Welcome to the Sixth Form

    Ryde School has a vibrant Sixth Form community that upholds the traditional ethos of the whole school whilst accessing and celebrating the world of opportunities that make present day education innovative and full of potential.  

    The aims of Ryde School as embedded in the school crest, 'Ut Prosim', have always been focussed on service to others, and our Sixth Formers are encouraged towards self-knowledge, good governance, academic excellence and leadership in order to contribute positively within their chosen fields. 

    In an ever- changing world and in the knowledge that new technologies have exponentially created not only new channels of communication but also dynamic changes in the workplace, we are excited to offer our students a breadth of courses that, we feel, meet these challenges and make us quite unique: 

    The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which we have been running now for five years, has invigorated and inspired curriculum planning and learning across the school. 

    A Level + courses with its emphasis on the academic rigour of A levels alongside enrichment options respected by employers and universities, allowing students to create their own bespoke set of recognised and respected qualifications. 

    International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) which combines academic IB courses with professional qualifications in business, sporting or sailing. 

    Set in beautiful grounds overlooking the Solent and with a newly refurbished Sixth Form Centre and extensive extra curricular and enrichment opportunities, careers programme and focus on developing your specific talents, in addition to first class academic results, we look forward to welcoming you to our dynamic and happy learning environment.
