Dear Parents,

It’s been a rather exciting week at Red House….please read on!


Chesterfields House

Some of you may have seen in the press that the planning application for the conversion of Chesterfield House has been successful.  We are now proceeding with the sale of the property to a local developer.  This will allow us to continue with our refurbishment programme and further details are contained in the attached letter from our Chair of School Council.



The letter, which is attached, also outlines our fees for next year.  Thank you for your continued commitment to Red House.


Year 4 in September

I have attached an information sheet to give a little more detail about arrangements for next year to parents with children currently in Year 3.  However, it may also be relevant to parents with younger children, giving a flavour of how the Junior School will run in September and beyond.


PTA Summer Fayre – Saturday 23 June

Don’t forget to come and support this wonderful event.  We’re still looking for:

  • Volunteers to help on the day!
  • Bottles of wine
  • New and unused toys
  • Second hand books

All items can be deposited at either reception.


Alumni Day – Saturday 30 June

We are looking forward to welcoming back a number of former pupils and former members of staff on this day.  Should you know any of our alumni who might be interested in attending, please ask them to email alumni@redhouseschool.co.uk for further details.


I hope you have a lovely weekend.  The end of term is fast approaching and there is much to do.  I’m hoping to re-charge my batteries a little!


With best wishes

Ken James
