I would like to warmly welcome you to the Ryecroft Academy website.

Our website is a place where parents, carers, families, stakeholders and prospective parents and carers can access a wealth of information about the academy.  In addition to this, the website provides you with a sense of the quality, culture and ethos of our fantastic and nurturing school of which I, as the Principal, am immensely proud.

The professional team have ensured that the academy has made rapid progress and deep rooted and sustainable improvements.  This has been confirmed by our recent Ofsted Inspection which was amongst the first to be conducted under the new framework and, to this point, remains one of the strongest outcomes achieved by any school in the country under that framework.

Parents and our wider community can be confident that every one of our children is safe, cherished, encouraged and brilliantly taught.

The professional team wholeheartedly recognise that our children are wonderful and deserve nothing but the very best.

Ryecroft Academy benefits extensively from being a part of The GORSE Academies Trust which is passionately committed to providing an exceptional education to some of the most disadvantaged pupils in the Leeds city region.

As an academy, we are extremely fortunate to be in receipt of significant capital development investment which is transforming our building and site into a first class, charming and vibrant educational facility.

It is a privilege to lead Ryecroft Academy and I am proud of our identity and the unique character of the school.  I hope this is successfully captured in our vision.

If you would like to find out more about the remarkable things that are taking place at the academy then please do contact us.  We would love for you to visit us to see the impact of our exceptional work first hand.
