St Richard Reynolds Catholic College is a federation of St Richard Reynolds Catholic Primary School and St Richard Reynolds Catholic High School which includes a sixth form. It is under the Trusteeship of The Diocese of Westminster in partnership with the RC Diocese of Southwark.
St Richard Reynolds Catholic College is a place where our young people come first, are loved, listened to, challenged and inspired. We are part of the Catholic Church and at all times serves as a witness to our Catholic faith in Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
St Richard Reynolds is a Catholic community rooted in the love of Christ in which we help each other to become the person whom God has created us to be. We do this so that children entrusted to us will:
- experience the benefit of positive relationships
- develop ‘bucket loads’ of confidence
- attain the academic outcomes they need and are capable of
- develop the skills and attributes that will help them succeed in tomorrow’s world
- grow in faith and strive to live their lives as the person God has created them to be
We follow St Richard Reynolds’ call to ‘See the good things of the Lord’ in each other, in our academic studies, in our appreciation of the world around us and in our own God-given gifts and talents.

College Leadership Team Structure
The quality of educational experience
Our core purpose is learning and teaching and this is conducted in an environment that encourages, supports and develops the spiritual, intellectual, moral and physical development of the child.
We are committed to providing children with an inspiring academic experience which is child-centred and stimulating. The issue is not only what is taught, but how well it is taught. We recruit staff for their passion, their enthusiasm and their imagination in communicating with children to ensure that every single child in their classes is engaged, excited and challenged by the learning experience. We know that learning is too important to be spoilt by mediocre delivery.
We are deeply committed to opening the hearts and minds of our young people in every way. We have an outstanding co-curricular provision, including Duke of Edinburgh, music, sports, arts, clubs and societies, leadership and challenge activities, that all add up to a high quality education of the whole person. We also have a music specialism which enables our students to experience best in class music provision and unparalleled experiences both within and beyond the classroom. We believe that this leads to memorable experiences, examination results and preparation for a full Catholic life in the 21st Century
We know that working as a team with parents delivers the best educational experience for all and therefore we work actively to recruit views of our engaged and supportive parent community. We host regular “Coffee with the Principal” as well as actively seeking the views of parents at every parents evening and informally through email, voice and face to face communications.
