Our parents have coined a phrase that we are 'Small but Mighty' as we frequently out-compete larger prestigious schools in the academic arena, on the sporting fields or on the stage. Last year, our 23 leavers were awarded a remarkable 16 scholarships to Senior School, we reached the finals of two IAPS National Championships and all 60 children taking Speech and Drama exams received a distinction (for the third year running). We were thrilled to appear within the Top 25 UK Prep Schools in the Times People Power 2021.

We hope this page provides a small glimpse into life at Rydes Hill.
