Rye St Antony Senior School

Deputy Head Alex Neil on making make the transition from Prep School as smooth and straightforward as possible

"Enrichment is an important component of life at Rye"

Moving up into Senior School is one of life’s most significant milestones.


At Rye St Antony we aim to make the transition from Prep School as smooth and straightforward as possible. New Senior School girls are welcomed in to our Rye ‘family’ through our carefully thought-out mentoring systems and will have already attended induction days, whether they are existing pupils or new ones.

At Rye we take great pride in the level of our pastoral care – each girl’s mental and physical wellbeing is our number one priority and this leads to happy, confident pupils who willingly accept challenges and perform to the best of their ability in all areas.

Whilst academic standards and expectations are high, our small class sizes ensure active, inclusive and confident learning. Girls at Rye really benefit from teaching and support targeted to their individual needs, strengths and interests.

The Rye Senior School community is happy, busy and full of life as this ensures that our girls reach their full potential, whether academic, sporting or extra-curricular.

Our experienced specialist teaching staff take time to encourage a zest for learning, opportunities to question, research and discover across a broad curriculum. Girls are encouraged to discuss and investigate what they have learned, both in and outside the classroom so that they easily switch from learning with others to learning independently.

Enrichment is an important component of life at Rye, providing a perfect balance with academic learning. Our extensive and imaginative range of enrichment activities are created to fit girls’ interests whilst helping them to accept challenges and grow in confidence and self-awareness.

Do come and witness the Rye Senior School community in action for yourself. We are extremely proud of our school and the activities and achievements made every single day by our Senior School girls.
