About Us

Ryde School is an island school with a global outlook, offering pupils a unique and beautiful place to work and grow. Ryde is a co-ed school for pupils aged 3 to 18, we offer an very unique curriculum which enables pupils to achieve fantastic academic results, whilst developing skills and character traits which are essential to success in a fast changing world. We are justifiably proud of our academic results at Ryde, both for those who go on each year to universities such as Oxford and Cambridge, or those who, with great effort and determination from teacher and pupil, secure GCSE results way above their national predictions, we are committed to educating the whole child. Our sport, music and drama all flourish, we have very active Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and CCF groups and our new award-winning Bembridge building hosts innovative and creative art and design technology departments. Our independence allows us to offer a curriculum that works for each individual child and the diversity of our students, from both home and overseas, is one of our many strengths. At Ryde we believe we have a responsibility to raise the sights of our pupils, to use this magnificent and secure setting as a safe place from which to take risks and face the growing challenges of a competitive world that cannot be ignored. Ryde is an Island school but with a global vision and the ambition that our pupils will learn here the resilience, values and skills that will sustain them wherever they find themselves in the future.
