About Our School

Cayley School is a small rural K-grade 8 school of approximately 150 students, situated in the hamlet of Cayley approximately 45 mins. south of Calgary. We cherish our small size as this means we get to know each of our students as individuals. We are very proud of our vibrant music and sports programs where all students have the opportunity to participate. Our caring and committed staff work hard to ensure they meet the learning needs of all students. Doors open for students at 8:10 a.m. and the learning day begins at 8:20 a.m. Morning recess runs from 10:20 – 10:40 a.m. – Lunch is eaten in classroom supervised by classroom teacher at 11:55 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. followed by recess from 12:15 – 12:45 p.m. Our playground is an awesome space for kids including many play structures, climbing logs, and two garden areas as well as a large sports field with a scenic vista of the surrounding prairie. The school day ends at 2:55 p.m. with busses leaving at 3:00 p.m. We have an active School Council that meets monthly. One of the many roles they play is to provide a weekly hot lunch day, which our students always look forward to.
