English Heritage Listing Status

Ryde School (the former home of Dr John Lind, 'Westmont') is Listed Grade II, but it is not known whether the Listing covers the more modern buildings on the site.

A plaque naming Old Boys of Ryde School who died in World War II.

This is unusual in that it names a German boy, Thilo Schuch, who served and died as a Luftwaffe pilot.

Many thanks to the staff of Ryde School for providing full names of the Old Rydeians, and also the photographs of two of those killed
