Rye St Antony Prep School has announced its accreditation as a member of IAPS, the Independent Association of Prep Schools, which represents more than 650 outstanding preparatory schools throughout the United Kingdom and overseas.  

The kite mark is a sign of quality and to be eligible for membership schools must reach a very high standard, delivering excellent levels of education and pastoral care to their pupils. There are strict criteria including teaching a broad curriculum and keeping staff members’ professional development training up to date.

Rye St Antony is an exceptional independent school and to be recognised at this level is testament to the hard work of all the teaching staff. Their dedication and commitment to the school and the children is outstanding - Emma Coode, Head of Rye St Antony Prep School

Head of Rye St Antony Prep School, Emma Coode said, “This is a wonderful achievement for our school. Not only does this bring a lot of prestige, but it also enables us to explore new opportunities for staff development and the potential for sporting fixtures on a regional and national level, which is very exciting for everyone! Rye St Antony is an exceptional independent school and to be recognised at this level is testament to the hard work of all the teaching staff. Their dedication and commitment to the school and the children is outstanding.”

Each school that is a member of IAPS is independent and has its own ethos, but they are all committed to delivering an excellent, well-rounded education to the pupils in their care. IAPS schools provide a challenging, purposeful education that makes an enduring difference to a child's development and at the heart of every IAPS school will be Education for Social Responsibility; the promotion of well-being, the rights, responsibility, knowledge, skills and opportunity that enable young people to be valuable and constructive members of society.
