"Active engagement in our local and wider community will help pupils to grow into responsible citizens."
The six existing Catholic primary schools in Richmond were rated by OFSTED as outstanding or good in terms of contribution to the community. They engage fully in borough sports, in charitable and community projects, in artistic, dramatic and musical programmes, and in ecumenical initiatives to name but a few. The new primary school will similarly engage in local events, activities and opportunities across the borough and beyond. The High School will enable many local Catholic children to continue their education within Richmond rather than having to attend Catholic secondary schools outside the borough. This will allow them to take a more active part in their local community and to grow into responsible citizens who are proud of their local area. The College will seek to collaborate with all schools in the borough and to form productive partnerships with local businesses, religious groups, clubs and charities.
