KIND DONATION OF PRICELESS SCHOOL MOMENTOS

02 November 2022  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

We were thrilled to meet Bev Howard and Helen Alderson, former students, who left Richmond School in 1973. Bev contacted us to say she had some items from her school days and wondered if we would be interested in them. Bev brought in her original school scarf, some of her exercise books and a slide rule. She also donated two ‘Chronicles’ which were annual school magazines which revealed a fascinating insight into the type of work and activities the students did fifty years ago.

Bev and Helen enjoyed a tour of our Sixth Form College which was the original site of the Girls’ High School.  They commented that much of it was as they remembered but with additions such as the bistro and main entrance.

Bev said: “We really enjoyed returning to Richmond School. It’s almost fifty years since we left so it brought back some very happy memories when we walked down the corridor at school. It was wonderful to see such a thriving school and sixth form.”
