Together we can achieve

About Us

School Clubs

We believe in giving our children a rich and varied curriculum.  This is achieved through extra-curricular activities.  Our clubs run before and after school. Our clubs are open from Upper Foundation Stage to Year 6.

Breakfast Club

Would you like to have breakfast with your friends before school? Have a game of pool, table football, listen to music or play loads of other games? Then come along and join us!

£1.80 per morning payable via Parent Pay.

Breakfast club is run by Miss E Chapel, Mrs J Williams and Mrs A Crawshaw. Early morning childcare from 7:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. provided for pupils of Ryhill J, I and N School when attending Breakfast Club.

Please enter the school through the large playground doors (No admission after 8:30 a.m.).

After School Clubs

There are a variety of after school clubs for all year groups. Please contact the office if you wish for your child to attend one. Some are very popular so you may be placed on a waiting list. Thank you for your co-operation.

We firmly believe that providing after school learning opportunities:

  • Complements classroom learning
  • Encourages good habits for learning
  • Encourages pupils to take greater responsibility for their own learning
  • Leads to improvements in the attendance and behaviour of some pupils
  • Provides opportunities for staff to interact with pupils in a more informal setting

We ensure we provide a range of learning opportunities to promote the knowledge, skills and understanding of our young pupils and aim to raise their aspirations and develop a love of learning.

Children’s University

Ryhill School is part of the Children’s University project. The project will see our children take part in extracurricular activities across the area and every hour will be logged in a special passport. They clock up the hours by taking part in sport, art and craft activities and after 400 hours the children are awarded a gold undergraduate degree. But it does not stop there, children can go onto postgraduate, doctorate and even honorary recognition if they complete 1,000 hours of activities. Organisations involved include Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Theatre Royal Wakefield and Xscape, in Castleford.
