We are delighted to announce the appointment of Mr Chris Bouckley as the new Headteacher from September. Mr Bouckley joins the school from Fulneck School in Leeds where he has held the position of Vice Principal, Head of Juniors for 6 years and is also currently the Chair of the Junior Heads Committee for the Society of Heads. Prior to this he spent 8 years as Deputy Head of Heathfield Preparatory at Rishworth School.

Born and bred in Halifax, West Yorkshire, Mr Bouckley relocated south early in his career where he worked at Brentwood School in Essex for 17 years. A passion for sport saw him head the development of the subject at Brentwood, eventually leading the school 1st XI football team to their first National League title. He moved back to Yorkshire 18 years ago with his wife and his two sons, who have grown up in the area. He still enjoys a variety of outdoor activities including skiing, cycling and football but has a diverse range of interests including geology, performing arts, behavioural science and cookery.

Mr Chris Bouckley said “I am delighted to be appointed as the Headteacher of Richmond House School. I first visited the school over 15 years ago for a sports fixture and was struck by the warm and friendly atmosphere. I am excited to be joining the Richmond House family, and I look forward to taking the school from strength to strength.”
