14th January 2019 | Head's Weekly Message |

Dear Parents and Carers

I hope that you had an enjoyable Christmas break and I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.

Can I please draw your attention to the letter issued earlier today via GroupCall by the Chair of Governors, Tony Walker. The link to the letter is given below:


Our School Production, ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’, is now only 2 weeks away (23 - 26 January). Can I please encourage you to purchase tickets for this event. Every year we are amazed not only by the efforts of the staff from the Performing Arts Department in producing such wonderful shows, but also by the talent that our students display in these performances. You will not be disappointed – to book tickets, please click here:


Year 13 Trial Exams and Year 12 Internal Assessments commenced this week. I hope the students have prepared thoroughly for these so that their performance allows my colleagues to issue them a realistic predicted grade in the subsequent data reports you will receive. I would like to wish all the students the best possible success in these exams.

We are holding a Parent Panel next week with the specific focus of seeking ideas on how to improve our Secondary transition process. If you are a Year 7 parent and would like to come along, please contact Mr White at swhite@rickmansworth.herts.sch.uk.
