Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Ben Rhydding Primary Schoool – a maintained primary school, set in the stunning surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales preparing boys and girls to lead lives of significance.  Our school while traditional and structured, is also innovative, rich, and child centered.

We are a one form entry primary school and our academic program begins with our reception entry level for students Ages 4-5 and completes at Year 6.  It is a balanced and integrated curriculum in a classroom where materials are looked after, precise, and developmentally appropriate. After reception class, we transition to a more “traditional” environment that is filled with innovative and hands-on opportunities, ways for children to truly understand what we are teaching.

In addition to our strong academic program our children have the opportunity to enrol in some of our school clubs and music classes that teach everything from drumming to guitar, multi sports, netball, lego, pop choir, dodgeball in our school hall, playground area or on our playing fields.  We seek to provide our students with an atmosphere that develops a lifelong love of learning by exposing them to a well-rounded curriculum that will develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, not only for school but for life.

I extend an invitation to you and your family to come and see us first hand and truly “feel” the Ben Rhydding School Experience.  I look forward to getting to know you and answering your questions about our school, our community, and the admission process.

Mr Peter Timms
Head Teacher
