The Oxford Dictionary defines "news" as being:
So although one could argue that what is referenced here no longer pertains to the recent, these items were certainly considered at their time noteworthy of publication and, as historical records so often do, yield to us new found informations, giving insight into the lives and times of our ancestral Richians.
Over the years the local and (at times) national presses have reported on successful and newsworthy exploits of Richians, both young and not so young. The Headmasters of Tommies have from time to time felt the obligation to keep scrapbooks in which to paste such items. These scrapbooks of press cuttings, scanned and rejigged, are available here in this 'STR News Archive' section, together with other sources of published and broadcast School "News", chiefly generated by the school itself.
Access into each part of the news archive is either by clicking directly on the item heading or otherwise selecting from the drop down menus under a heading; in each case a new tab will be opened.
This is the school's ongoing rolling archive of stories and news items published on its website since 15 November 2012.

These were generally produced by the school at regular intervals during the year for the benefit of its staff, pupils and parents, growing from early basic typed and duplicated information sheets, through word processed and photocopied leaflets such as the 'NewsREEL', to fully fledged colour printed booklets, which paralleled the editons of 'The Richian' school magazine. These newsletters were subsequently made redundant by a combination of easily accessed information published on the school website and social media feeds as well as the Headmaster's regular "From the Headmaster" e-mails to parents and staff.
Many of the 'NewsREEL' publications retained in the archive are from the production runs, hence in black and white with often poor contrast photographs. Some however are the full-colour original masters or proofing copies, hence producing far superior definition colour scans, albeit in some instances with the Headmaster's proofing corrections!
