Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you all enjoyed a pleasant half term break.

I would like to thank Mr White and all the other staff who escorted the students on the ski trip to Volgarida.  Numerous staff at the resort commented on the outstanding behaviour of our students.  They were a credit to Rickmansworth School.


I am delighted to announce the launch of our new look Facebook account. All our latest news, events and photos will be shared on here – please do take a look and Like us!
