Dear Parents and Carers

Spring Concert

This was a wonderful event that showcased marvellous musical talent and many of the attributes that Ricky students represent.  Thank you to all the students who performed and the Music Department for organising an excellent event.

Year 11 Core Trial Exams

Trial Exams in Maths, English and Science are taking place throughout the next 2 weeks. These will occur within subject lesson time so teaching of other subjects is not affected.  Please ensure your son/daughter’s is undertaking plenty of revision so their performance can be a true reflection of their ability, but also help to identify remaining gaps in knowledge which can be addressed in the remaining weeks.

Evening of Dance – Wednesday 20 March

The Dance department will be hosting an “Evening of “Dance” in the new Ricky Play House at Rickmansworth School, on Wednesday 20 March at 7pm.

Non Uniform Day - Friday 22 March

The money raised from this Non Uniform Day will go towards new raked seating and lighting for the new Drama Studio, and the Ricky Playhouse performance space. Year 7’s are asked to bring in a chocolate donation of some kind, to go towards a chocolate tombola at the Years 7 and 8 House Sport Morning; whilst Years 8-11 are asked to bring in a donation of £1.  All Sixth Form students will be raising money for the Toilet Twinning charity. Please see letter issued this week on the School website for more information.

Year 7 and 8 House Sport Morning – Saturday 23 March

The PE Department, Dance Department, SSP and PTA are delighted to invite you to our House Sport/Dance morning on Saturday 23 March from 9:00 to 11:30.

Herts for Learning Drug & Alcohol Workshop - Tuesday 26 March
