Choosing Richmond Park Academy

https://drive.google.com/a/richmondparkacademy.org/file/d/0B85eFujIUlVRdGpDclFRWFF4UXpLWjNVNk5YZ2p5aVNkLS1j/view?usp=drive_webChoosing a secondary school for your child can be a very stressful process! The right choice can depend on a number of factors from exam results and progress through to a gut feel regarding the personality of the schools you are considering and how that personality will fit your child.

Richmond Park Academy is in the middle of a dynamic transformation as our new Principal, Mr Mundy-Castle, starts to implement his vision to take RPA on to the next level. That vision is focussed on delivering excellent outcomes across our school community. The following initiatives have already been implemented in the first half term of the 2016/17 academic year:

  • We have successfully launched our Key Stage 3 Saturday School which runs every Saturday from 9:30am to 11:30am supporting students in English, maths and science

  • We have launched our after school homework support sessions which allows students to stay at the Academy until 5.00pm for homework and independent study

  • We have invested over £15000 in the dining room to ensure that we have enough seating for students during lunchtimes

  • We have employed six new learning support assistants to ensure that our students with additional educational needs are being fully supported in lessons

Our school video gives a real taste of both RPA's aspirations and the inclusive, encouraging personality that it has. You can see it below and there is a link from the home page.

You can also view copies of all of the subject summaries that were available during our 2016 Open Evening and, above on the right, a link to the online school prospectusGCSE results can be seen on our key information page.

Getting to know Richmond Park Academy is as easy as sending an email. Mr Mundy-Castle runs a weekly Tea, Talk and Tour event every Thursday morning between 9.00am and 10.00am. Tea and a short presentation by Mr Mundy-Castle are followed by a tour of the school during the working day. It is a great way to see RPA at work and ask Mr Mundy-Castle those questions that are important for your child. Book your tour at contactus@richmondparkacademy.org.We look forward to sharing our school with you.
