The Ryleys School has been awarded the highest possible inspection grade of ‘Excellent’ in all areas, an award which was judged by the Independent Schools Inspectorate following an inspection in February 2020. 

After a rigorous three day inspection in which inspectors observed lessons, conducted formal interviews with pupils and staff and examined examples of pupils’ work, the ISI awarded the school ‘Excellent’ in both areas of Personal Development and Quality of Pupils’ Academic and Other Achievements.

The Inspectors spent a total of five days in the school, observing lessons, chatting to the children, interviewing the staff, reviewing all documentation and analysing parental questionnaires.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which covers the Nursery and Reception, the school again achieved the highest accolade of 'Outstanding' in all four areas. The Inspectors commented that "Outcomes for children are outstanding" and that "they respond to school life with great enthusiasm and enjoyment."
Following the school's move from boys-only to co-education in 2009, the report recognises the "well-planned, smooth and highly successful transition" which has seen the number of girls in the school grow steadily, with numbers exceeding expectations.
The contribution of teaching within the school was highlighted as being "excellent and meets the school's aim to nurture pupils' gifts and talents and promote success" and that, consequently, "Across the school, achievement is excellent." In addition, the report also highlighted pupils' exceptional success in national tests such as the Maths Challenge, and in the fields of Music, Art and Sport. "Extra-curricular provision is", it stated, "outstanding".
