On behalf of our students, colleagues and trustees, I would like to thank you for your interest in a position at Rye College. I hope you find the application pack both helpful and informative.

There is a long tradition of education in Rye that goes back to the foundation of the Grammar School in 1636. At Rye College, we are proud to be a significant chapter in the ongoing story of nearly four hundred years of learning in this ancient town.

There is significant transformational change improving the standard of education and facilities at Rye College – ideal for ambitious and talented teachers to truly make a difference, and build upon our most recent OFSTED good grading. Having seen an impressive rise in progress and attainment outcomes over the last few years, we continue to focus on delivering academic excellence with a commitment to high-quality pedagogy and teacher training. We offer excellent opportunities for those who can deliver in the classroom and wish to progress their career.

We work to instil a sense of responsibility in all our students – a sense of ownership of their learning, of their college, of their actions and of the consequences. In today’s complex world, children need both the knowledge and skills to compete in a global market place but also need a sense of their humanity – the ability to respect, to empathise and to be caring and compassionate individuals.

Our curriculum offer is simple: broad and balanced with an academic core. It combines a foundation in the national curriculum subjects, a focus on academic achievement in English, maths, science and the humanities with a broader offer of suitable academic, vocational and technical qualifications. In recent years, our students have found much success in the creative arts – and this is a commitment we see in our curriculum offer for the next academic year.

We are looking to recruit experienced and newly qualified teachers who want to raise standards through the creation of vibrant and innovative classrooms. Central to this is an ability to work in partnership with our families and other professionals to continue our mission to build an amazing college that delivers excellence for every one of our students.
