Samuel Ryder Academy

Our vision for our school is to produce responsible young people of whom we can all be proud, who have achieved more than they ever believed possible and who are prepared to make a contribution to their local, national and global communities.

Inspired by the values of our namesake, Samuel Ryder, our Academy is a school at the heart of its community providing an outstanding educational experience for all its students. Our ethos is one of challenge, fulfilling potential and both creating and taking full advantage of a wide variety of educational opportunities. We are at the cutting edge of educational innovation without losing sight of the traditional values that need to be the bedrock of any successful educational establishment.

The values of Samuel Ryder Academy are summed up in the ACE: Achievement, Care and Excellence. The ACE underpins everything that we do and provides a secure basis for all we strive to accomplish.

  • Achievement in academic, artistic, sporting, cultural and other forms with a focus on teaching and learning
  • Care for students, staff and others beyond the Academy community
  • Excellent standards, manners, honesty, personal integrity and uniform

As an all-through Academy, providing education from 4-19 on the same site, the Academy is uniquely placed to ensure the best possible progression for its students as they move through the Key Stages, and to use the best educational practice from Primary and Secondary phases in order to address their needs at all levels. By sharing good practice, expertise and high-quality facilities across all ages, the Academy avoids the dips associated with transition and provides challenge for the most able, whilst ensuring extra support for those who require it.  In addition, our staff have the opportunity to develop a far better understanding than would normally be possible of our students as individuals as they progress through the different stages of the Academy.

We develop and recruit the highest-quality staff in all areas of the organisation to ensure that students of all ages are stretched, challenged and supported in the classroom, by personalised and innovative teaching approaches. Through the Academy’s partnerships, there are opportunities for leaders to work together and also wider opportunities for individuals to take on responsibility across the Trust. The world around us is changing more quickly than we can imagine and our children are on an exciting journey.  It is our privilege at Samuel Ryder Academy to help them arrive at their destination as the best young men and women they can possibly be.

 

Matt Gauthier - Head, Samuel Ryder Academy
