Rydes Hill Preparatory & Nursery

Welcome to Rydes HIll

Rydes Hill is a non-selective, one form entry Catholic School educating girls from 3 to 11 and boys from 3 to 7 within idyllic surroundings in the Guildford suburbs. We welcome families of all faiths and beliefs and we are immensely proud of our small, close-knit school and of the level of individual care extended to each child who passes through our doors.

At home with our traditions and embracing the best of current educational practice, we carry the interests of each child at the heart of all that we do. This is evident in our excellent academic provision which prepares each child for the senior school of their choice. Being truly independent and not tied to any senior school, all of our children are supported and guided from the moment they start until the time comes to make the decision about what their next steps should be.

We recognise that happiness and well-being are the cornerstone of academic success and our children are given the confidence to believe in themselves and follow their dreams. When our leavers return to see us, it is heart warming to hear about the brightness of their futures, of the friends they have carried with them and of the affection in which they hold their Rydes Hill days.

Whilst the main class entry points are Nursery, Kindergarten (Reception) and Lower Preparatory (Year 3), pupils can be accepted into all year groups, places permitting, and at any point in the school year.
