Three Rivers Academy is a mixed, secondary school situated on Hersham Road, between Hersham and Walton-on-Thames in Surrey, England. The school has been awarded Specialist Business and Enterprise College status.


The school runs a system of four houses named after local areas; Claremont, Hampton, Richmond and Windsor. Claremont was the first house to win sports day, as well as the house point cup, since the house system was introduced.[citation needed] Claremont currently hold the Sports Day (2017). The Rydens logo represented each of the houses; a stag on the green background for Claremont, a swan on the blue background for Hampton, a lion on the red background for Richmond and a hawk on the yellow background for Windsor. The Three Rivers Academy logo is a boat above three waves of water.

The school's official motto is "Bringing out the best".

Change from "Rydens School" to "RES"[edit]

Following an Ofsted inspection in 2009, the school was rated 'Good with Outstanding Features' and became eligible to become a new style Academy. The governors and Head Teacher decided to move forward with the change of status and opted to rename at the same time. The Rydens name remained, but the abbreviation RES became the official name, standing for Rydens Enterprise School. The school opened as RES for the 2011 Autumn term and was officially opened by local MP Dominic Raab.

Change to Three Rivers Academy[edit]

In May, 2017, it was announced that as of September, 2017 the school would be called Three Rivers Academy after the three local rivers - River Thames, River Mole and River Wey [1]

Three Rivers Academy Sixth Form College[edit]

RES Sixth Form College is the school's Sixth Form. The School runs a highly successful and improving sixth form, whose annual Rag Week is a highlight of the school calendar, with the Rag Week held in October 2012, raising £2,448, split between Surrey Air Ambulance and Heavenly Stars. The Sixth form has had three of its graduates to eventually go on and study at Oxbridge, with this year a further one having received a conditional offer.
