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.
With over 10 acres of land, which includes an outdoor yurt classroom and a range of sports pitches and tennis courts, the school has a superb sporting reputation and its strong culture of music and drama is demonstrated in impressive performances and concerts throughout the year.
Every child is encouraged to develop and explore their own interests and strengths, academic or otherwise, and the children leave at age 11 as well-rounded and self-assured individuals.
