Outwood Academy City Fields, formerly Wakefield City Academy, is a mixed secondary school with academy status, located in Wakefield, England. It has over 600 pupils ages 11 to 16 on roll, and its current headteacher is Elizabeth Ford.
In January 2011 the school was renamed Wakefield City Academy when it became an academy and the first school to be sponsored by Wakefield City Academies Trust (WCAT). WCAT came under criticism for executive spending in a leaked government report that also noted Wakefield City Academy's inability to produce records of pupil premium payments. In September 2017, WCAT announced that it was seeking to cease operation and have its schools transferred to alternate sponsor organisations.
