Face Masks

Please be reminded that it is a requirement for ALL parents, senior school children and staff to wear face masks when leaving cars and walking into school.  May we please also ask that parents wherever absolutely possible do not congregate in the school grounds.  Children should be collected and parents should leave the school site without delay.

Online Viewing and Safety

Please see the attached letter from Miss Wright.

Co-Curricular Restart

am delighted to announce the return of our Co-Curricular clubs and activities.  We are beginning our Co-Curricular offer with in-house lunchtime only clubs for the next few weeks, as pupils and staff settle into the routine of their new school schedule.  These clubs will not appear on SOCS Co-Curricular, but class teachers will ask pupils to select any clubs they would like to attend for the next few weeks during registration.  We would ask that you speak to your child so that they can communicate with their teacher what club they would be interested in attending.

We are making plans and assessing the risk for a phased return of other co-curricular activities as soon as possible.

With regard to any sports clubs, if your child does not have any other sports lessons on the day of their club, they should still wear their 'COVID friendly' uniform and they will not change into sports attire.

If you have any queries whatsoever, please email clubs@radnor-sevenoaks.org

School Photographs

We are really pleased to confirm that Imago photographers will be attending (COVID-19 safely) RH7 on Thursday 10 September to take individual photographs of all children.  Please send your child to school wearing their COVID friendly uniform (no ties, no blazers and sports kit if they have games or PE on Thursday). 

Data Collection Form

Please can we ask that you complete the Data Collection Form here for your child/ren.  This helps us to keep all pupil records up-to-date.

Ben Nevis  Challenge 

We are in the process of finalising a new 2021 date with the school and hostel for this trip, taking into account the potential restrictions and deadlines for the transfer of some flight bookings.  Please bear with us a few more days on this, and we will inform all concerned directly.  

Amazon Smile 

We are now registered to receive donations (0.5% of the net purchase price), from eligible purchases as you shop via Amazon UK.  It's easy to start donating by clicking here, and selecting Friends of Radnor House Sevenoaks as your chosen beneficiary.  Please note that you will need to make your purchase through Amazon Smile rather than the ordinary Amazon site, but you will be prompted to do this once registered.  We hope to get at least 100 families signed up to this 'win win' scheme this school year please!

Easyfundraising 

We have already raised over £150 from this free scheme.  Like Amazon Smile it is incredibly easy to sign up and includes most of the most popular UK retailers.  This month we can raise TWICE as much as many participating retailers, (inc. John Lewis, notonthehighstreet, Shop Disney), are doubling their donations please join up here 

Second Hand Uniform Shop

Almost £1000 has been raised from the second hand uniform shop just in the last few months, all of which goes to our school charities.  Thanks to everyone involved, especially to Penny Jackson.  

With demand high the shop is looking for further unwanted uniform, especially senior school PE kit. You can send your donations into school via your child to be dropped off at Senior Reception or the Prep Office, and marked for the attention of Penny Jackson.  To purchase any item please email Penny directly on penelopeannjackson@hotmail.co.uk and she will select and leave your item at reception to be brought home with your child, where appropriate.  Penny will then contact you to arrange payment once you have approved it. 

Friends of Radnor House AGM 

Our annual AGM meeting will be held via zoom in late September, the date and link for the meeting will be flagged in this section.  We welcome all parents and staff who are interested in finding out  more about the role and achievements of FoRH7, and our goals for this school year.
