Mrs. Patricia Prime

It is with great sadness and a heavy hearts, we would like to inform you that our dear Mrs. Prime passed away on Monday morning 13th August.


This was very unexpected and will be a great shock to our past and present students. She adored teaching at Redhurst and often praised the work ethic and commitment of our school and pupils. She had a joy for teaching and a unique ability to touch each child and student in her care to achieve the best from them. The students will miss her dreadfully, but they repaid her with their love and respect.


She was a wonderful inspiring lady – one of the greats, known and respected in the Dance World producing many professional dancers, actors and actresses in her time and lately encouraged our students to enter the dance profession and have faith in their abilities.


Her stories and expertise will be hugely missed and we should feel proud and privileged to have known her. Miss Kay had a conversation with her the previous Friday and she left her in great spirits as she was talking with enthusiasm about next term and the show. It is hard to comprehend that we will not see her again.


We will of course do something in her memory, but meanwhile should you have any memories or messages you wish to share, Sian her daughter and family will be pleased for us to pass them on. Please email us on


The end of an era. Our apologies for being the bearer of such sad news.
