At Richmond we strive to 'be the best we can be' and have a driving determination to achieve educational excellence.

I am extremely proud of our academy, the strong values we uphold and the high expectations we have for our pupils both academically and socially. We aim to prepare our pupils to be confident and ready for every stage of their lives, including the move to high school and beyond.

At Richmond there is a collective responsibility for our academy and a strong belief that everyone, both children and staff, can reach their full potential.

I am pleased to announce that our academic results for 2017 are the best they have ever been. Attainment is now broadly in line with the national average at both Key Stage One and Two. Our children have also made outstanding progress in their learning.  This has been achieved through the hard work of our children and staff and the relationships we have developed with our parents.

Jessica Hainsworth
Executive Principal

I am extremely proud to be the Head of Academy at Richmond where every child is given the best possible chance to fulfil our school motto: believe, achieve and succeed. Staff, pupils and families of Richmond are also proud to belong to the Richmond family as quoted in our OFSTED report from September 2017. I echo the message that staff and children believe that Richmond is truly a great place to be where everyone can learn with and from each other.
