About the Academy

The Academy

Outwood Primary Academy Greystone is located in the cathedral city of Ripon in North Yorkshire. It serves the local area bounded by the Harrogate Road and Dallamires Lane.

We have very good relationships with all of the other schools in our cluster. The Partnership has a shared vision to give the children of Ripon exciting and challenging learning opportunities.

We are an inclusive school and welcome all children. We use our Pupil Premium allocation to support our more vulnerable learners, and ensure that all children, regardless of need, are given the attention and support that they may need.
