  • Ryde School is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2 to 18 on the Isle of Wight.
    The school has recently celebrated its Centenary Year. Ryde is a Round Square and IB World School and aims 'to promote a healthy atmosphere of learning in which pupils seek to develop their full potential.'

    Head Master Mark Waldron says: 'In academic matters, we encourage an independent attitude, one where each pupil wants to learn and make full use of the resources. We offer a range of activities to develop other important skills and talents.'

    'We also want to prepare our pupils socially and culturally for their adult lives which is why our School Mission and Purpose talk of the characteristics and skills we hope to foster in all those in the School and which have been so needed in recent months.'
