Welcome to and From England

Hi everyone - we are the English part of the DEF blog. We are Outwood Academy Adwick and we are situated in a village north of the town of Doncaster in the north of England. Our Academy has more than 1200 students aged between 11 and 19 years old. We have really a smart uniform and our tutor groups are organised into what we call VMGs (Vertical Mentor Groups) - what this means is that in every tutor group there are students from every year group in the Academy so that each VMG feels a bit like a family. Each VMG is named after a different country and then we are organised into continents. We think that international links are very important and we have an international mascot - a teddy called Ofted who accompanies every international visit we make. We'll put some pictures of Ofted on the blog when we can. We are really looking forward to working with our partners in France and Denmark - so welcome and good wishes!!
