Ryedale School are delighted to announce that the Wolfson Foundation have granted us £50K towards the refurbishment of our new science laboratory. This forms part of our new build programme with the laboratory replacing a History and an English room which will be relocated to the new extension.
The bid involved two stages of application and a visit by the foundation’s Education Grant Assessor, Sophie Gibbon. With building work starting this month the timing of this award could not have been better and school are delighted to receive this fantastic support.
The level of grant support from the Wolfson Foundation exceeded our wildest hopes – we’re all thrilled. To be a candidate for funding we had to be rated by Ofsted as outstanding, however there’s always room for improvement. With the help of this grant and our new building we’ll continue in our ambition to provide the best learning environment for all our pupils.”
