Rye St Antony is a Roman Catholic independent boarding and day school for girls aged 3 to 18. There are also places for boys aged 3 to 8. The School is highly regarded for its academic standards, its happy and purposeful atmosphere, its strong sense of community and its emphasis on the value of each person as an individual. Pupils are helped to understand their strengths and weaknesses; they are encouraged to accept challenges and learn initiative and independence. They also have many opportunities to contribute to decision-making for the School, thereby learning how to play an active part in the school community and in future communities to which they will belong.
When Rye St Antony was founded its aim was to provide each girl with a sound Christian education which would enable her to develop her talents and which would foster qualities of character that would lead her naturally into responsible adult life. That aim is as relevant now as it was in 1930. Happiness in life comes through self-fulfilment, and this we hope all pupils will achieve. Everyone is asked to observe the following principles. - In the eyes of God all human beings are of equal dignity. - All human beings have talents which should be developed and enabled to flourish. - There is a spiritual dimension to life which must be recognised and fostered. - Charity and justice should be exercised in all circumstances. - Each individual should be aware of the surrounding community, considerate to all members of it, and alert too to the wider community, local, national and international. These principles underlie the specific aims of each department and each member of it, and they should be evident in the School’s general atmosphere and in the behaviour and attitude of each member of the School. The School's sacramental life is of fundamental importance, the Eucharist in particular uniting the School with Christ and his Church and giving a focus to prayer, both liturgical and private. The School’s commitment to Catholicism orientates all its members in a common vision of the world. Thus, the School aims to provide an environment in which the full potential and individuality of each pupil can be achieved. Education is understood to be concerned not only with intellectual development but with the development of the whole person, and the curriculum is designed to give scope to the full spectrum of abilities and interests represented in the School. Pupils are helped to understand their strengths and weaknesses and the reasons for their successes and failures; they are encouraged to accept challenges and learn initiative and independence. They also have many opportunities to contribute to decisions that affect the School, thereby learning how to play an active part in the school community and in future communities to which they will belong. The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and the School expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
