The Adam Gedye Sundial
Over the last few months, work has been progressing on the Adam Gedye Sundial which is located in the north-east corner of the school grounds. Adam was a student at Richmond School, who became the Head Boy, and then returned to the school as a Teacher of Mathematics. After a long illness he died at the end of the last academic year. A dedicated team has been working on this project so that the school has a lasting memorial to Adam, as well as a large sundial that can inspire generations of young people in the years ahead.
Thank you to Mr Lunn and Mr Boulton-Lear who have produced a great video about the project and shows how the work on the sundial is progressing. You can watch it HERE
We are enormously grateful to A.D.Calvert Architectural Stone Supplies Ltd of Leyburn who have donated all the beautiful dressed stones required in this project. The cost of the other materials and the build is around £2,500. Our thanks go to our students who have already raised a significant proportion of this money, but we still have some way to go. If you wish to contribute towards this project then we would be delighted to accept your additional support.

We are very much hoping to surpass the money needed for this project and Mrs Amy Gedye has asked for any surplus money to be donated to the Marie Curie charity who offer care support through terminal illness.
