We look forward to meeting you and we know that you will have a really happy time here.

At Samuel Ryder Academy you will have the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of subjects and activities.  Sports, music, dance, art, drama, food technology, robotics and forensic science are some of the opportunities and experiences that are waiting for you at Samuel Ryder Academy.

Leaving your primary school and moving to the new, much bigger world of secondary education can feel worrying and stressful.  Our aim is to make all of our new students feel welcome and safe so that you hit the ground running at the start of Year 7 and make a great start to what will hopefully be some of the best years of your life.

If you are joining us from your primary school there is a special Transition Day on Thursday 13th July 2017 when you can visit the school, meet all the new joiners, make new friends and try out some lessons! 

If you are the only student joining from your primary school there is no need to worry.  You are extremely important to us and you will also be given an extra opportunity to visit us in July on single joiners’ day when you will get the opportunity to meet other students who are also the only ones joining from their schools.

We hope you find the following sections useful and if you are joining us then we look forward to seeing you in September.
