Craig Wright, Assistant Principal

Craig began his teaching career as a RE & Sociology teacher at Park View Community School in County Durham after completing his PGCE at the University of Newcastle. During his time at Park View he developed a fascination with teaching & learning and gained leadership experience by steering the RE department for two terms. Craig joined Ormesby School in April 2015 as a Leader of RE & SMSC. He was fortunate to be part of the transition from Ormesby School to Outwood Academy Ormesby. It has been greatly rewarding to witness first-hand the rapid improvement which has taken place since Ormesby has joined the Outwood family of Schools and to be a part of improving life chances for our students.
In October 2016 Craig joined the Academy’s senior leadership team as an Associate Assistant Principal and welcomes the opportunity to develop in this role. He passionately believes that every community deserves a good school and every child deserves a brilliant teacher. As part of his role he will be working across the academy to support all members of the academy in raising standards and transforming lives.
