What the school says...

Rye College is a good school, popular with families in both East Sussex and Kent. Situated on the heart of Rye, this is a small rural community school in an attractive setting; a place where students can feel safe and have space to learn, where they are known as individuals and where their talents are nurtured.
Our College has a century long tradition on its current site. We prepare young people well for the challenges of the 21st Century whilst holding fast to traditional values. Rye College provides learners aged 11 to 16 with a unique experience; a place where tradition meets with innovation.
Rye College has a sister school, The Rye Studio School for the Creative Industries (the only one of its type in the South East) which is situated next door. The Rye Studio School prepares 14-19 year olds for successful careers within the Creative Industries.
