Ryde School Welcome

Welcome to the Ryde School website
Ryde School with Upper Chine is an independent co-educational day school for girls and boys aged 3-18. The Headmaster is a member of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC).

Dr Nicholas J. England

The Head of the Junior School takes responsibility for pupils aged 3-11, and is a member of the Incorporated Association of Prep Schools (IAPS).

The Aims of Ryde School

To provide a carefully structured and thorough education which enables pupils to achieve their academic and personal potential and to develop skills appropriate to the world of work and life in the twenty-first century;

To enable pupils to develop as citizens of integrity, who place service to others above themselves, who are both communicators and listeners, who have the confidence and self-esteem to lead others;

To ensure a civilised, caring, healthy and happy community which emphasises high moral standards, self-discipline, emotional and spiritual development;

To encourage pupils to participate in an extensive range of sporting, cultural and enriching activities;

To develop an understanding of our responsibilities and our duty to serve the local, national and world communities.


We are proud of our achievements in exams, as pupils ‘add value’ by performing well in relation to their abilities.”

Ryde School is non-selective and caters for pupils with a wide range of abilities, we are equally committed to stretching the most able to supporting those with difficulties.

However, we do expect all boys and girls to show the capacity to cope with our broad curriculum. Our pupils are provided with excellent learning opportunities, their progress is carefully monitored and extra help is given, as and when required.

As they mature we expect our young people to become increasingly independent and to take responsibility for their own learning.

The teaching is closely related to the National Curriculum but with a wider choice of subjects taught to a greater depth. Class sizes are deliberately kept small to ensure a favourable pupil teacher ratio.

Education is seen as an equal partnership, involving pupils, teachers and parents. We look to develop personal skills such as self-reliance and team work. We are proud of our achievements in exams, as pupils 'add value' by performing well in relation to their abilities.

Ryde School Senior


“We believe that two years in the Sixth Form provide a most exciting pinnacle to a Rydeian's school career.”

We believe that the two years in the Sixth Form provide a most exciting pinnacle to a Rydeian's school career. Not only do most of our pupils choose to finish their days with us, but some new pupils join us at this stage, to take advantage of our small A level class sizes and wide choice of subjects. Our approach to A Level work, coupled with the careers and university entrance advice which is available, leads to outstanding success.

Ryde School Sixth FormAbove all else, we seek to develop the skills of our Sixth Formers, to enable them to take a lead, act as role models for younger pupils, to contribute positively to the School's management and to prepare for university and beyond. We expect to develop the academic and personal potential of young people to enable them to become citizens of integrity, who place service to others above themselves.


Ryde School Boarding

Although Ryde School provides education for boys and girls on the Isle of Wight, we also look after a number of boarders who travel over from the mainland or further afield. Our spacious campus at Bembridge is home for our boarders, many of whom go home at the weekends. This flexible arrangement allows busy parents and pupils to work hard in the week and relax together at weekends.

Pupils travel into Ryde from Bembridge each day on a school bus, returning in the evening to eat, work, relax and sleep.

“The boarding campus is a wonderful, friendly place to be. I feel like part of a big happy family. The pupils are like my brothers and sisters, and the staff, my parents. It is so nice to come ‘home’ after school each day.”
