The current headteacher is Angela Sweeten.[1]


Redcar Community College was a Foundation School with a specialism in visual and performing arts.[2] In December 2012 it converted to academy status, becoming Redcar Academy.[1]

In June 2015, an Ofsted inspection found Redcar Academy to "require improvement". In November 2015 the school began receiving support from Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT). The school implemented OGAT's behaviour management policy, style of uniform, and appointed Angela Sweeten—previously of Outwood Academy Ripon—as headteacher.[3][4]

In June 2017 it was announced the school would join Outwood Grange Academies Trust, reopening as "Outwood Academy Redcar" in September 2017.[4]
