What Our Girls Say


Year 10, School Ambassador

Whilst I am still uncertain about what my future will hold, I know that Ricards Lodge will have prepared me for whatever challenges I may face.

I haven't always enjoyed school, but after learning at Ricards for three years now, I have learnt how lucky I am to receive such a good quality education. This is because of the incredibly supportive community here at the school and in my local area.

A huge number of various clubs and school activities are offered at this school; and after joining the school rugby club last year, I got the chance to compete in a local tournament, which then led me into the world of touch rugby. This has opened up many doors for me and has helped me significantly in rugby union, which I have been doing for many years now outside of school.

As well as this through Ricards Lodge I have completed my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh, this has taught me teamwork, trust, and resilience and was of course, great fun. I hope to continue on this journey by undertaking my silver DofE next year.

My favourite school subjects include maths, design and technology and PE. I hope to have a career that incorporates these passions in the future.
