Make A Difference Day (MaDD) Wednesday 2 October

Make a Difference Day is very important at Radnor House.  On this day the whole school has the opportunity to visit and support a local site or charity. It matters to us that all the students get involved in supporting the local community. We are conscious that the attitudes students develop here will remain with them throughout their lives, so we foster a culture of respect in which our pupils can learn to appreciate their responsibility towards other members of society.

Please find attached a brief overview of the sites we will be visiting this year.  Next week, you will receive an electronic brochure and exact details of what is required of you and your child/ren on this day.  As a prior warning, for the more local sites we ask parents to arrange to transport their children to and from the site they are attending and we also request parents to supply a packed lunch on this day.

School Trips 2019/20

Please see attached a list of the trips we intend to run for Senior pupils during the course of this academic year.  

Year 7 Challenge Weekend

One last update before next Friday.  Can we please ask students to meet in the Senior Hall at 8.20am for registration (this is instead of tutor rooms).  Additionally, an update on Saturday 21 September timings, we will be leaving Broadstone Warren at 11.00am and aiming for a 12.00pm return time to Radnor.  Please check the weather so that students have Wellington boots and umbrellas if needed.

Performing Arts Timetables

The Performing Arts Timetables are available here.  Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change.  Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom.  The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.

Please check the timetables and if you do not see your child's name please let us know at  

Sports Kit

From now on, students are permitted to leave school after Games in their sports kit. This change will provide coaches and players with as much training time as possible.

Second Hand Uniform Shop

The Second Hand Uniform Shop has a new, larger home on the ground floor of the senior school this school year.  We are always very grateful for all your kind donations of uniform, which last year enabled us to take in the region of nearly £3700, all of which goes to the school's chosen charities. 

Thanks to all your donations, we have run out of clothes hangers. So if you’re overrun by them at home we would be very happy to take these from you, as well as any uniform you no longer need. 

The shop will be open on Thursdays from 4-5pm, but Penny also keeps a stock list at home and is always happy to pick up items and leave them for you to collect at other times, or can arrange a time to meet you there. You can contact her via email

Unfortunately, registration for the Triathlon is now closed.  There are a couple of spaces available in Gold and one space in Bronze where competitors have recently withdrawn.

Should you wish to take one of these spaces, we will need the full name of the competitor, date of birth and emergency contact Name and telephone number.  The entrance fee of £10 will need to be paid at registration on Saturday.  We will also require your permission for event photographs to be used by the school.

Please let me know ASAP and I will make the necessary amendments and send you the the competitor information.  Mr Kemp -
