    Chair's Report - Summer 2020

    The summer term has been unique in the history of RPHS.

    Chair's Report - Autumn 2017

    The autumn term is always a very full one, as the school beds into the new academic year. This term has been no exception, but it has been a pleasure to be part of a vibrant school community, growing in strength and endeavour and confident in our future as a place where parents want to send their ch...
