The Ryedale Learning Trust

The Ryedale Learning Trust

The Ryedale Learning Trust, established in February 2021 (formally the Ryedale Federation), facilitates close partnership working between ourselves and three of our feeder primary schools. Through this exciting collaboration, we are improving the continuity in learning between the key stages, thus enhancing the educational provision we offer, and ensuring we are best placed to support student progress In Year 7 and beyond.

Our Trust aims to deliver a consistently high quality education for the children and families within the Ryedale community and surrounding locality. We promote healthy, happy, and confident learners that are equipped to succeed in a changing world.

Working collaboratively has delivered many benefits for the children and young people in our schools, our staff, and the local communities we serve. 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.
