Georgie’s design strikes a chord with Richmondshire Concerts

A striking design, created by Richmond School and Sixth Form student, 13-year-old Georgie Hickman, has been chosen as Richmondshire Concerts’ committee members’ badge. Georgie’s stunning graphic was selected as the stand-out design for its interpretation of the Society’s identity.

Sophie steps closer to fulfilling her ambition to be a professional opera singer

Aspiring opera singer, Sophie Montgomery, has made her debut with Scottish Opera Young Company and is already looking forward to performing with them next year. Sophie, a Year 13 student at Richmond Sixth Form College, was part of the company’s challenging, dramatic and powerful production of Gluck’s Orfeo & Euridice.

The only English member of the company, she spent 90 hours travelling to Glasgow, every other weekend from September, for rigorous rehearsals, giving up an enormous amount of time whilst studying for her A-levels this summer.
