Possible 2-year-old places in Nursery
We are hoping to offer places for 2-year-olds in our nursery from September. As part of our application to set up this provision we need to find out if there is a demand for places. If you (or someone you know) have a 2-year-old and would be interested in a place please click here to register your interest.
Once you have registered your interest we can support you with checking your eligibility for a funded place.

At The Rydal Academy we believe that every pupil should have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which will meet their future needs in education
We believe in the widest possible horizons for learning and aim to achieve the finest Primary education to be found anywhere.
We believe that it is important to extend children’s experiences of the curriculum beyond the school day. The Rydal Academy provides a wide range of activities, which take place at the end of the school day. Extra-curricular timetables are published annually. All activities are free and are run by school staff. Clubs are accessible to pupils from Reception to Year 6 depending on the activity.
