The Rydal Academy is a vibrant primary school which caters for pupils aged 3 to 11. The school is housed in an expansive building with a bright, purposeful learning environment. The school benefits from extensive grounds including a multi-use games area, nature garden, allotment, Early Years outdoor learning area, field, outdoor classroom and two playgrounds. The whole school community is passionate about pupils enjoying and engaging in their learning while having the resilience and passion to succeed.

We believe that every child has the right to the very best education. We want to give each child the opportunity and skills to improve themselves and contribute fully to their community. In return, we expect each child to work hard, be tolerant and show respect for others. We want whoever joins us, in whatever capacity, to feel that they belong to a happy, caring, hard working and proud school community.
