It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Richmond Hill School as the new Headteacher.
Richmond Hill is a two site, child-centred outstanding primary special school for pupils with severe and complex needs from 4 to 11 years of age. All pupils will have an Education, Health and Care plan (EHCP).
In September 2016 the school expanded to include a new purpose-built building which is 2 miles away from the original site. This expansion will give a total in the future of 240 places. The new site is being used by years 1 to 3 and the pupils then transfer to the original site for years 4 to 6.
It is clear to see by all who visit, the caring environment provided by the excellent and supportive staff, enabling pupils to achieve to their potential and experience many enriching and positive experiences. The ‘can do’ attitude and constant strive to improve ensures that Richmond Hill pupils are given the opportunity to succeed to the best of their ability. I am very proud of all the staff at the school and how they are fully committed in helping each young person make their individual progress and develop necessary life skills. The outstanding ethos and the ‘learning with respect and confidence’ motto is something that is at the heart of school life.
