Since moving my daughter to The Ryleys, we have seen a huge change in her. She has made great leaps academically and has settled in extremely well making  new friends. We couldn't be happier!

                                       

We love The Ryleys, it was the best decision we made to send our son here, he is thriving and we couldn't be happier. We have a great relationship with his teachers and the head, we always feel listened to. We always feel no matter the teacher, they know every childs name and always take an interest in each and every child.

How many schools can say that?

 

Fantastic staff and a great community feel. He has excelled during his time at The Ryleys. He is more than prepared for his 11+ exams and we have no worries about getting in to his chosen senior schools. Most important of all, he is happy and still loves going to school.
