About Us

We are a welcoming and supportive academy, with a relentless determination to provide the very best education for every child. We place children at the centre of everything we do, with a focus on creating a culture of success and a positive climate for learning.

OPA Kirkhamgate joined the Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) in 2013. As a member of the Outwood Family we believe in putting Children First, raising standards and transforming lives.
