Ben Rhydding Village

Our school is in the centre of Ben Rhydding village, about five minutes from Ilkley. We can see the Yorkshire Moors from our school playground and the famous Cow and Calf rocks from the school field. Most of us live in the village itself, but some travel from surrounding areas.
