Welcome to Richmond House, a school where children are happy to learn.
I hope you enjoy your first glimpse of our truly wonderful School. A website can never convey the true atmosphere of our School, it can only offer a flavour. The essence of Richmond House lies in the ‘intangibles’, which can only be absorbed by experience.
Our School is the right place for you and your child, if you want them to be happy to learn, confident and stretched academically. With small class sizes, our children are constantly visible, which allows us to personalise the learning for them and keep a close eye on their progress throughout the year, ensuring they reach the goals they are capable of. In turn, the children will follow their pathway to the destination of your choice, with an enjoyment of learning and the confidence to succeed in whatever they choose to do.
Mutual respect and inclusivity are central to our community; the children are the life of the School and everything we do revolves around them and their development; whether it is within or beyond our extensive curriculum.
We are an ideal size, big enough to compete successfully in many sports and academic competitions, to perform many wonderful productions, and to make many good friends. However, we are also small enough to know children individually and that allows us to create opportunities to develop self-confidence and resilience through a caring and nurturing environment.
Our aim is to allow young people, to be confident in themselves, to become responsible and upstanding members of society; to show integrity, humility and have a strong sense of fairness, honesty and respect. They will develop high aspirations and understand that application, commitment, determination and perseverance are the cornerstones to success.
Now you have taken a peek through this window, why don’t you come through the front door and see what our School looks like in practice? I would be very happy to show you around, where you can convert the intangible into the tangible.
Richmond House School is ideally located in Far Headingley, 3 miles from the city centre of Leeds, there are many good schools in and around our area and choosing to invest in your child’s education is not an easy decision to make. In brief, we have small class sizes along with specialist teachers and rooms, including Art, DT, Music, Sport and Languages.
We have over 10 acres of sports fields, including a Yurt, an outdoor learning area and a large private car park. We offer flexible, wrap around care, for all children from 7.30 am until 6.00 pm and holidays clubs all year round.
Choosing the right school for your child is a personal decision, so please do come and look around the school during a normal school day, speak with children and staff and experience for yourselves the warm, unique and happy atmosphere we have at our school.
Starting school is a big step and we welcome children from the term in which they turn 3 into our nurturing and family environment. Children are taught the Early Years educational curriculum by fully qualified teachers alongside specialists in French, Music, PE, Drama and Outdoor Learning. They develop new skills and flourish within the safe and stimulating surroundings of the Early Years setting, where they grow in confidence ready to move up into Year 1.
We offer a challenging and varied curriculum, within extensive sports fields and specialist rooms. We are a two form entry, with small class sizes which allow for all children to learn as individuals and involve themselves in the extensive range of opportunities on offer. Academic success is reflected in our examination results, with children attaining above National average and being awarded many scholarships at their chosen senior schools.
