St Richard’s is a co-educational Catholic school offering an inclusive Christian education to pupils of all abilities from the ages of 11 to 16 years. It is our aim to encourage, support and develop every pupil in our care academically, socially and spiritually.

We have high academic standards at St Richard's, as our GCSE results consistently testify. We expect our pupils to work hard, behave well, dress smartly and pursue excellence in all that they do inside and outside of the classroom. We also aim to provide a happy, caring and safe environment in which pupils can learn and develop into rounded, responsible and confident members of the community.

Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. We are a Specialist Science School with High performing Specialist School status. We have a Prince’s Teaching Institute Art Mark, Leading Edge status, Fairtrade Fair Achiever Award status, an Artsmark Gold Award, a Space Education Quality Mark, Green Flag Eco-Schools Award and Investors in Careers at the highest level. Our last Diocesan Inspection (November 2018) and interim inspection (2021) graded the school Outstanding. During the academic year 2018-19, the SSAT awarded the school Exceptional Education Awards at Transforming Level in: ‘Engagement with Key Stakeholders’, ‘Climate for Learning’ and ‘Leadership through Moral Purpose’. In 2019-20, the SSAT awarded the school two further Exceptional Education Awards at Transforming Level in ‘Professional Development’ and a ‘Variety of Teaching Approaches’. In 2020-21, the SSAT awarded the school another Exceptional Education Award at Transforming level in Wellbeing. An OFSTED inspection in October 2021 graded the school outstanding in ‘Behaviour and Attitudes’, ‘Personal Development’ and ‘Leadership and Management’.

All children are unique and precious individuals with different talents and aspirations, and our efforts are directed into ensuring that they feel both valued and challenged.
