What the school says...

If you would like to give your child an exceptional start academically and socially, with happy memories for life, then Rydes Hill Preparatory is the school for you. Our independent Catholic school welcomes families from all denominations and we believe that every child benefits from the loving care and Christian values that underpin all we do. We accept girls from ages 3-11 and boys from 3-7.

Our experienced and dedicated teachers encourage self-esteem and give our pupils a strong educational foundation, and we are proud of our outstanding academic achievements: year after year many of our pupils are awarded scholarships at leading senior schools. A vibrant variety of opportunities and challenges also await your child outside the classroom in our wide-ranging activities and clubs programme.

An education at Rydes Hill is an investment in your child's future, combining a family atmosphere with inspirational teaching to create a lifelong love of learning. The best way to experience our friendly and dynamic ethos is to walk around and talk to our enthusiastic pupils and teachers, and we invite you to visit Rydes Hill and see our flourishing school in action on any school day.

What the parents say...

For the last four years, both of my children have attended Rydes Hill, and it has been a wonderful experience. While the school is very academic, Rydes Hill also has an incredibly nurturing environment. Seeing other children move on from Rydes Hill to senior schools in the area, I think by the time girls finished at Rydes Hill they are very confident and well spoken. And, they definitely carry all of the training and instruction they receive with them.

It is a huge privilege to be a Governor at Rydes Hill. It is such a special place. There is a lovely atmosphere in the school - everyone seems truly happy and there are always lots of smiling faces. The pupils are a delight and clearly benefit from the dedication shown by the staff who are really committed and talented. The pupils achieve great things in and out of the classroom. Rydes Hill gives them a wonderful grounding in all respects.
