Welcome and thank you for your interest in King Richard School.

Continual improvement, rapidly improving results and the prospect of a significant investment in the school building means this is a very exciting time in the school’s history and I hope this website will make you want to find out more.

King Richard School is a highly successful small school that provides an excellent standard of education and care for its students.  We set high standards and pride ourselves on knowing each child really well so we can help them thrive and ensure they are ready for the challenges that will face them in the future.

At King Richard School we deliver success. Our students make excellent progress and get great exam results.  But we also know that young people need more than just good grades to lead fulfilling lives.  Therefore, we value some traditional qualities:  hard work, determination, tenacity, compassion and courtesy are all important and we actively seek to make sure our students develop these during their time with us.


This website can only give you a glimpse of what we do and there is nothing better than to see us in action, so please make an appointment to visit.

I look forward to meeting you at the school in the near future.

Gareth Hughes
