A 5-Step Guide to your 2020 Rye College Application
Message from the Head of College
We warmly welcome you to Rye College. Our mission is to 'create bright futures for all'.
With this in mind, we work hard to ensure that every child is happy and well supported on their educational journey with us. We want every child to grow and flourish in our care.
Our college is set in the attractive heart of 1066 country and is a place where students feel safe and have space to learn. We pride ourselves on being a close knit community where students are known as individuals and where their talents are nurtured.
We are part of a family of schools that serve the young people of Rye from two to sixteen years of age, truly making us a 'local community college'. We are driven by a pursuit of high academic standards regardless of start points and a desire for all students to experience an exceptional education.
Our aim is to challenge every learner to exceed their own expectations of themselves; create a can-do culture and the resilience to excel; include all members of our community through shared endeavour; and nurture diverse skills, talents and abilities whilst celebrating excellence.
Since November 2018, Rye College has been part of Aquinas - an educational trust of eleven schools in the south-east; we believe our students will benefit enormously from our shared ambition to excel. We are proud to be working together with Aquinas to build on our reputation for supporting students in realising their potential and going on to lead fruitful and productive lives.
We look forward to leading Rye College on the next exciting stage of our development.
Mr Dom Downes
