Welcome from our Head

The Old Vicarage is an iconic Grade 2* Listed castle on Richmond Hill and is home to the only girls’ prep school in Richmond.

The school provides an excelleClare Stricklandnt educational experience for your daughter. The girls thrive in a safe, secure and stimulating environment supported by outstanding teaching from experienced and dedicated staff.

Classes of no more than 15, enable teachers to understand the individual learning profiles of each girl, ensuring that their potential is recognised and nurtured.

The broad curriculum is stimulating, engaging and diverse.

The girls have the opportunity to shine through music, art, drama, sport and through the excellent extra-curricular programme. The girls are encouraged to question, explore and have the confidence to try all of the new experiences and opportunities available.

The girls leave the school equipped with the skills to face the challenges of the modern world. They are creative, confident, ambitious and have the self-belief that there are no limits to what they can achieve. The girls at the Old Vicarage develop friendships which last a lifetime and treasure their memories of their time at the school.

We welcome you to join us at the school and look forward to meeting with you soon.

Mrs Clare Strickland
