Proposed Development

We have exciting plans for the future development of Richmond House School.
We are currently in the final stages of planning for a new Early Years building and the construction of a new sports and performance hall. This is split into two phases.
We have been awarded planning permission for Phase 1, the Early Years Building which will be completed in Autumn 2019.
Phase 2, the Sports / Performance Hall  is subject to planning and will follow at a later date.

Early Years

Over the Summer holidays we will be demolishing and rebuilding the Early Years building on the existing footprint, next to the main school building. This will be a purpose built design, with new and exciting redesigned learning spaces and will be completed for the Autumn term 2019.

The new development will consist of a new Nursery School and two Reception classrooms. The building is designed to create the optimal learning environment for the younger children. This will include areas for quieter learning, space for messy play, and a cosy, age-appropriate library to encourage a love of reading.
The area will also include a redesigned, dedicated Early Years playground with new play equipment.

Further updates on the development will be posted on this page. If you have any questions please contact us on 0113 275 2670 or email
