About Rye St Antony School

Rye St Antony School Oxford based independent day and boarding school for girls aged three to 18 and boys aged from three to 11. Rye St Antony is highly regarded for its happy and purposeful atmosphere, an atmosphere in which pupils enjoy working and achieving. The school aims to develop bright and enquiring minds in young people who are being encouraged to grow steadily in their understanding of themselves and others.

Excellent teaching and exemplary pastoral care, supported by superb facilities and a wide range of opportunities, allow our pupils to thrive academically and personally. We want them to love learning and to be curious and creative. From the youngest Nursery children to the impressive young women of our Sixth Form, Rye pupils learn to think, to question, to express themselves, to value what is truly important, and to use their education to go out into the world to make a difference.

Learning, not only through academic studies but also through the impressive range of creative, active and enriching opportunities in our extra-curricular programme, gives pupils skills that truly prepare them for life. Helping pupils to develop resourcefulness, the ability to work in a team and understanding of different perspectives, not only supports the curriculum but gives them fundamental skills for life.

Learning as part of a mutually respectful, diverse and supportive community gives pupils both the confidence to succeed and an understanding of their own responsibilities to others and the importance of the contribution they can make. Empathy, appreciating difference and learning to live together are key elements of their personal growth. Our pupils explore the world, starting in our own beautiful and inspiring grounds situated among the myriad cultural and educational opportunities of a vibrant and international city.

Learning to recognise that there is a greater purpose and spiritual element underpinning our lives is at the heart of our school’s ethos. Our Catholic foundation means that we are rooted in values of respect, tolerance and integrity, recognising the value of each uniquely loved individual with their own innate gifts and helping these to grow. Extending this respect to others in practical ways helps members of our community live out the call to love our neighbour and additionally grow lifelong bonds of friendship.
