Rye St Antony School is an independent Roman Catholic boarding and day school for girls in Headington, Oxford, England.


The school was founded by Elizabeth Rendall and Ivy King in 1930, after a visit to the Church of St Anthony in Rye in Sussex in commemoration of which the School was named.

The school was first situated in central Oxford before moving to its present site of 12 acres in Headington in 1939.The school grounds include a Victorian house built by Alfred Waterhouse.

A steady programme of building and development has provided the School with a wide range of teaching and residential facilities. A new performing arts centre was opened in February 2005. [cite web|url=http://www.ryestantony.co.uk/about.htm|title=About Rye St Antony]
