Reception Class – it’s only the beginning

Your child’s education starts here.  Rye’s lively, happy and nurturing reception class for girls and boys aged four to five offers the best possible beginning to life at school. Our holistic approach to learning means each child is an individual whose needs are listened to and fully supported. In these formative years, your daughter or son’s happiness is most important of all and we believe Rye’s unique atmosphere offers the foundation for a rich and varied curriculum that’s surrounded by highly enjoyable activities.

Our highly experienced and empathetic teaching staff will ensure that your child will be immersed in the seven key areas of learning with a strong emphasis on play and fun.

What our Reception children love…

  • Running and playing in our beautiful 12-acre gardens and woodland
  • Toasting marshmallows and making mud pies in weekly Forest School sessions, held in our grounds
  • Learning to communicate with others in a supportive, happy environment
  • Singing in weekly music link sessions
  • Talking and listening
  • Reading
  • Making new friends

*We are rated as ‘Excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (2017)*
