I am delighted to introduce myself as Head of the new Radnor House Prep School, opening in September 2023. Having lived and worked in Richmond and Twickenham for over 20 years, I am very aware of the excellent reputation of Radnor House senior school. I am so excited to be given this opportunity and I look forward to working closely with parents, children, and the wider Dukes community to build upon Radnor’s established success.
I am very proud to be taking the school forward into its next chapter as a nursery and prep school for girls and boys aged 2 ½ to 11. Education should provide the best preparation for next steps into senior school and life beyond, and in my view children should receive an education based on encouragement rather than pressure. The very best results come from a broad base, an interesting and challenging curriculum, and a strong and supportive network of parents, pupils and school.
We have the chance to create something new and exciting at Radnor House Prep School and our core principles of Resilience, Reflection, Respect and Resolve will underpin everything we do.
As a prep school, we will benefit from the wonderful riverside site, and the refit planned for summer 2023 will provide us with more outstanding resources for an exceptional educational experience. Our children will also have the chance to progress directly into Kneller Hall School, the new Dukes senior school opening in Twickenham in September 2023 in addition to Hampton Court House in Hampton. For those who want to look at other 11+ schools the preparation will be thorough and targeted.
I look forward to welcoming parents to Radnor this year. To book a slot at one of our upcoming Open Days, please visit our Eventbrite page
