One of the opportunities I have had is organising our Model United Nations Conference, which fuelled and intensified my interest in the humanities, and helped me gain confidence and leadership skills by having the privilege to be a Chair for a council.

The greatest aspect of this school is the inclusive and safe environment created and student involvement in important parts of school life.

Alongside our school moto, “Educating the Successful Women of the Future,” our feminist colours purple and green empower all students and I to be proud of who we are, regardless of race, gender, sexuality and nationality.

As a student, I feel honoured to be part of a school that has a number of organisations, like the SMSC working group, where we explore different methods of grappling with topical issues, such as mental health and inter-school integration.

With supportive teachers and trustworthy friends, the school has helped me to expand my horizons by obtaining the perfect education that can successfully prepare me for my future aspirations and prospects. Ricards Lodge is a warm and welcoming community and I could not think of a better place for me to reach my full potential.
