“At the heart of Catholic education lies the Christian vision of the human person.” (Religious Education in Catholic Schools-Bishops’ Conference 2000)
We are a Catholic High school and a Primary High school working as an all-through College serving the Catholic parishes of Richmond, and beyond, that reside in both the dioceses of Southwark and Westminster.
The College is part of the Catholic Church’s international family of schools. Religious Education in the school is in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church, and religious worship is in accordance with its rites and practices. At all times the College serves as a witness to the Catholic faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
As a Catholic College collective worship plays a fundamental part of daily school life and enables us all to join together as one in prayer and worship.
We believe that St Richard Reynolds Catholic College is special because of the sense of community, and the relationships between teachers and pupils. Being part of this team engenders respect and a love of teaching and learning, celebrating each individual for their talents and becoming the person God has created us to be.
We achieve this by ensuring pupils engage with their faith daily, through a combination of worship, assemblies and masses, as well as liturgies, adoration and reconciliation at key liturgical times of the year. Mass is celebrated every Wednesday morning in the College.
Another key part of College life is putting pupils’ and teachers’ faith into action through Service and the Common Good; whether this is through the house system and fund-raising, Pupil leadership with our Chaplaincy Team or links with our Parish communities.
