Friends of Bydales Technology College

We are the friends of Bydales Technology College, a group of parents, governors and local figures who work together and alongside the teaching men and women of Bydales School to raise funds for the school and help with many other things.

Bydales Tech is a medium sized academy located in the beautiful coastal village of Marske-by-the-Sea, close to the North York Moors National Park. We are extremely proud of our tradition of serving the families of the community of Marske and surrounding areas. Its predecessor, Bydales High School, joined the nationally renowned Outwood Grange Academies Trust in September 2014. In the summer of 2015 they achieved outstanding results and made brilliant progress in ensuring the education and future of the students,

beating the previous school record in 2012 by 13%, when it was judged outstanding by Ofsted. In January 2016 the school was named as the highest performing school in the five Tees Valley authorities for progress compared to similar schools (top 3.6% nationally) and also for Value Added (’Best 8 Qualifictions) at 1026.5. These two key measures also placed the school 3rd and 4th respectively in the whole of the North East in the year 2015.

The Outwood Institute of Education is currently recruiting trainee teachers for places across our Family of Schools and wider Teaching School Alliance. This one year course, starting in September 2016, is suitable for graduates looking to make a difference in a rewarding and stimulating profession. Please see our website below for more details.

Bydales Tech has also recently begun establishing scholarship programmes and apprenticeship schemes with companies across the UK who provide training for career roles. The way these work is that training partners agree to enrol Bydales students, usually one per academic year, onto a specialist vocational training course for free. It is entirely at the discretion of the Bydales teachers which pupils are put forward for these. An example of this would be Bydales’ partnership with Discovery Manchester, the North England arm of Discovery Learning the personal training courses provider. Each year the head of school sports puts forward a student who has shown exceptional dedication to sports and physical education to receive a free personal trainer diploma, assuming they can complete the course successfully.
