OUR ALUMNI FAMILY

You’ll always be a part of Richmond School and Richmond School will always be a part of you! Diverse, dynamic, illustrious, inspiring and impressive, we are fortunate to have a rich and hugely-supportive Alumni who are very much part of our family. Their legacy stays with us (students have included a Prime Minister and a well-loved children’s author) and we are immensely proud of the strong links we have with our ex-students and really value their support.

Our Alumni make a significant contribution to the life of the school and college in so many ways, including: giving inspirational talks, conducting mock interviews, offering work experience and informal guidance to students and generally continuing to be an intrinsic part of the wider life of the school community. So much so, that 31 of our ex-students are very involved with the school and college. They contribute each day as members of staff. That really says it all. If you would like to offer support of any kind in this capacity, please contact sixthformadmin@richmondschool.net
