Executive Principal’s Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our website. As Executive Principal, I am incredibly proud to have been given the opportunity to lead King Richard School and work alongside the students, staff, parents/carers and members of the local and wider community who care so much about its future. I share the school’s vision in wanting to provide an outstanding education for the young people of the local area.

My role as Executive Principal means that I not only work with the existing leadership team at the school but can also call upon additional support and expertise, as and when we need it,  from United Learning. As part of a group of schools we are fortunate to be able to access a far wider range of skills and opportunities than any standalone school can offer. I am a great believer in continuous improvement and firmly believe we can build on the recent improvements seen at King Richard. I know that everyone across the school community shares this determination and I am very positive about what we can achieve together.

King Richard’s motto is ‘building character, shaping futures’. I am someone who believes strongly in the importance of good manners, a smart appearance, trying your very best at all times and exhibiting the highest standards of behaviour in lessons, around the site and in the local community. Effort is a young person’s most important trait and harnessing that effort is vitally important at King Richard if we are to develop well-rounded, successful and ambitious young people. I will do all I can to ensure every young person at King Richard gets the very best education we as staff can provide which will in turn set them up for a great life beyond year 11.

This website provides a glimpse into life at King Richard School but can only show a small part of what we are able to offer. I would encourage you to make an appointment to visit if you are keen to discover more and find out why we are one of the most rapidly improving schools in the area.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the school. I adopt an open door policy and welcome feedback at every level. Thank you for your ongoing support of King Richard School.

Very best wishes

Ben Antell
