Be Rye girls school

We’re proud to say that school life at Rye St Antony really is unique and you can’t really capture the essence of it without coming to visit. This is why we say our doors are always open for you to come and have a look around.

Our holistic approach to education where individuality is key to a happy and successful school life means that every pupil is encouraged to accept new challenges, take their own initiative and play an active part in our school community.  Learning is tailored to a pupil’s own strengths and interests – there is no one size fits all category here.

Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom, in our beautiful wooded grounds and further afield.

Every day is different and buzzing with activity – alongside lessons you might see a charity event in action, a cake sale, fun library activities, sports tournaments or some of our hugely varied clubs.  Each new day inspires and delights, but just as importantly, we support one another. From older pupils helping the younger ones through mentoring to school councils, everyone has a part to play.

This is all part of the Rye family philosophy which has been passed down from generation to generation ever since the school opened in 1930.

You’ll find our approach refreshingly different – when we say pupils’ happiness, identity and fulfilment comes first, we really mean it. Rye pupils are encouraged to be themselves, reach for the stars and express themselves freely.

Come and take a look around to sample the famed Rye atmosphere for yourself. Girls School

“At Rye we were encouraged to be curious, independent women, something at the time we did not believe we were. Now I am at University, I realise that is exactly what I am”
