The Academy’s Pledges initiative ensures that students understand the value of extra-curricular involvement within and outside of the Academy. Through meeting the ten Pledges, that range from attending enrichment activities to organising fundraising events, students gain confidence and valuable life experiences that will help to prepare them for life beyond Outwood Academy Carlton.

The Pledges encourage students to be actively involved in the wider school community and to realise that their experiences whilst at school stretch further than the classroom. By promoting independence and teamwork, students can apply new skills and improved confidence to all aspects of their lives. Whether it’s representing the Academy on stage, on the field or on excursions, the Pledges encourage our students to get involved, make new friends and take pride in themselves and all they do.
