What Our Girls Say

Prathika

Year 11, Assistant Head Girl

I personally see a massive difference from when I first joined Ricards Lodge to now. I feel extremely happy being here. Ricards Lodge is a safe environment with passionate students and dedicated staff.

My friends and the teachers have been very supportive and have been a part of my journey to who I am now. I feel very proud of myself as I have come a long way facing all situations, but it is truly the resilience and trust I had myself that pushed me to do better. As a part of my role as assistant head I will be putting all my effort in ensuring that everyone feels comfortable at Ricards Lodge, and they surely feel at home because we are all a big family. 

Ricards Lodge encourages each and every one of us to develop new skills and aim to do our very best. The school provides various opportunities for everyone and their likes. Some examples are sports opportunities like Wimbledon ball girls, Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme and Maths challenges that are coordinated by the wonderful maths department. Ricards Lodge is a diverse school, we have amazing students and staff from different backgrounds, and we ensure that every individual has an equal opportunity as one of our important school values is equality.

I would like students to feel supported and comfortable in sharing their ideas and to strongly belive in all our school values. This is my last year at Ricards Lodge and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to be a part of the JLT as it will teach me a lot and benefit me in the future. I would also like to thank each and every one who has helped me to push out of my comfort zone and make unforgettable memories at Ricards Lodge High School.
