Parental Comments

A really good school, helps children with the areas they need help in.

My child has a great vocabulary, good friends, greater learning skills due to this school.

I love how happy my son is with school. He loves coming to school.

Amazing school!!!

Think all the children are very well behaved at this school. I love the community feel and how close people and classes are.

They look after my girls and they are doing well.

The school does extremely well in all aspects. They make sure the kids are safe and happy and are learning well. They are always polite and nice to one another on the playground. They’ve got a good mix of different ethnicity which helps them grow better in the world we live in now. My son has been telling me about Poland and Bulgaria and Romania and the kind of language they speak and how they say certain words. I’m happy that he comes into contact with kids from different countries.

I would like more communication in terms of reminders for activities involving parents. I am on a very busy work schedule however text reminders will be a great help for me to participate in activities.


As of the 1st of September 2012, an amendment to the School Information Requirements came into force. The two main changes to the requirements are:

a) Schools will no longer be obliged to publish a physical prospectus
b) Instead, there is a list of specific information which schools will be required to make available on their website (or, if the school has no website, the information must be published elsewhere on the web, and parents must be made aware of its location.)

The legislation for this is The School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012. Details can be found at

On 9th September 2016, the Department of Education released updated guidelines about the information which schools need to publish, and this page has been updated to show how St. Richard's meets these requirements. The data title is on the left hand side, with a link to the necessary information shown on the right.

If you wish to query any of the information, please Contact Us and we will attempt to resolve your query.
