School Profile

The school has an excellent record of academic achievement throughout all age groups and is the first independent school in the UK to offer the IB Career-related Programme alongside the IB Diploma Programme and our newly linear 2 year A Level programme, through which pupils study for A Levels but also take advantage of the IB courses on offer and add them as enrichment options.  We also offer a one-year Pre Sixth Form course providing excellent preparation for entry into the Sixth Form.

Year after year pupils leave to go on to study at Oxford and Cambridge, other Russell Group Universities and Art, Music and Drama colleges. Pupils succeed academically and are well-mannered, characterful, happy and independent; a result of Ryde School’s dynamic yet welcoming environment.

Set in a beautiful, safe and idyllic island setting just off the South Coast of England, Ryde School with Upper Chine (known locally as Ryde School) is a thriving, prosperous independent day and boarding school for boys and girls, providing exceptional educational opportunities in a nurturing environment – helping them to grow as independent individuals with ambition and purpose. 10 minutes by Hovercraft from the mainland, the School benefits from being near high-speed sea, rail and air links to regional, European and international destinations.

Constantly investing in the future of our pupils, this year saw two new science labs, a new Sixth Form boarding house offering flexi, weekly and full boarding options and a newly refurbished Sixth Form centre, helping pupils to learn to adapt to more independent living and study.

The aims of Ryde School as embedded in the school crest, 'Ut Prosim', have always been focused on service to others, and our pupils are encouraged towards self-knowledge, good governance, academic excellence and leadership in order to contribute positively within their chosen fields.
