We are undergoing a consistent and positive period of change, with our teaching team focussed on striving to provide the best possible education and learning environment for our pupils, assisted and led by, Lilac Sky Schools.
Richmond Academy is a popular two-form-entry community school with a Nursery. The positive, friendly staff team at Richmond Academy is working alongside the highly qualified and experienced team supplied by Lilac Sky Schools, to raise pupil's standards of achievement and to make rapid progress.
Our main aim is to provide an aspirational teaching and learning experience where pupils understand how to make progress in an atmosphere of challenge and fun whatever their ability.
Take a look at life at Richmond Academy.

View the letter from the Principal following our recent Section 5 Ofsted Inspection, dated 13th September , to see the progress we have made so far. Thank you for your support!
We were very excited that OFSTED recognised the hard work of all our pupils and staff in our recent inspection. We are now no longer a school requiring special measures and are continuing to make rapid progress.
In the report OFSTED stated:
'Children get off to an excellent start because the quality of education in the Nursery is outstanding'
'Pupils feel safe, are well behaved and keen to learn'
'Well focused and carefully managed support means that pupils from groups who have not achieved well in the past are now catching up quickly'
'Senior leaders have a sharp and successful focus on improvement. they have established good routines and systems, a strong positive ethos and sense of purpose'
'The quality of education has greatly improved during the past year'
