Where do you want to be?

Space to run and play, a wooded haven in central Oxford, modern teaching facilities to inspire a lifetime’s love of learning, a friendly, welcoming atmosphere – Rye St Antony is about so much more than bricks and mortar.  After all, a building without people is just an empty shell.

Of course we can tell you about our state-of-the-art ICT centre and beautifully-equipped Food & Nutrition suite, well-stocked library, sports pitches, purpose-built science laboratories and reception area that’s flooded with natural light.

These are just the conduits for a stimulating and happy learning environment – most important of all is that our pupils and staff want to be here.

People who come here fall in love with Rye and its unique atmosphere. They also fall in love with our 12-acre grounds planted with a huge variety of native trees. It’s rare to find this amount of peaceful space so near to the city of Oxford, a place so famed itself for excellence in education.

Come and take a look around and fall in love with it yourself – you’d be warmly welcomed with tea… and our famous cakes!
