Teaching and Learning
High quality teaching and learning is at the heart of what makes Rye a fantastic Independent School.
Our teachers take enormous pride in creating interesting and challenging lessons, tailored to ensure every pupil makes progress.
At Rye, we create learning opportunities that enable our pupils to become curious, independent resilient learners, helping them be successful in their examinations and develop skills for life beyond school.
The Rye Way
Our teachers work hard to ensure that every lesson they plan and deliver supports and challenges every pupil. ‘The Rye Way’ describes an approach to Teaching and Learning that creates well structured, engaging, and challenging lessons that enables pupils to take risks, be ambitious and reflect on their progress in a meaningful way.
Our five cornerstones to teaching and learning:
- Routines and high expectations
- Challenging learning objectives
- Developing questions
- Retrieval practice
- Meaningful reflection time
