My name is Manon and I am currently the Head Girl at Ricards lodge High School. Primary school was one of the building blocks of my education; going to Ricards has enabled me to develop my skills and expand my knowledge.
I am proud to be a student at Ricards Lodge High School and of the vast variety of ways they have supported me, both with my learning but also with the growth of my character. The teachers are amazing and will always give extra help and guidance if I or any other students need it. They always ensure that the class rooms are a fun and comfortable work space, making it easier to learn and understand.
Hi, my name is Felicity. After a year at Ricards, I have made lots of new friends with help from the staff to encourage us to talk to new people. Ricards Lodge really emboldens you to do at least one extra-curricular club to help you improve your confidence and help you fit in.
Ricards Lodge High School has provided a real variety of activities and opportunities to be a part of, both within and outside of school. For instance, as a Be Strong Online Ambassador, I have been able to communicate with people in the year above and, especially, with year 7s.
My team and I deliver short and valuable sessions that teach year 7s to be safe and strong in the online world.
Hello, my name is Rachel; I am assistant Head girl and Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge Champion for Merton.
Hello, my name is Alice and I have just moved up to Year 8. After my first day at Ricards I felt welcomed and I knew I would enjoy coming to school. However, before I walked into the hall on my first day I felt really nervous because I didn’t know many people in the hall. As soon as we went into our tutor rooms I met lots of new friends and this helped me to settle in.
Ricards has taught me to always have aspiration. It has also provided me with incredible teacher support, which has enabled me to develop the confidence to grasp the many opportunities I have been offered by Ricards Lodge.
