Three Richmond House pupils were selected as finalists in the Harrogate Ladies’ College ‘Inspirational Women’ Essay Writing Competition. The prestigious writing competition was launched to coincide with International Women’s Day and tasked children in Years 3, 4 and 5 to write about an inspirational woman in their lives.

Alice, Miles and Scarlett were invited to a special luncheon at the school where the winners were announced by Nick Hancock from Your Harrogate Radio Station and the essays were read aloud by inspirational woman.

We are so proud of our finalists and delighted to announce that all three received recognition:

1st Place Overall in Year 5 Category – Scarlett

3rd Place Overall in Year 5 Category – Alice

Special commendation in Year 5 Category – Miles
