About St Richard’s Catholic College

A warm welcome to St Richard’s Catholic College

dcA warm welcome to St Richard’s Catholic College Guided by Gospel values, St Richard’s offers an inclusive, Christian education to pupils of all abilities from the ages of 11-16 years.


Ours is a happy, family school where everyone is encouraged to strive ‘to be the best you can be’, and to look out for others, especially the vulnerable. ‘Faith in action’ through service to others is key.


High expectations and a culture of support and encouragement enable each child to discover and develop his/her God-given talents.


We also aim to provide a happy, caring and safe environment in which pupils can learn and develop into rounded, responsible and confident members of the community.


We have high academic standards as our GCSE results testify. We expect our pupils to work hard, behave well, dress smartly and pursue excellence in all that they do inside and outside of the classroom.


We see all pupils as unique and precious individuals with different talents and aspirations, and our efforts are directed into ensuring that they feel both valued and challenged. We are never complacent and are thus always striving to make our school even better.


I hope you find the website informative and that it gives you a taste of life at St Richard’s.
