About Us

We are proud Outwood Academy Bishopsgarth is rated Good by Ofsted and we are delighted to be based in the market town of Stockton-on-Tees, in vibrant County Durham.

We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place students at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

The Academy became part of the Outwood Family of Schools in 2016 and as a member of the Outwood Family we believe in putting Students First, raising standards and transforming lives.
