It is hard to fully absorb the fact that we have reached the end of the academic year and that so much has been enjoyed and achieved since the beginning of September. It felt like such a precious gift being appointed Headteacher of Richmond House and I worried the reality of the role would take the shine away. Quite the opposite has happened. Over the year I have had lots of evidence and affirmation that this really is a special community to be part of and know that it is the contribution of every single member that makes it so. Therefore, I would like to extend heartfelt thanks to parents, guardians and families, for your support during the year; your kindness has been humbling. Thank you to all our inspirational teachers and teaching assistants, for your hard work and enthusiasm. Thank you dedicated support staff; we could not manage without you! Thank you also to Governors, for your guidance and encouragement. Finally, thank you, pupils of Richmond House, for your commitment, kindness and energetic approach throughout what has been an incredibly special academic year. Each of you have accomplished so much and I am so proud of you all.

For those moving on to pastures new, everyone at Richmond House wishes you well in your next chapter in education and life. Thank you for your contribution to our community. Know this will always be your school and that you will always be welcome back with open arms.

I wish you all a fun packed, enjoyable summer holiday.

Mrs Young
