Welcome to

Pump Farm School

Teacher and Student

The Ryes College- Pump Farm School is a caring school environment where our young people are given a personalised curriculum to help them to reach their potential.


In addition to the standard school curriculum, we offer opportunities for fundraising, enterprise, vocational courses and volunteering in the community, on a range of projects to develop social skills, employability and economic well-being.


We are based on a beautiful five acre former farm site in the open countryside near Sudbury, Suffolk which enables us to offer unique learning experiences.


Our excellent staff team are committed and dedicated in ensuring that each and every young person achieves. Whilst our website will give you a flavour of what makes The Ryes College a great school, we highly recommend coming to visit us so that you can see us and our young people in action.


Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you want to come and see us

Here at Pump Farm School we really strive to understand the unique needs each of our pupils have and to develop an education package that meets these needs. Our Vision, Ethos and Values all represent our commitment to providing a caring environment that understands each student's background, the difficulties they may have experienced so far, and to help build self-belief and positive experiences moving forwards.
