involved for a strong set of results at Newbold. Under the leadership of Mr Roberts, Newbold has continued to provide good outcomes for so many students. Everyone is proud of this result, and especially of the students, who have really shown what hard-work and dedication can achieve.”

Another strong set of A Level results for Class of 2019!

Another strong set of A Level results for Class of 2019

Outwood Academy Newbold are delighted to report another strong set of A Level exam results this year. There were strong increases in the number of students achieving top grades and across all measures the performance of the academy is being consolidated well.
The academy would like to congratulate all students on their success and thank students, staff and parents/carers for their hard work and support this year.
Every student has achieved personal success but of particular note in this year’s results were the performances of:

Jordan-Mae Jones achieved 2 A grades and an A* and will be studying biomedical science at the University of Sheffield. On receiving her results Jordan was speechless, but excited to start studying at an even higher level.
Dylan Stapleton achieved A*, A, A, B and will be going to study physics at the University of Sheffield.
Imogen Baines A*, A, B and will be going to study psychology at De Montford University. Imogen said “All the hard work I have put in has paid off”.
Harry Williams A*, B, B and will be going to study mechanical engineering at the University of Sheffield.
Leah Barnett A, B, B and will be going to study criminology at Lincoln University. "I can’t believe it! I actually got the grades and that I am going to University!

At this early stage the vast majority of students have already secured their places at University or progressed onto further training and in the remaining days we hope to place everyone in a university of their choice.

Principal Steve Roberts said “We are incredibly proud of our students and wish them every success for their futures. This set of results reflects the hard work of students and their teachers. Our outcomes continue to be strong and I would like to thank the students, their families and the staff who have worked tirelessly to bring about these great results”.

Dr Philip Smith, Executive Principal, praised the Principal, Steve Roberts, for his outstanding leadership in ensuring students leave Newbold prepared for their next phase in life. He also said, “it takes a community working together to secure this level of success for students, so my deepest thanks go to all parents/carers, governors and staff for supporting the young adults of Chesterfield to enable them to achieve their hopes for a bright future”.

We would like to wish our students every success for the next phase in their lives.

Amazing Contributions to the First World War Centenary Events

Outwood Academy Newbold have collaborated with a number of organisations across Derbyshire to join Chesterfield Borough Council’s Centenary Commendations in remembrance of Armistice. The 11th of October 2018 marked the official launch of events across the Borough. In remembrance and support of the many service men and women who were involved in WW1, the academy has created their very own poppy fall which can be seen in its prominent position on the side of the academy building. It was a team effort to bring the idea to life, with each and every member of staff adding a poppy onto the netting. Year 10 and Sixth Form students, pictured below, were on hand to support the final piece being put in place, taking a moment to reflect on those involved in WW1.

In addition to our poppy fall, on the evening of 11 October 2018, we were invited by Chesterfield Borough Council to attend the official launch of the WW1 Centenary Commemorations. The event marked the start of a series of events taking place across the Borough in remembrance of all those involved in WW1.

It was a fantastic evening and our amazing choir gave outstanding renditions of Viva la Vida and Stand by Me to a packed room of ex-service men and women, dignitaries and visitors from around the County. A massive well done to all students involved in delivering such a wonderful performance, as well as Miss Colley who choreographed the concert.


We have gone from "Special Measures" to "Good with Outstanding Leadership" in just 3 years! Click the link to view the Ofsted report highlighting this fantastic achievement, which recognises our rapid transformation in student progress and outcomes.

We are delighted to see that Outwood Academy Newbold is the top performing school in Derbyshire for student progress and in the top 10% of schools nationally. Click the link to visit the 'Compare School Performance' website provided by the DfE.

Great news for all Year 11 students at any school in Chesterfield and the surrounding area… We are still accepting applications for our amazing 6th Form! Check out our prospectus and application form and get yours in today – don’t delay!

“Pupils’ outcomes have risen consistently over the past three years. In 2017, the progress pupils in Year 11 made was significantly above the national average and substantially higher than the expected level. ”
