Welcome to Richmond Hill Academy


Richmond Hill Academy is a three-form entry school (630 places) with a 52-place nursery and Rainbow Base, a Resource Provision for children with complex communication needs.


Our school is very proud to be part of the GORSE Academies Trust. We have a dedicated staff, each one of whom is committed to securing the very best for the children in our care. We feel very fortunate to work with the children at RHA and we are excited by the journey the school is on. Our vision for our pupils is clear: we believe that every child who attends our school deserves an outstanding education, which will enable them to succeed at primary school and beyond. This is our unwavering aim and one that we will work relentlessly to achieve.


We know that children flourish and learn best when there is a successful partnership between home and school. We place a great deal of importance on the relationship with parents and carers; we are committed to building relationships which are built on trust, mutual respect, effective communication and support.


If you are a parent of children already at Richmond Hill, we are delighted that you have chosen our school. If you are considering sending your child to RHA please do come and see the school and meet the children

and staff; we would be delighted to talk to you more about our vision for the school.


If you would like any more information about the academy, or to arrange a visit, please contact us.  I look forward to meeting you.
