Values and vision
Rydens Enterprise School and Sixth Form College wants all students to work to the best of their ability and achieve to the highest of their standards in a nurturing and supportive learning environment. It follows the motto, “believe, achieve, succeed”. The Hersham based secondary school wants students to enjoy learning outside of the classroom and offers a wide range of enrichment opportunities for them to get involved in, including drama productions, school trips and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. As a Business & Enterprise Specialist School, students are exposed to local and national businesses who provide them with vocational learning experiences and careers advice.
"The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good. Pupils speak highly of the care and support given to them by the school and say that they are taught how to keep safe and understand how to stay safe when working online. They understand different forms of bullying and are confident that instances of bullying are dealt with quickly and effectively. Healthy living is supported effectively through sports and extra-curricular activities as well as in physical education and food technology lessons. The school has developed good links with other post-16 providers so that pupils receive a range of appropriate careers advice and support".
