Education in Norfolk
Welcome from our Head Teacher
Andrew Johnson Headteacher
I have great pleasure in introducing myself as the new Headteacher at the Ryes College in Cromer since April 2020.
I am a qualified SENCO (Special Education Needs Coordinator) and have experience in several educational settings, including Mainstream, Secondary and Primary and schools that specialise in Social Emotional and Mental Health as well as other Special Educational Needs.
Here at the Ryes, we are a small independent school based within the stunning North Norfolk coastline. As well as the standard curriculum, our school also offers a bespoke learning package. This is tailored to meets the needs of the individual pupil so that they can reach their full potential. Lessons are not only taught in classrooms, we also make use of the outdoor opportunities and spaces that North Norfolk has to offer, such as the parks, coastline and beaches.
We offer a caring and therapeutic approach to our pupils that have barriers to their learning, such as Attachment Disorders, Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH), ASD and ADHD.
Here at the Ryes College in Cromer we believe, and take pride in, offering a nurturing and therapeutic approach in the education for the pupils. We also focus on our Aims and Values so that the young people are ready for adult life.
