The beginning year of a child’s schooling journey is one of the most important years of their life. At St Richard’s we provide a stimulating and engaging learning environment designed to develop the foundation for a love of learning.

Year 1/2

The junior school is a wonderful place for young students to consolidate and extend their learning in a fun and collaborative way. We have a great balance of small group work, partner work and one-to-one learning environments. Learning is hands-on, creative and experimental.

Year 3/4

The middle school at St Richard’s is a dynamic and stimulating working environment. Our focus turns to creating independent and motivated learners. We really start to focus on student wellbeing and their sense of community.

Year 5/6

Our senior school is a place of advancement and accleration. It’s hands on, dynamic and loads of fun. Students explore science, technology & engineering through robotics and programming software. We have an emphasis on developing a welcoming and inclusive culture.


A community resource by St Richard’s Primary School

At St Richard’s we take education seriously.
So seriously in fact that we want to extend education beyond the classroom and have it filter into the community.

One of the foundations of strong communities with healthy people (both mind and body) is access to education.

UpSchool by St Richard’s is an online resource we invite you to explore,  immerse and be inspired by.

This free and growing resource centre is our way of sharing positive and inspiring messages that we feel will have a direct and positive impact on our community.
