Ricards Lodge High School has been recognised nationally for its excellent results in 2018 based on data from the Department for Education and Ofsted, analysed by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.
On Friday 1st March we held our annual careers networking event for Year 9 as part of a programme of careers education helping our students to make choices about the transition to further learning and work.
As part of our commitment to protecting our pupils online, we have partnered with National Online Safety (NOS) to deliver access to 50+ online platform guides and a free interactive online workshop for all of our parents & carers.
This aims to help empower parents with the knowledge to protect their children from the dangers of the Internet.

Another term has flown, and it's great to see all the girls continue to develop and grow here at Ricards.
One of our main aims this year as a governing body is to drive forward the engagement and connection with our parent community, so I wanted to take this opportunity to see if there are any parents who are interested in becoming more involved in the school and lending their skills and time to the benefit of our girls.
The Year 9 careers networking event is a great example. You could also help by offering work shadowing to Year 12 or offering to deliver an industry-specific assembly to name a few. Beyond this, we are always looking for parents who can help in other ways such as having contacts at locations that would make for a great school visit; expertise at completing grant & funding bid applications; or simply joining our PTA, the Friends of Ricards team, to organise social events and raise funds.
If you are interested in any of the above or have other ways to help our students then please contact me via the school office.

We have had a very busy Spring Term in RR6 with many events, opportunities and challenges for our students. All students have had mock examinations which are a good opportunity for students to evaluate their progress and practise applying the material they have learnt in the curriculum so far.
During this half term we have had several events of significance for Year 12; we launched work shadowing where students will independently find a placement for 15 – 19th July 2019 and the launch of the Higher Education and Careers Programme for all students, which included a year group trip to the UCAS High Education & Careers Fair at Brunel University. We have also welcomed a variety of speakers into RR6.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our students the best of luck in their upcoming summer examinations.
On the 8th March, RR6 Art Department held our inaugural exhibition of art at the Norman Plastow gallery in Wimbledon Village. The first occasion that we have taken over an independent gallery space to show our students' work.
