I am sitting writing this feeling an overwhelming sense of pride, a feeling that has not left me since our wonderful Prize Day. It was truly a remarkable celebration that embodied everything Richmond House stands for. My heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who made it so special.

The day culminated with our delightful Summer Social. I am immensely grateful to the Parent’s Association for organising yet another fantastic event; I am already looking forward to the Bonanza in September. It was lovely to have a chance to mingle with you all and watch the children enjoy themselves in our beautiful grounds.

As we come to the end of the academic year, it’s uplifting to reflect on all that has been enjoyed and achieved since September. This year has been filled with countless moments that have reinforced how truly special our Richmond House community is.

It’s the collective effort of every single member that creates this unique environment, and I want to extend my deepest thanks to each of you. Thank you 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 to our dedicated support staff; we could not manage without you! Thank you also to the 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-filled and enjoyable summer holiday!
