What the school says...

Richmond House School offers a nurturing, family environment where everyone knows each other, small class sizes along with specialist teaching from nursery in music, PE and languages.
The school is renowned for its outstanding standards of education with the top grade of “excellent” across the board in the most recent full ISI inspection and consistently outstanding 11+ examination results.
