Private School in Oxford 

We are proud to say that school life at Rye St Antony is unique. Private School in Oxford

Growing up in a supportive and nurturing environment which recognises each pupil on their own personal merits goes a long way to ensuring happiness. And coming to a happy school with a positive mindset means our pupils achieve their very best.

Our holistic approach to education, where individuality is key to a happy and successful school life, means that every pupil is encouraged to be ambitious – accept new challenges, and aim high, be curious – take their own initiative in their learning and growth, and play an active part in our school community and to be themselves – to grow as individuals in a supportive, caring and challenging school environment.

Learning is tailored to each pupil – there is no one size fits all. Passionate and dedicated teachers build strong and positive classroom relationships with their pupils allowing them to understand individual learning styles, strengths and weaknesses and tailoring their teaching accordingly. Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom, making the most of our beautiful wooded grounds and the vibrant city of Oxford.

Every day is different and buzzing with activity – alongside lessons you might see a charity event in action, a vibrant programme of enrichment, debating, jewellery classes, photography, sports tournaments or visiting speakers.

Our approach to education is part of the Rye family philosophy which has been passed down from generation to generation ever since the school opened in 1930. You will find our approach refreshingly different – when we say pupils’ happiness, identity and fulfilment come first, we really mean it. Rye pupils are encouraged to be themselves, reach for the stars and express themselves freely.

In our nurturing and motivating environment, our pupils discover their passions, hone their talents and go on to have inspirational individual success in their studies and careers.  They leave us as confident, purposeful and resilient young adults ready to take on the world and make the most of the opportunities to come as global citizens. Private School in Oxford
