Ryde School with Upper Chine has a been educating pupils for over a century, since 1921. The independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2½ to 18, is set in over 17 acres of grounds overlooking the sea and makes full use of the Island for a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

Team sports, such as netball, cricket, rugby and hockey are played against schools on and off the Island, and in keeping with its Island setting, sailing is also built into the curriculum.

As a Round Square and IB World School, Ryde offers excellent academic teaching and encourages an independent attitude in pupils, who develop a love of learning and make full use of the resources available. 

Ryde offers full, weekly, and flexi-boarding options for pupils from age 10 in two new boarding houses in the school grounds. Millfield, a beautifully renovated Victorian villa for the younger boarders, is now complemented by the award-winning Centenary House, a new purpose-built boarding house, with stunning sea views, designed to prepare older students for university and adult life.
