Ricards Lodge High School
We have a strong relationship with our neighbours at Ricard’s Lodge. The excellent facilities at this secondary school, such as the Astroturf pitches, are used by our children to allow for a wide range of sports and activities during breaks and lunchtimes. When our children leave Bishop Gilpin in Year 6 they go to a wide range of schools. Ricard’s Lodge is where a number of our girls have chosen to continue their outstanding education.
As a learning community we are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for our children and our staff. We have collaborated with Roehampton University on an Action Research project. The aim of this was to ensure that our class teaching practices are based on the best research evidence. Our staff have been engaged in conducting their own research, and reading research evidence created by others.
