Rydings is a co-educational day, weekly and full boarding school with an equal opportunities policy. We believe that any child who is mentally capable can and should learn, thrive and excel through our system. At Rydings we accept applications throughout the school year with start dates normally set within the first two weeks of the school term. Irregardless of background, parents can feel free to apply as the school practices equality and has a zero tolerance policy for discrimination. The school offers a wide range of supporting programs for students that have learning difficulties at no extra cost to the parent. Any additional arrangements beyond these will attract an additional fee. Occasionally, and on request, start dates can occur mid-term. In this instance, tuition is not pro-rated; tuition is to be paid for the full term.
