Samuel Ryder Academy School is pleased to share its resources and facilities with our local community and proud to have the opportunity to do so. Our students are encouraged to look beyond the school into our wider community, and to become thoughtful citizens who make a positive contribution to the world. We welcome parents, neighbours, former students, colleagues, professionals and other schools onto our campus and enjoy sharing with them.
Our wider community includes our active and effective parents association and we are host to many people and groups that use our premises as part of their work, including parent support workers, family learning, and community and schools partnerships.
We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity, and working towards a society in which there is a common vision and sense of belonging by all communities. Our sports centre is a centre of excellence and hosts a programme of fitness, dance and exercise activities that are open to all. We are pleased to be able to share our excellent facilities to host a very wide range of community events for people in our neighbourhood and beyond, from sports, dance, arts and learning events to recreation, support and social groups.
