Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to our website. I am delighted to be leading the school as we become a member of the second largest multi-academy trust, United Learning.

At King Richard we ensure that every child is able to thrive, develop and succeed in an environment built on the highest standards. Our motto, Excellence In All We Do, captures the importance we place on making every day count. I am very aware that education is the key to unlocking future potential and strive to ensure our students have the perfect learning environment in which to succeed. I am a firm believer in traditional values, respect, hard work, determination and resilience. As a father, I understand how important an exceptional education is to your children and promise you that if the standard we deliver is not good enough for my own children then it is not good enough for yours.

At the heart of our school is ‘The King Richard Way’:

  • A devotion to the best teaching, every lesson, every day
  • A commitment to exceptional progress for all learners from all starting points
  • Ambitious students committed to being the best that they can be
  • Highly skilled staff committed to every student every day

I hope that through our website you gain an insight into the world of King Richard, however, as this is just a snippet, I encourage you to come and visit. Seeing King Richard in action is the best way to truly understand who we are and how important our students are to us.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the school.
