Welcome to Laurus Ryecroft

Welcome to Laurus Ryecroft, a new secondary school that opened in September 2018. As part of the Laurus Trust, we are relentless in our pursuit of excellence and determination that every child succeeds.

Moving to Secondary School

Welcome to our virtual transition information page for students moving to our secondary school in September.

Unashamedly academic

For state students it hasn’t always been a level playing field, until now. We are unashamedly academic with a reputation for the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds.

Message to parents/carers: If you are arriving by car, the school is now accessed from Lumb Lane (M43 7LJ) and NOT Cryer Street. Please remember to drive on to site to drop off or collect students in order to prevent congestion on neighbouring roads.

Thank you.
