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. We aim to fulfil your child's unique potential and exceed your expectations. Our 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. 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 our excellent Key Stage 2 SATs results ensure that we are ranked in the top echelon of preparatory schools nationally and 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 because it combines a family atmosphere, in which children develop confidence, 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. I warmly invite you to visit Rydes Hill and see our flourishing school in action on any school day.Mrs Stephanie Bell, M.A. (Oxon), Headmistress.
