Our Director of Education, Jim Shallcross shares some thoughts and ideas about education.
Our Secondary department organised an end of term drama performance. Years 7G & 7L performed `Jack Rap´, based on the fairy tale `Jack & the Beanstalk´, and Year 8 `Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs´ from Roald Dahl’s collection `Revolting Rhymes´. This was our Christmas present to Years 1 & 2 as they have been looking at fairy tales in class.
Year 5 Basketball competition
On 1 and 10 February Richmond Park School hosted its first ever basketball tournament. The event was held in the Richmond Park Sports Hall with Year 5 teams participating from Richmond Park School and Holy Mary Catholic School. The tournament provided a great opportunity to develop new friendships whilst playing basketball on a competitive stage.
Phase II of Building Construction
We are happy to confirm we have now started Phase II of our Secondary building construction. Some temporary changes have been made to our present structure in order to satisfy the security measures required by the local authorities. We are all very excited to see how the works come along and expecting to have the new building ready for September 2022.
Second Open Day 2021
On Saturday 27 February we were delighted to receive more than 50 families interested in visiting our facilities and joining our community either in September 2021 or for the academic year 2022/23. Our Teaching Assistants, once again, did an excellent job leading the different tour groups through the facilities, explaining the different learning spaces and answering prospective parents´ questions. We were extremely lucky with the weather on this second Open Day of the academic year; we were able to enjoy a beautiful, sunny day in the middle of winter.
Some families were surprised that most of our Early Years classes are already full with waiting lists and we are getting nearer every day to our target of the 500 pupils. If you are interested in a place for your child or know of anyone who could be, please send an email expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org
