My School Portal
To enhance the way we communicate with you as parents and manage important information about your children, we are pleased to announce that My School Portal (‘MSP’) is now live.
This new, secure, web-based communication and parental information cloud-based platform is ready to sign up to we would ask that all parents use the system as soon as possible to ensure that you receive all relevant and important information from us. Sign up is easy and once you are into the system you should find it simple to navigate your way around. Attached here you will find instructions to guide you through the setup process.
Through MSP you will now have secure, 24-hour access to personalised data about your child/ren via one username and password.
From one intuitive, simple to use dashboard, you can access emails, reports, attendance records, timetables, sports fixtures, and many other useful features using your smartphone, tablet or desktop devices.
We have spent the last year working with MSP and personalising it for the Radnor community. There are many features that will be added to the portal over the forthcoming months including events and trips, but in the short term we would be keen to receive any feedback you may have. Part of the set up process included having a willing group of parents who tested the portal for us for two weeks. We have listened to their feedback (both positive and negative) and we have made changes where we are able. However, we must make you aware that there are some changes that we cannot make as MSP is offered out to many other schools and we can only work with their basic programme.
We are very excited with this new portal and the prospect of improving further our engagement with you and keeping you even better informed about your child/ren’s day to day schedule and progress.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation. If you have any questions or experience any difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact us by using the ‘contact enquiries’ tab within the portal.
Yours faithfully, Louise Lay, Head of Administration and PA to the Head

Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form Network Evening on Thursday 5 March 2020
We will be holding our Careers Network Evening Event from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. This has proved a very successful and popular event for our Year 10, 11 and Sixth Form students to gain awareness and careers guidance from a wide range of professionals in different industries. The evening is designed to be a relatively informal, networking style event to allow our students to meet with adults and discuss their various careers. To make these evening as successful and useful as possible we need as many volunteers as we can from our parents who are willing to give up their time and help provide some advice and guidance. If you are willing to take part please email Emma Hanrott at email@example.com so that we can provide you with further details.
3rd Annual Radnor House Golf Day - Sunday 14 June 2020
After the huge success of previous events where we have raised £4500 for our school charities, we are looking to hold our 3rd Radnor Charity Golf Day on Sunday 14 June 2020. This year's event will take place at Farleigh Golf Club in Warlingham and our chosen charity is MacMIllan Cancer Support, a charity close to our hearts in the Prep School. This year, we are inviting as many people as possible to attend, so if you are not a golfer, you will be still more than welcome to attend the dinner and raffle prize draw afterwards. Hopefully this will encourage families and friends to all come together to support this fantastic cause. If you are interested in being a part of the day, please fill out the feasibility form attached here. There is no obligation to take part once you have completed this form, but it is important for me to gain an idea of initial numbers. Any questions, please contact Mr Woodward (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please find our menu for next week attached.
