Welcome from the Executive Headteacher
Our Federation aims to deliver a consistently high quality education for the children and families within the Ryedale community and surrounding locality. We believe we are ‘stronger together’ and collectively strive to ensure that our young people are given both the opportunity and support to achieve their potential.

We are delighted with the progress made within all of our Federation schools since our establishment in July 2016 and we are committed to continued improvement.

We would consider other schools joining the Ryedale Federation and welcome the opportunity to talk to interested local schools and their Governing Boards.

If you would like more information on the Ryedale Federation please get in touch via my PA, Stephanie French, on 01439 772610 or email

Welcome from the Chair of Governors
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Ryedale Federation.
The Ryedale Federation was established in 2016 and reflected a growing trend in education towards greater collaboration between schools. By sharing knowledge and resources across our four schools we believed we could provide the best education for young people in the Ryedale area.

Working collaboratively has delivered many benefits for the children and young people in our schools, our staff, and the local communities we serve. We are not complacent though, and we continue to look for opportunities to further improve the services we provide.

I hope you find the information on this website helpful.
We are very proud of our schools, and our dedicated staff will be delighted to welcome you to them.
