Meet The Team
Mrs Jaggy Wolff – Manager
Jaggy joined The Ryleys School in April 2018 as the Deputy Manager of Busy Buddies, which was the predecessor to “The Club”. Before joining the school, and prior to a short career break, Jaggy had worked for 13 years as a Senior Manager in the fast-paced IT industry, managing sales teams, having responsibility for multi-million pound sales targets, and overseeing key client accounts.
Jaggy has a BA (Hons) in Business Informatics from Manchester Metropolitan University, she is married, and has 2 sons, Oscar and Thomas, who both attend The Ryleys School.
The Club at The Ryleys School was established in September 2018, when a decision was made to bring the provision of before and after school care in-house, with the aim of providing a quality service to both parents and children. Jaggy was appointed Manager at this time, and is proud to lead an enthusiastic, committed, and capable Team, whose focus is on the provision of high quality care, and creating a stimulating and rewarding environment, which enhances the school day.
Mr Tom Healey – Support Worker

Mrs Kay Bowker – Support Worker
Kay joined “The Club” in September 2018. Prior to joining the team, Kay had worked in the IT Industry for more than 20 years, starting her career as an IT Trainer, and then working as an IT Systems Implementation Project Manager.
Kay earned her BA (Hons) in International Business from Manchester Metropolitan University, and continued to gain further qualifications including Prince2 Practitioner Level, and ECDL Professional Certification.
