Why Choose Ryde?

    There are many reasons parents and pupils choose Ryde School for their education, the majority of which focus on the confident and articulate people our pupils become and the happy atmosphere and environment that they are nurtured within.

    The Ryde child from 3 years of age onwards grows into a confident and achieving Ryde pupil and the Ryde pupil that leaves us at 18 to further their education at University/ College/ employment or to follow a gap-year is the resilient, happy, confident, articulate individual that we pride ourselves on nurturing.

    An Island school

    Based in Ryde on the Isle of Wight, we take all the benefits of the Island – sailing, beach and forest lessons, 117 acre boarding site and 17 acre school site. A very safe place to bring up children, we embody the ‘swallows and amazons’ environment children love

    Sports & extra-curricular

    Sailing, rugby, cricket, netball, tennis, hockey, squash, fencing, riding and many more plus clubs and after school activities including CCF and DofE ensure every pupil can find something to excel in


    Many programmes and opportunities exist throughout the school to enrich learning through a myriad of extra lessons, extra-curricular clubs and societies  

    Boarding and the Extended Day

    Full, weekly and flexi-boarding options mean complete flexibility for parents and pupils on and off the Island. The extended day ensures parents and pupils can take advantage of the early Breakfast Club and evening Supper Clubs to extend the school day if required
