Rye Hills Academy is proud to play our part in the local community with students taking an active role in the wider communities of Redcar, Teesside and the world beyond.
Over the last few years, our students have helped to raise a significant sum of money for a wide range of charities and good causes, helping people in the UK and abroad. These include The Smiles Foundation, Remembering Rebecca, Comic Relief, The Junction, Food Bank, Teenage Cancer Trust, Children in Need and others. The thing that has impressed us most is that often it is the students themselves that are the driving force behind fundraising and creating ideas and plans to support causes of their choice. The charitable side of our students is truly amazing!
In addition to fundraising, our music department has provided entertainment to some of Redcar’s old-age pensioners. Many of our after-school activities such as music, sport, film, catering and drama, offer students the chance to share their skills and interests with young people and adults from outside of the school. This experience of the wider world leaves students better placed to be active citizens when they leave our school.
At Rye Hills we engage with the wider community by offering use our premises to a number of organisations including sports teams, martial arts organisations, a slimming club, keep fit clubs, craft activities and various other leisure pursuits.
Our Friends Association arranges events throughout the year which are open to the community. We welcome the opportunity to get involved with the local community and we would like to hear from you if you have any ideas of how we can join in.
