We are seeking resilient and forward-thinking people to support us to realise our Trust’s vision that every student will leave RTS with excellent academic outcomes and a clear purpose for the next stage of their lives.

We have already established a vibrant, inclusive school that provides an excellent experience for every member of its community. In five years, we have grown from 125 students in Year 7 to 750 students across Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11. The years that follow promised to be exciting as we continue to grow into our permanent building and new sports centre.

The school is uniquely situated on the Richmond Education and Enterprise Campus with Clarendon Special School, Capella House School, Richmond Upon Thames College.

Our first Ofsted inspection took place in January 2020 and we are delighted that the inspectors rated the school ‘outstanding’ for personal development and ‘good’ for the quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, leadership and management, and overall effectiveness.
