Wye School is and will remain a small school, not exceeding our annual published admission number (PAN) of 90 students. We have a close-knit, family atmosphere, with all students known by all staff, strong holistic pastoral care and high standards of behaviour.

When students enter the school, they are placed in one of our houses: Crown, Stour and Olantigh. The house system creates a clear sense of belonging as students compete against each other in a variety of activities, including sport, the arts and academic performance.

Crown House

Named after the Wye Crown, which was cut into the chalk hillside behind the school to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VIII by Wye College students in 1902. It has been maintained ever since and is a well loved local landmark.

Stour House

Named after the River Stour which passes through Wye, flowing through the Low Weald and Kent Downs, from its source at Lenham to its estuary at Pegwell Bay.

Olantigh House

Named after the Olantigh Estate which is near the school and home to a historic mansion, gardens, parkland and farmland. The estate, and the families that have lived in it, have been central to the Wye story and have links with the school through our Local Governing Body.

Year groups are the focus of our pastoral system, run by Heads of Year. Within their year group, students are split into tutor groups and meet daily to register, participate in a range of activities, and reflect weekly on their progress and targets. Tutors form a close bond with tutees and support them both academically and pastorally throughout their time at Wye School. These relationships are established through transition activities and an induction programme when students start their education at Wye School.

  • Wye School brings out the best in my son, makes him think more deeply, challenges him not to be shy, and makes him feel valued and safe.
  • Wye School is an excellent choice for a child. I'm proud to say my daughter goes there
  • Fantastic! My child has flourished in every way since attending the school. She has personally and academically developed at an alarming rate.
  • It is a home from home for my daughter. All the teachers really care about the children and I am confident that she is getting a very good education.
  • If you can get a place for your child dont hesitate and if you dont get in straight away, go on the waiting list.
