Welcome to Ryde Academy
At Ryde Academy we recognise that each student is an individual with a unique range of abilities, qualities and aspirations for the future. Our role is to ensure that all students can maximise their opportunities and outcomes and to allow them to access their future pathways. We must ensure a personalised and individual educational experience for all students celebrating the richness and diversity within our local community.
We believe we have a great deal to offer as the community's local Academy. Parents are welcome to visit the Academy at any point during the academic year. We also hold an Open Evening in October and offer prospective students and their parents the opportunity to see us during a typical working day on one of the tours we organise throughout the Autumn Term each year.
- To inspire young people to shine bright!
- To help students achieve world class learning outcomes by developing world class teachers in a world class community.
- The education provider of choice for students
- The employer of choice for staff
- The investment of choice for parents
