Lydia Baylis Workshop and Concert

Friday 25th April, 2014

The concert raised £376 and the funds will be split between the redecoration of the Music Room and The Xavier Project.


Lydia Baylis Workshop and Concert | Friday 25th April, 2014
The summer term has got off to a cracking start with the wonderful Lydia Baylis concert yesterday evening.  She has our heartfelt thanks – and a whole new set of blue and gold fans!  The school sat enthralled while Lydia sang, with Ross accompanying her on the guitar.

Then the roles were reversed for our children to sing and play for her; she confessed afterwards to being 'completely overwhelmed by the fresh sweetness of their talent'.  High praise indeed, and lovely to hear from her. Lydia Baylis Workshop and Concert | Friday 25th April, 2014

Lucton Aquathlon - a winning quartet!

Monday 30th June, 2014

Four St Richard's girls showed their strength and stamina when they competed in the 4th Lucton School Aquathlon on 30th June.  Despite fielding the smallest number of competitors in the event, St Richard's showed the other schools that their girls meant business!

They first swam in the pool before transitioning in the sports hall and then running several laps of the playing field in very hot and humid conditions.  All four of them performed brilliantly and all were placed in the first three of their age category.

Lucton Aquathlon | Monday 30th June, 2014
1st place, Year 6: Mary Hayton-Lee
swam 8 laps and ran 2000 metres

2nd place, Year 5: Lucy Marriott
swam 6 laps and ran 1600 metres

3rd place, Year 5: Sophie Collins
6 laps and 1600 metre run

2nd place, Year 4: Laura Hayton-Lee

Grandparents' Tea Party

Thursday 15th May, 2014

Earlier this week many of our pupils were joined by their grandparents for a new event - the Grandparents' Tea Party.

On arrival they were given a tour of the school by their grandchildren, who were encouraged to show them, for instance, pieces of work that they were particularly proud of, or their favourite parts of the school or even something that they might think their grandparents might be particularly interested in.  Some of the tours were quite long!

Then everyone was treated to a feast of sandwiches, biscuits and cakes: thank you cooks once again!

Forms V and VI visit the Barber Institute

Thursday 24th April, 2014

Forms V and VI visit Birmingham | April 2014

We all had a fantastic day! We started our day at The Barber Institute with the theme of Dragons and Mythological creatures. We explored the gallery looking for Dragons in sculptures and paintings with the help of our guide Lisa who was absolutely brilliant! She brought everything to life and explained a bit about the history of art as well as the mythological stories that the works were based on. We then had an hour workshop creating our own dragons using clay and wire if required!

Forms V and VI visit Birmingham | April 2014

We had a quick lunch and then managed to squeeze in a sculpture trail culminating in a Barbara Hepworth, before boarding the coach and heading off to the canal. The sun was shining and we had a very relaxed hour looking at the sights from our boat as we drifted along before getting back on to dry land for some quick landscape sketching, giving us all a good opportunity to draw the canal and it’s colourful narrow boats.

All too soon we headed off back to school, clutching our boxes of dragons and feeling pleasantly tired! Forms V and VI visit Birmingham | April 2014

(what they wrote about us...)


The big advantage of a small school is that everyone gets to have a go at everything – so at St Richard’s, every child is in a sports team, gets a part in the school play and tries their hand at an instrument.   The result?  Happy children who head on to their first choice of senior school with confidence and a have-a-go attitude.  ‘The difference in my daughter is amazing,’ says one mother. ‘I can’t recommend St Richard’s highly enough.’  The academic record is enviable – lots of medals in the UK maths challenge; pupils excel at slightly offbeat sports like karate and gymnastics; and the school reports ‘more distinctions in music exams than ever before’.  The dream team at the top, Mr and Mrs Cheesman, have moved on – Fred de Falbe, from Knightsbridge School, is taking the reins.
